Another birthday, another meal at Pea Porridge. Unusual menu, fabulous food, good atmosphere. Too good to just save for birthday treats. We are fussy about food and where we eat, this restaurant doesn't disappoint.

This was a Birthday Treat for my husband birthday , although, in the past I have eaten at this restaurant, it was over 9 years ago ! For special occassions we usually go to Mason Bleue's in BSE., as he likes white linen, and the attention that is bestowed on each and every customer that enters the restaurant, whether you... More

Go here. Just go here. Wherever you are. Unless, that is, you are not up for pig's ears or lamb's tongues or snails or bone marrow, or if you like your steak overdone (which is to say, medium or more burnt). That said, I'm sure they'd give you the steak the way you want it, without a blink, and I... More

I had a spaghetti starter with anchovies, for main I had pig cheeks which was so succulent. My dessert I chose the cheese board finished off with a port. The desserts looked wonderful and according to our friends they... More
