Recommended to me by a friend in London prior to departure telling me to anticipate an experience you will not forget certainly lived up to my expectations. The restaurant is so popular that it has bookings 3 months ahead but I was told that you can drop in at say, 6:30 pm and may be lucky to sit at the bar or in the courtyard where seats can be available. Well, we sat at the bar as all tables were booked and our barman Nathan soon made us feel welcome giving us a list of cocktails of names I have never seen in the UK. I settled for a 'Charlie Ross' served in a tumbler that had a kick as strong as a Chicago Bull!! The menu, vegetarian, fish, meat needed the help of Nathan to explain some of the dishes. We had a shared starter which was delicious and then I had a crisp braised port shank, grilled spring onions kimchee, buttermilk dressing and naan. Tender, succulent and delicious. Desserts followed, also intriguing and another Charlie Ross to finish the experience. I have visited 53 countries in the world, ate at some of the finest restaurants but 'The Girl and the Goat', with a wine list of over 149 choices is nothing short of spectacular.
