The guys behind Pork & Co have done it again, and thought up a lovely little spot just around the corner. Despite the menu seeming like a confused jumble of dishes, the slightly confusing set-up and the giant pinball machine taking up half of one of the eating areas, it works. An extremely well-priced and casual place for a quite bite to eat, I can’t wait to get back and try out more!
Having already bought a pie for dinner I was a little gutted I couldn’t try out their Ham & Pea offering (next time!), so I went with a toastie. As they do seem to make up their toasties in advance they did me a special no-tomato one, but it wasn’t a problem at all – I hate being ‘picky’ in places! I ended up with a Chorizo & Cheese one, with the chorizo being some of the best I’ve ever had. The cheese was stringy and crispy around the edges, with no hint of sogginess at all. I pretty much inhaled the massive portion…
I also had some fresh pear juice from the dispenser. Sweet, refreshing and utterly delicious, I wish more places offered it.
For two supposedly “light” meals and drinks it came to just under £10 for the two of us (I was only charged for half a toastie, as that was what I ordered, but cos they had to make it allergen-free they gave me the whole lot). A complete bargain, and an ideal place to hide from the rain. If you can resist when you walk past Pork & Co of course!
