Triple Pig

23rd July 2013

Down in Dorset a couple of weeks ago, I visited a very nice pub called The Stapleton Arms with O and his family.  

We started with strawberry mojitos…

while snacking on fantastic pork pies…

and home-made pork scratchings… (which came in little bags tied up with string).

They brought us an amuse-bouche of asparagus soup in tiny teacups.

O had a very photogenic burger –

F had fish and chips (which looked beautiful as well).

And I… had sausages.  Don’t get me wrong, they were great.  But I suddenly realised I’d had three helpings of pig.

Or as O’s sister described it – Triple Pig.  Dangerous.

I’d recommend the pub, the food is really good and the mojitos were excellent.  It’s tucked away in the countryside, so look it up if you happen to be passing nearby.
