The Dog and Crook, Braishfield

Now, the plan was to go to Gourmet Burger Night at the Wheatsheaf - but this was recently taken over and no longer does gourmet burgers.  So, instead, twelve of us ended up at the Dog and Crook.  We waited quite some time for our food to arrive, but I think that may have been because we were such a large group on a week night.  

I ordered the twice cooked belly pork, Ian opted for the rump and rib combo.  My belly pork was tasty, the crackling was a little dry in places, but otherwise good.  The mash was creamy and there was a decent amount of veg with it.  Ian's rump seemed quite small and overcooked, and I think he's been a little spoilt with his weekly ribs at The Dolphin because there wasn't all that many in this meal, but it tasty, although apparently a little tough.  The chips were quite nice.  It came with home made coleslaw which neither of us tried.

We were tempted by the desserts, both opting for the chocolate pudding (described as a sponge, with a white chocolate middle and chocolate pouring sauce).  The white chocolate centre was tiny and not very central so was pretty disappointing.
