This week, The Pig is mostly…
GETTING in the mood for food at Giggling Squid, who have made the prospect of a no-cheer start to the year virtually redundant by introducing Thai January: a merry (yet super-healthy!) mood-boosting experience offering something for everybody across an array of vibrant menus. Further embracing the authentic Thai spirit of generosity, diners who visit GS for a meal any Wednesday throughout January can enjoy a free starter. Sawadee, 2020!
MAKING Sundays super at No.15 Great Pulteney Street’s eclectically stylish Dispensary restaurant, where Sunday roast classics have been elevated to stellar status and even include a few foraged flourishes. (www.no15greatpulteney.co.uk/eat-drink/sunday-lunch/)
BLOWN away by the Bandook Kitchen, who have revitalised Milsom Place (and the Bath food scene in general!) with their own brand of simple yet sophisticated Indian street food served all day, every day in super-seductive, stylish surroundings (www.bandookkitchen.com)
EAGERLY anticipating a lively meet’n’greet with charismatic food writer Melissa Hemsley (who was recently labelled “the patron saint of busy millennial food-lovers” by none other than Vogue magazine) when she visits Toppings to introduce her brand new book Eat Green on Thursday 23 January (www.toppingbooks.co.uk)
GETTING match fit ahead of an evening with legendary rugby superstar Martyn Williams MBE at the Royal Crescent Hotel and Spa on Thursday 30 January. The evening includes a Champagne and canapé reception, a 3-course feast and a talk by Martyn about his experiences in the world of international rugby, after which guests will have the opportunity to ask him questions about his life and career… and of course, seek his expert opinion on the Six Nations 2020.
