This week, The Pig is mostly…
OFFERING huge congratulations (and more than a little kudos!) to those lovely Larkhall Butcher boys, who have officially confirmed that they’re opening a second shop on Widcombe High Street, hopefully at the end of this month… pending the arrival of their bespoke butcher’s cabinet from Italy. Chop chop, Piggies! (https://larkhallbutchers.co.uk)
MAKING the most of a modern Indian summer regardless of the weather at a semi-alfresco courtyard table at Bandook Kitchen (Milsom Place) where the Eat Out To Help Out scheme (50% off your bill Monday-Thursday to a max discount of £7.50pp) has been extended throughout October. Prefer to eat in? There’s discounts on click’n’collect, too; visit the Bandook website for full T&C’s (https://bandookkitchen.com)
STAYING with the meaty theme to recommend a steak-out at The Herd (Argyle Street) where the carnivorous feast that is the Steak Sharing Platter brings robust rib eye, succulent sirloin and utterly fabulous fillet steak to the table (accompanied by an abundance of necessary frills’n’fripperies such as beefy chips and chunky homemade onion rings) for less than £25pp – now that’s very good moos indeed (https://www.theherdrestaurant.co.uk)
RAISING a pinkie to celebrate the return of Sweet Little Things super-pretty afternoon tea home delivery service. The full package of afternoon delights includes finger sandwiches, jam’n’cream scones, freshly baked cakes (all homemade), edible flowers, decorative berries and English breakfast tea delivered to your doorstep direct from SLT’s Lower Borough Walls HQ for £18.95pp (2-person minimum order.) Vegan and GF options are available, and delivery is free within a 10-mile radius (https://www.sltbath.co.uk/afternoon-tea-delivery-1)
ENJOYING a staycation experience on the hoof (or rather, trotter?) courtesy of Maureen’s Mediterranean Street Food stall in Green Park Station, aka Bath’s Street Food HQ. Tuck into the most authentic falafel in Bath alongside superb samosas, divine chicken shawarma and all manner of freshly-cooked Middle Eastern delights, lots of them packed into exceedingly well-packed wraps (https://www.greenparkstation.co.uk/food-drink)
