One of the many things that makes Slip End's Frog & Rhubarb stand out from the crowd - apart from its quirky name, of course - is its unique combination of village-pub charm and contemporary, Mediterranean-inspired food. At this welcoming pub, hearty British classics such as beer-battered cod and steak, Guinness and mushroom pie vie for attention on the menu with European dishes such as paella and slow-cooked beef stifado. The result is a varied, eclectic selection of quality home-cooked fare with something to please traditionalists and more adventurous diners alike.

We began with tapas to share: garlic butterfly king prawns, hearty Italian meatballs with a touch of chilli, smoked mackerel and piquant horseradish paté crostini, and tangy goat's cheese and caramelised onion crostini. After sampling such bold flavours, we were ready for more, and so happily tucked into slow-cooked pork belly with wholegrain mustard and cider sauce - with crunchy crackling that contrasted beautifully with the tender meat - and, from the specials board, smoked salmon, asparagus and cannellini bean pasta in white wine and creme fraiche, topped with Grana Padano and served with garlic ciabatta. To finish, we couldn't resist sampling the battered Mars bar with ice cream, which was as indulgent as it sounds, and the moreish homemade trifle. The Frog & Rhubarb specialises in both the classic and the quirky - after all, where else can you find gammon, egg and chips, frogs' legs and a deep-fried Mars bar on the same menu
