St Peter's Finger
Pubs and Bars with Restaurants
Hall & Woodhouse seem to have a knack for creating perfect pubs in lovely locations, and St Peter’s Finger might just be the jewel in the crown. On entry the pub has a charming atmosphere and seems to be a favourite haunt for locals. The dining area has ample room for large parties and romantic meals alike.
When we visited for dinner, we were welcomed like regulars. It was hard to look past the tiger prawns served with fresh bread to start, though my partner’s rabbit and cured pork terrine with Melba toast and pickled blackberries.
For my main course, I went for the pork medallions with rosti potatoes and Golden Champion beer sauce. My guest took inspiration from the special’s menu and ordered the British rose veal sirloin served pink with white bean and thyme mash, rocket, sun-blushed tomatoes and chimichurri dressing. Care was taken to ensure that each dish was presented well – we couldn’t help but take photos of our dishes before diving in. For those who still have room, the pudding menu is full of British classics, and we polished off the Eton Mess and chocolate brownie. With delicious coffee and Hall & Woodhouse’s hallmark Badger beer on offer on top of all this, once you’re inside, it’s hard to leave. Even midweek, the pub, was full of diners, so booking in advance is recommended.
