The Hind’s Head * | Bray (UK)

A picturesque village made famous by its unusually principled vicar, Bray is about as British as it gets – and nowhere more so than The Hind’s Head, which has been serving the inhabitants and all manner of visitors since the 1400’s, when it was first established as a hunting lodge and coaching inn.

Heston Blumenthal’s village gastropub The Hind’s Head is open for lunch on Tuesday to Sunday and for dinner on Tuesday to Saturday. The à la carte menu offers 2 Pre-Starter (£4.50-£5.50), 7 Starters (£10.50-£15.50), 7 Mains (£22.50-£43), 5 Sides (£5.50-£6.50), 5 Desserts (£9.50-£10.50) and a cheese board (£14). There is also a 3-course Set Lunch Menu (£25) and a 3-course Sunday Roast Menu (£44)

We went in November 2018 for lunch. Although I didn’t make any notes that day, I don’t want you to miss out on the pictures of the dishes.

Devils on Horseback – prunes in bacon
Scotch Egg – mustard mayonnaise
Pea & Ham Soup – ham hock, Alsace bacon, mint oil
Confit Butternut Squash – goats curd, pickled raisins, Hedsor honey
Powdered Duck Ham & Soft Cooked Quail Egg Salad
Smoked Salmon – Earl Grey tea-smoked, sour cream butter, soda bread
Duck with Beetroot Pearl Barley
Warm Chocolate Pudding with Orange Marmalade Ice Cream

I’m sorry I can’t do a review of this one, but without notes I simple can’t remember all details of the dishes, flavours, etc. and I certainly don’t want to make something up.
The Hind’s Head is on my list to visit again and I will be sure to do a proper review next time.
