ticking off my bucket list #4

Lunch at the Ethicurean.

Another thing ticked off my bucket list! I remember seeing this place on a blog post a long time ago - I wish I could remember which blog! - and have wanted to go there for lunch ever since.

After getting a combination of a bus & taxi there, we realised we could just get the 121 to very nearby, and it runs past Temple Meads train station - so if you can't drive like us but want to go, remember that nugget of info! 

Once we arrived, we were greeted by a walkway made of apple trees, heavy with fruit. We followed the brick path, and looked back at the stunning countryside surrounding us. What I didn't realise before, was that there were a number of artists' studios on the site too. I had a little peek into one, and thought how inspiring it must be to work in this environment.

We were lucky that it was such a beautiful day, and we were seated by the sunny windowsill decorated with rustic bits of wood, gin bottles and meadow flowers. 

To start, Doug had a stawberry salad, which was like a work of art! I had Welsh rarebit, which didn't make such a pretty picture, but goodness it was delicious! 

Next up was a vegetable terrine with lentils for him, and pork belly for me! This time, I definitely had the prettier meal - the colour of the beetroot was just incredible. It actually glowed. And that crackling - woah.

We had a short break from food with a gin cocktail each. One with beautiful apple juice, and one with rhubarb and ginger beer. 

Finally we had a cheese board to share, with little bits and bobs like celery salt, honey, and chutney to go with each. They were all delicious. 

The puds looked amazing too, and I really wish I'd had room to try the chocolate & salted caramel brownie!
