Hind’s Head Hotel, Bray

January 3rd, 2006

Helen and I had a nice lunch at the Hind’s Head Hotel in Bray, near Maidenhead, this afternoon. Owned by the same people who run the no.1 restaurant in the world, The Fat Duck (just over the road), the food was no less extravagant. I had a rabbit and bacon terrine to start followed by a Lancashire Hotpot containing a complete oyster for the main. Helen had some sort of pigeon which she thoroughly enjoyed. It was slightly less expensive than the £100 per head over the road and it’s not the sort of place you’d be eating in everyday. However, it was a real treat.

Mum had a rather enticing “Quaking Pudding” which was created from a secret ancient recipe which I imagine included custard, cinnamon and nutmeg. Tasty.

Afterwards we had a walk round Bray and saw a few other rather expensive eateries. As well as the aforementioned Fat Duck, we also paid a visit to the Waterside and the Monkey Island Hotel. The weather wasn’t fantastic but it was a decent day out nevertheless.

The number one restaurant in the world! Being mere proles, we didn’t visit it.
