Tuesday, much like every day so far this year, was a rainy one. I know us English people really seem to enjoy talking about the weather but most of the time it's out of sheer frustration or the safest form of small talk there is, you know where you are with weather talk when meeting someone new. I digress. Rich and I arrived rather sodden at the Three Tuns where Hickory Pig is currently residing and offering barbecued delights to the masses, and ordered some drinks which we waited for our friends Jayne and Si to arrive.
Looking longingly at the unlit fireplace the evening menus started to be distributed and our friends joined us with their drinks in hand. The menu was small but despite that I wanted to eat pretty much all of it. I decided to go for the Dirty Burger, I think it was the maple glazed bacon that drew me in, and some fries to share with Rich. He chose the BBQ Pulled Pork which came with chipotle aioli and some home made coleslaw, plus an order of the Hot Wings which came with a traditional celery and blue cheese dip.

For around the £7 mark the portions are generous my burger was pretty difficult to get my mouth around and was haemorrhaging liquid fast, no one could look graceful eating this burger. It was a tasty burger I found the patty could have done with a little more seasoning, but the stars of the show were the maple glazed bacon and the barbecue mayonnaise, sweet yet tangy. Rich lucked out in my opinion the pulled pork in his bun was the best I have ever tasted, really juicy and full of flavour, the red cabbage coleslaw was great with it as was the chipotle aioli I was a little bit jealous if truth be told.
The blue cheese dip that went with the wings was fantastic I would love to have a go a making this myself to go on top of burgers it was so tangy and creamy, it definitely cooled down the heat in the wings. My other favourite part of the meal was the fries, we all agreed that skin on chips are definitely tastier and these were the don of all chips, crunchy, flavoursome, in a word, perfect. Jayne was swayed to order the chili cheese fries, which if I am lucky enough to return I will definitely share some to go alongside a pulled pork bap for a true glutton's paradise.

So you've seen that Hickory Pig pull out all the stops when it comes to making tasty barbecue food the pulled pork alone is phenomenal but they then top it off with all these tasty extra goodies. If you haven't already experienced Hickory Pig check them out at the Three Tuns either on a lunch time or in the evening on most days, you won't be disappointed, I am already looking forward to my next hit.
