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.

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.
