the harwood arms

One of my favourite meals in London was at The Harwood Arms. It's in a residential area and a bit out of the way, but it's also the only pub in London to hold a Michelin Star and well worth the extra travel time. Even though you need reservations to get a table, the space still looks an feels like a pub (they even hold a quiz night once a week like a lot of traditional pubs).

Now, on to the food. The menu is kind of a modern take on British cuisine with an emphasis on game meats and local produce. We enjoyed everything. And those desserts! Those desserts were heavenly. We were lucky in that strawberries were just coming into season in London and Paris (sweet strawberries in May? Yes, please.)
Potato bread and soda bread + butter
Cornish crab with raw fennel & green apple
Grilled salted ox tongue with turnip & mustard croquette, bread & butter pickles and dandelion
Grilled lamb chops, crispy pork shoulder croquette, duck sausage and roast potatoes
Poached cod with cauliflower puree, brown shrimps, chanterelles and sea purslane
Chilled rice pudding with first of the season English strawberries and Grassmere biscuit
Sticky toffee and date ice cream with caramelized brown bread and lemon curd
