Spectacular modern bar food
|The Fir Room|
|Pork crackling, picked crab|
The casserole of Cornish cod cheeks with baby squid had a lovely depth of texture from the beans and meaty cod, what I really liked about the dish was that it was blessed with so much flavours but not rich or overly salty, it was magnificent. The fillet of sea bream was also wonderful, the skin was crispy and full in taste, and the meat itself was silky and cooked to perfection, together with the aubergine it created a lovely savoury taste with a hint of spiciness and freshness to it. The Le Piggy burger has to be one of my all time favourite burger, the pork patty was well seasoned, the pulled pork was moist, just the right level of smokiness in the streaky bacon, even the bun itself was done expertly, super soft and smooth. It was one hell of a special burger.

I was extremely impressed with the quality of the food from Piquet's bar menu (so good that I went there three times in a week), even without the offer, it was still extremely great value for money. For example, the piggy burger cost only £10 and it comes with chips, that is already a lot cheaper than all the trendy premium London burger joints and the quality was easily the next level. The cooking was very consistent throughout my multi visits, on top of that, the service was simply fabulous, very caring but kept it casual. Without a doubt I will be going back to try the food in its main restaurant in the near future, I am pretty confident Allan has something special to offer.
