Good Game


Once again the noble earl has donned the ancient feed-bag. I rather like the new Distiller's Arms Tartine restaurant  in Bushmills, County Antrim. I find the grub good. I was here about a month ago and determined that I'd return for some game.

Having had a Tanqueray snifter, I ordered the guinea fowl, mash, buttered greens and asparagus tips. And I was not disappointed. The guinea fowl is served on the bone. I found it not unlike chicken in flavour and texture.

I had some room for pudding, so Bushmills Cranachan was the order of the day, consisting of crushed meringue, toasted oats, wild berries, honey ice-cream and Bushmills whiskey.

I'm expecting to meet some pals for a boozy lunch at the Bushmills Inn tomorrow.

Sounds like a good spot ok, is it near the Inn ? Pleasant staff is always a good thing i find !!!

The Bushmills Inn is at one end of the village; the Tartine at the other. Easily within staggering distance ;-)
