Thackery’s Restaurant

I was very pleasantly surprised this week so much so that I must tell you all about the little gem of a restaurant. Hidden away in the Mercure Bush Hotel in Farnham, Thackery’s is where decadence lives around these parts. With a carpeted floor, dark mahogany tables and plush wallpaper it was like being invited to a friend’s stately home for dinner but with better food.

I invited a few friends out with me (yes, it seems I have finally made some) so that we/I could taste as many things as possible on the menu in one sitting. The best way to do this is not to order the same thing as everyone else and hope that they will share at least one bite of their food. This is how I choose my friends. For example M was thinking about ordering the gravadlax except this is what I wanted so subtly pointed out the delights of the shepherds pie croquettes which I wanted to try.

Next up: Calf’s Liver & coq au vin

I managed to sneak a taste of the light and tangy lemon meringue pie while M scoffed the other two. He tells me they were perfect and since once trained as a chef I’m inclined to believe him.
