A million pounds has been spent renovating the old elephant pub and bubble rooms with the help of celeb chef Simon Rimmer, star of our fav hangover cure Sunday Brunch on channel 4. The newly revamped Elephant pub and bakehouse is “Best of British” themed and next door is The liberty Tavern which is an American grill with an exciting brunch menu filled with pancakes and other belly busting USA goodies.
Host with the most at The Elephant is the gorgeous Rich who heads the team and does it well. The staff are really friendly and they know the menu inside and out and were quick to recommend the sticky chipolatas with honey and mustard (sticky!) and the runny middled scotch egg with homemade brown sauce and the orchard pig pork pie (we love our pork what can we say) with nigella and tomato chutney which was mahoosive with the tastiest pastry ever. The food came quickly despite it being chocker on a Monday night and it was washed down even faster with a cocktail or 2 or 3, the table water came with watermelon in which was a nice touch.
You can really tell this menu is by a proper foodie and we were told the meat is all locally sourced and they get their cheese from the local cheese shop a few doors down. We devoured everything and moved onto our main courses which were 28 day, dry aged rib eye steak with gluten free peppercorn sauce and chips which kept Deena quiet for once. Sea bass nicoise salad with the tasty crispy skin and beautifully cooked. Also hickory smoked sausages with patatas bravas, chilli and sour cream which is Simons signature dish and his kids eat every week (adopt us please Simon) it was super spicy and we all fought over the last sausage but that wouldnt of been the first or the last time. Loved noshing on that sausage mmmm.
Rich gave us the tour of the lovely function room upstairs and the well stocked bar complete with craft beers and 15 types of gin. Get the special Elephant gin that donates 15% of its profits to elephant conservation and do your bit elephant lovers whilst getting trollied.
With weekly cheese & wine nights, afternoon tea and quiz nights the elephant pub and bakehouse is perfect for families old and young and Wooltons yummy mummys and grannies are gunna love it!
