So far, I have only popped in to Loxleys for a drink, otherwise known as a ‘drink and what are your bar snacks?’ More hopefully known as ‘a drink, what are your bar snacks and please please would you show me the dessert menu just in case.’
This proved an unusually rewarding experience, as the bar snack menu is top notch – none of this honey-roast-peanuts-or-quit nonsense here. Their bar snack menu features charcuterie, cheese, scotch egg, and even a salt-aged ribeye sandwich. We were thwarted.. We ordered olive and almonds with our wine. They were spot on.
All wines were enjoyable. I loved the familiar rounded smell of the Sauvignon bland, and my husband crowed that his red wine was the superior choice (so much so, I forget what it was). I dabbled with the 0%alcohol Sauvignon too and came to the conclusion that… it was very good that Loxley’s offered the option…
Fortunately, the waiter took the hint and ‘dropped’ the dessert menu, leading us to share an egg custard tart, with lemon verbena meringe and lemon purée. 45 minutes could not have been better spent.
