Welcome to a new series on Sal’s Kitchen! The Great Bath Feast is Bath’s annual celebration of eating and drinking and, unsurprisingly, the highlight of my year. To celebrate this year’s Feast, I’m going to be posting bite-sized reviews of some of the best meals available as part of the Great Bath Feast’s Tenner Treat, a collection of brilliant £10 offers from different Bath restaurants.
Where is it? 5 Bladud Buildings, The Paragon, click here for the website.
What’s on offer? A trio of gourmet sausages with mash and gravy, plus a glass of wine or a soft drink.
Is it any good? Bangers and mash is basically the perfect comfort food, especially as the weather gets cold and more autumnal, so I had high hopes for this one and I’m glad to say it didn’t disappoint. The Bath Blue sausage was my particular favourite – just enough blue cheese to give it a real flavour hit without being overwhelming. Extra marks for using a fabulous local delicacy too.
Why this place? These chaps know what they’re about when it comes to sausages. Forget the usual supermarket bangers, filled out with bread – Clifton Sausage bangers are in a whole different league. They’re made in Weston Super Mare by specialist butchers Havercrofts, to The Clifton Sausage’s recipes, and they’re pretty special.
Marks out of 10? 8. The dish was really good, and it’s great value to get a drink too, but I’m taking off points because the amount of mash was a little bit stingy. Definitely recommend this one though.
