Squirrel Review

Leave a Comment
Remember when I was raving about Hardies Supper Club last year? Well Chris has now taken over the evenings at the Uplands newbie, Squirrel. Expect a menu that is just as experimental and a gin cocktail list that is bound to be-gin your night the right way.

Seated in a snug corner, we started the evening with the soup appetiser, which was tomato and served in a shot glass, now this is my type of shot. 

After a quick slurp it was gone and I was ready the main event. I went for the 'Not Fish & Chips' - Forget your boring fish and chips, this one is a twist on the classic seaside favourite; Curried, battered halloumi, minted mushy peas (my highlight) and cherry salsa. All completely different flavours but surprisingly worked well together. I'm not a vegetarian but often opt for the veggie version when I'm out, I find it's a lot harder to flavour vegetarian food and Chris most certainly nailed this.

My date (my mum) went for the 8oz of Welsh rump steak which she had inhaled by the time I had finished Instagramming, so it must have been nice.

I was officially stuffed BUT one could never turn down Joe's Ice-cream and coffee in the form of an amazing affogato. After many failed attempts of trying to get my mum to boomerang the hot coffee pouring onto the ice-cream, we gave in and ate it ALL instead.

This was then washed down by a rather different G&T, which was made up of sloe gin, orange, cloves and tonic - It was berry delicious and like winter in a cup.

We went to Squirrel on a Friday evening but unfortunately due to the horizontal rain it was very quiet but I have high hopes for this place and am 100% behind local businesses who are passionate about food like this one. 

The menu changes monthly and with 3 courses for £19.95, what's not to love?

Thank you Chris and Squirrel for a wonderful evening, I will be back!
