Review on The Tiger Inn
The seventeenth-century Tiger Inn at Stowting is a country-pub success story that was saved from extinction by a syndicate of Stowting locals, who clubbed together and bought the place simply because they didn't want to lose their favourite watering hole.
On the food front, the current owners continue to put their faith in an extensive daily-changing blackboard based on fresh produce. Lunch is essentially pub grub (steak and ale pie, sausages and mash, lasagne plus salads and baguettes), but the evening menu promises more ambitious restaurant-style dishes. Typical choices might include baked avocado with Mozzarella and crabmeat, roast duck with cider and blackcurrant sauce, and fillet of salmon with watercress and horseradish sauce.
There also a few vegetarian options (roasted peppers stuffed with spinach, tomatoes and goats' cheese, for example), and a separate board of homespun desserts ranging from jam roly-poly to bread-and-butter pudding. On Sundays, all-day traditional roasts take centre stage. Backing up the food is a very decent wine list, plus a choice of up to six real ales - all kept in tip-top condition.
