Review on Pig's Ear

Deep-fried pigs' ears with ravigote sauce is top of the bill in this Chelsea gastro pub, which has created quite a stir since it came on the scene. On the ground floor is the traditional, all-comers bar, upstairs is a cosy wood-panelled Blue Room filled with mirrors and odd paraphernalia. You can eat where you like.

If the eponymous porcine appendages aren't to your taste, the menu also offers an astonishingly varied range of eclectic dishes with big flavours and plenty of gusto. Treat yourself to roast bone marrow with dandelion, parsley and toast, fillet of cod with steamed mussels and cider or Barbary duck breast with roast Jerusalem artichokes, curly kale and figs.

Alternatively - if you feel like splashing out - indulge on some Sevruga caviar with a couple of glasses of Champagne, and satisfy any sweet cravings with treacle-poached pears and drop scones or pumpkin and orange Bakewell tart with bitter chocolate. Pig's Ear Ale from the Uley Brewery is on draught and the French-biased wine list offers an impressive choice, with lots by the glass.
