Pollen Street Social

Quite simply one of the best lunches I’ve had in a very long time. The only downfall was the lack of knowledge of our booking even after an email and telephone conversation.

Comfortable, social and not pretentious. Three things I enjoy when dining out. The service was knowledgeable with each dishes execution explained in detail with passion from all of the team. The maitre’d was pretty much made to order my entire meal as I wanted everything and didn’t think it looked right to have two main starters and two mains. Plus they just wouldn’t have all gone in. The portions are a good size and with all of the extra additions in-between each course it is hard enough to do three courses.

So here goes some food with some serious thought behind it…

Salted cod dip, Apple puree dip with something delicious (not too sure what it was)

For dessert we opted to share (I ate more) of the highly recommended

PBJ  Peanut parfait, cherry yuzu sorbet, nitro peanut - not your average peanut butter and jelly!

I don’t especially like any of the three common component s but this was superb.

All was accompanied by a fabulous bottle of Chablis 1er Cru Montmain, Domaine, Patte Loups.

Pollen Street Social is a must for lunch and in addition they also offer a well priced set lunch menu 2 courses 24.00 / 3 courses 27.50.

I would also just sit in the bar and try out their leg of Jamon and bar delights they have along with other delicious bar snacks.
