The White Hart, Fyfield – Wednesday Dinner Club – (Nov 1,8,15,22 and 29) is hugely popular and often sells out, mainly due to its great pricing £49 for two with a bottle of wine) and its weekly changing set menu. Tonight that consists of roasted butternut squash wedges with a blue cheese crumble, Bucksum leaves, candied hazelnuts and a hazelnut vinaigrette. For mains it’s good old fish and chips with garden peas and tartare sauce, and millionaire shortbread with salted caramel ice cream for pud. If you miss tonight there’s always next week! BOOK HERE
