185 Watling St. Pub & Kitchen

You’re probably thinking, what on EARTH are you talking about Amy?

On Tuesday 7th June myself, Tess and Dan (two very good friends from work) decided to visit a restaurant called 185 Watling Street in Towcester. I had heard so much about this restaurant and really wanted to try it for myself so we booked a table for 7pm.

Upon arrival the exterior of the building is a stunning converted white house.

The first thing I noticed when I walked in was how they have captured the art of old and new.

We were shown to a table by a lovely waiter and began making the EXTREMELY hard decision of what to eat. To start we all shared some Artisan Breads & Olives, Smoked Humus with Baby Vegetables and Ham Hock & Mustard Fritters. The Breads where all hand-made in-house and flavours included Tomato Bread, Cheese Bread and Olive Bread. Three words – wow, amazing, delicious.

For mains I decided on the special of Honey Roasted Duck Breast, Beetroot Mash, Savoy Cabbage and Bacon. Me being me decided to swap the Beetroot Mash for Bacon crushed Potatoes.  (Purely because I don’t like Beetroot). Tess panicked whilst the waitress was standing there and ordered exactly the same as me and Dan went for Roast Cornish Lamb Strip Loin, Potato & Spinach Terrine, Broad Beans, Rosemary Jus. My Duck was cooked to perfection and all of the flavours complimented each other so well.

Of course we HAD to have dessert. I opted for another special of Belgium White Chocolate Mousse, Summer Berry compote & fresh Summer Berries. After being peer pressured into it, Tess went for the Lemon Meringue Mess & Raspberry Sherbet and Dan went for the Milk Chocolate & Pecan Brownie with Popcorn Ice-cream. My White chocolate Mousse was absolutely incredible, not to sickly and the summer berries toned the ‘chocolatey’ taste down so if you weren’t a MASSIVE chocaholic like me, you wouldn’t find it hard to finish.

Our whole meal was a 10/10 for me with the service to match. After dinner we sat at the bar to digest before heading home.
A massive thanks to everyone at 185 Watling Street for an amazing evening, we will certainly be back!
