Giddy Goose at the ‘Thack

The Queen o’ t’ owd Thatch, South Milford, is a place on my radar PURELY because it’s my local, does the best food on plates…puts drinks in hand and smiles on faces..and has become the hub of my social life in this delightful North Yorkshire village.

I go as often as I can, not just because Annie runs the brilliant book club, but Kirsty the chef changes the menu monthly and Adam knows just how to brew a pot of green tea for me, and every Thursday all cocktails are 2 for 1.

And how better to catch up with a dear friend on menu changing day and give Kirsty some eagerly awaited feedback.

My choice for starter was potted seafood, with spiced butter and farmhouse toast – I hear that the winkles took some patient extracting from their tiny shells, but they were delicious when potted in butter!

For mains I had duck breast and nugget, with butternut squash and damson sauce, a really clever and tasty combination.

And I did have a sip of a great dry, crisp white wine, a classic style Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc named aptly ‘Giddy Goose’.

I popped back for lunch to take some more photos and tried another new addition to the menu, Chicken Kiev, so succulent.

The ‘Thack, as it is known locally, is a great community pub, with a cleverly designed garden for summer time lingering and also has a cosy stove to huddle around in the winter.

Thack at Xmas

I can instantly picture it at Christmas; real trees, festoon lighting, carols, hot toddies and amazing food… you get the idea and will just have to go yourself if you can!
