Dinner at Sportsman!

Dinner at Sportsman!

We’ve wanted to visit the Sportsman  at Seasalter for ages but never managed to plan ahead and book for their tasting menu which they only serve on weekdays. It’s only a 1 hr drive from London and although close to the lovely and more well known Whitstable in Kent, it’s quite remote and isolated which makes its quality, consistency over the years and achievements (1 Michelin star since 2009 and one of the most characteristic examples of what a gastropub should be). I doubt if I would ever dare to enter this place if I just happened to see it while passing by, but this is a destination restaurant and all diners have booked their slot well in advance. Inside the atmosphere is relaxed and quiet, not much different to the local pub of any small village. But the food is way better!

This must be the only reservation that I haven’t cancelled after being stuck in the car for 1 hour (due to a broken car in the tunnel) and it was totally worth it. My favourite dishes of this memorable meal were the crab with carrot and hollandaise, the raw venison, the fried breadcrumbed lamb with the mint and honey sauce, and the meringue ice cream.

About the author

This blog aims to become our archive for the few moments in life that are worth remembering. A collection of pictures that represent our "fancy world" or how we would like the real world to be. It will include what we are passionate about; the concept and our favourites might change frequently but the subjects will remain the same; fashion, food, travels, having a good time. Hopefully, in a few years we'll be looking back at those moments of happiness and still feel excited about the choices we made at that point in time, although there are no guarantees :) We hope that the glimpses of our fancy world will help you seek more fancy moments in your life!
