The Village Pub, Barnsley

Innovation doesn't always come in big, shiny packages.
It does come from a deep understanding of the product you are developing though. 
After a relaxing afternoon spent at Barnsley House Spa, we were directed to The Village Pub, just across the road, for dinner. No, not "a" village pub.
I have roamed enough around the Cotswolds, to know that local ingredients can always be trusted to produce magnificent meals. So, I was looking forward to this meal, as with any other meal around the area, but I wasn't expecting such interesting dishes.
The menu was brand new. We were greeted by the owner, who chatted to us about simple cocktails, fragrant with local aromas...Rose & Elderflower, Rhubarb & Raspberry.
We made ourselves comfortable and tried:
Venison tartar with Charcoal Mayonnaise and egg yolk.
Twice baked Cheddar cheese Soufflé.
Goats' cheese Pannacotta with Ginger Crumble and Beetroot. 
Roast lamb with fondant Potatoes and Mash - double trouble. 

Venison tartar and Charcoal mayonnaise - not for the fainthearted!

Leg of Lamb with a treat of two types of tatties - fondant and mash!

A cosy setting for the scrumptious Cheese Soufflé

The reason I'm telling you about this place is the Goat's cheese Pannacotta.
The idea that you can find innovative dishes in an un-assuming village pub, on a cold, February, Monday evening, gives me joy.
