Sunday landed. Pre -roast we started with the bundled cocktail which was an Ultimate Dry Martini; a 200ml bottle, so enough for two measures. Well balanced, made well, just as you'd expect it to be served in house. We even used a proper Martini glass and some preserved lemon, just to be fancy.
The above torturous delay was more than worth our patience. The ample wedge of 35 day dry aged rump roasted up like an absolute dream to blushing perfection, and the roster of the semi prepped sides was effortless to finish at home, even after a large Martini. Hawksmoor's 'Ultimate' roasties, super sweet roasted Chantenay carrots, properly buttered greens, a decadent cauli cheese, the all-important Yorkies, and some extra rich bone marrow gravy completed the ensemble.
