Rabbit Faggots – The Bull @ Broughton, Skipton

I’d just like to say “the Rabbit Faggots at the Bull @ Broughton are really quite excellent”!

Following on from my previous post about Nigel Haworth’s latest pub enterprise we have just been for lunch and had excellent Wild Rabbit Faggots with Roast Courgette Purée, Tomato Juices £5.50 as a starter followed by the 100% Chargrilled Minced Hellifield Highland Beef Steak, English Muffin, Real Chips cooked in Dripping, Mustard Mayo, Tomato Relish and Pickles £9.75.

Other dishes tried in our luncheon party included the excellent Loose Birds Free-Range Chicken Coarse Liver Pâté, Golden Raisins, Cumberland Sauce, Toasted Homemade Bread £5.50

a very large plateful of Whitby Scampi in Beer Batter, Fresh Broad Beans and Peas (very green, seasonal, fresh and very delicious), Real Chips in Dripping, Lemon and Black Pepper Mayonnaise £14.50

and Limestone Country Beef Ribeye 8oz served with Real Chips cooked in Dripping, Garrick Farm Flat Mushroom,
Willowdene Watercress and Battered Onion Rings £17.50

The Bull always looks busy at opening times and if possible I would go late rather than early to avoid a wait, saying that the staff are very personable and attentive and it really is no hardship having a quick drink whilst waiting for your table, choose from the excellent local selection of hand pulled Timothy Taylors, Copper Dragon or Hetton Pale Ale along with Peroni on draught, a comprehensive wine list is also available.

    all sounds great – I was demo-ing cooking Rabbit at the CLA gamefair last weekend, and there was a lot of people interested in trying it.
