This is a place that just keeps getting better and better. I liked it the first time I went, when they first opened, but the last few times I have been there it's just blown me away how far they have come as a restaurant.

They have just started serving cask-conditioned ale, though not regularly, so we went tonight to sample the cask-conditioned Stone Smoked Porter. Not only was the beer great, but it was nice to have the opportunity to have some cask-conditioned ale at someplace other than a bar.

We had a few different food items that were really good.

1 - Picnic Plate. This is two sausages, rustic wheat bread, two different cheeses, spicy mustard, tomatillo salsa, and red-wine marinated onions. Everything on this plate was awesome. We had it with a South African lamb-beef-pork sausage, and a Spanish-style pork sausage with golden raisins in it. The red-wine onions were totally amazing.

2 - Sausage Tacos. These were great - corn tortillas folded around grilled spicy (very spicy) chicken sausage, with shredded cabbage and salsa. Not the typical sausage presentation, but totally delicious. We will be getting these again.

3 - Braised pork belly. This was a special for the evening. The belly was braised, then grilled over open flame, and dressed with a spicy and peppery barbecue sauce. Accompanying were greens and avocado slices. Very decadent and rich, these were well worth the price.

Just had to rant a bit - it was such good stuff. Everyone should eat there, often!
