Menu

The Ghastly Garden

~

Arrival Drink

 

Sting & Tonic

Gin, nettle cordial and tonic. Garnished with nettles and thistles.

or

Tingling Tincture

Refreshing nettle-based tonic served with a threatening garnish.

 

Canapés

 

Sky Rodent Goujons

Commonly known as the London Rat, pieces of Mr Twit’s freshly shot pigeon are seasoned and battered to create delectable bite-sized pieces of the notorious vermin. Served with a dipping bloater paste.

 

Burnt Bangers

Left in the oven by Mrs Twit for slightly too long, these glazed chipolatas are served straight from the oven coated in a smothering of smoky black poppy seeds.

 

Bloodied Hearts

Freshly removed chickens’ hearts, practically still beating, are slow-cooked in the luke-warm water left at the end of Mrs Twit’s monthly bath. Finished in a Bloody Mary glaze.

  

Festering Clutch

Always on the lookout for any food going spare, Mr Twit has a habit of eating rotten eggs that have slowly cooked in the heat of the compost heap. Now you can try his favourite snack…

 

No Squawking

Attracting birds to kill is easy with this delicious birdfeeder snack of Marmite-glazed roast nuts.

 

Mouldy Delight

Much like Mrs Twit’s varicose veins, this delicious cheese is brimming with blue veins of mould almost as potent as her own scent, served with fresh pieces of delightful pineapple.

 

Hug Tight Glue Soup

A glow-in-the-dark, gelatinous and sticky stock. Lip-smackingly awful.

 

Aural Scratchings

Crispy slices of pigs’ ears.

 

Writhing Spaghetti

Suspicious-looking mounds of spaghetti seasoned with spicy worm salt.

The Dining Room

~

Main Course

 

Mr Twit’s Bird Pie

Slowly braised turkey and pheasant pie garnished with the claws of a thousand fowl. 

 

Six-legged ‘Slaw

Rainbow slaw with a lurking insect surprise.

 

Muddied Spuds

Boiled new potatoes with edible dirt and the odd juvenile rat’s skull.

 

Accompaniments

  

Mr Twit’s Fiery Rage Mustard

Almost as hot as his temper.

 

Parsley Liquor

A disturbingly slimey sauce that just won’t stop bubbling.

 

Pudding

 

Terrible Trifle

Sponge fingers soaked in sassafras syrup, caffeinated lime cordial jelly topped with lemon posset, all garnished with Mrs Twit’s potpourri made of dried roses, berries, strawberry powder and flaked almonds. The effect will linger on… 

 

Libations

St. John ‘Pic St Loup’ Rouge Bag-in-box 2013

Made by Jean-Benoit high in the Languedoc, it is a cabernet syrah blend, boasting soft tannins, dark red fruit and the herbal notes of the limestone garrigue. Mr Twit cleans his boots with this and they came up a treat…

or

St. John ‘Pic St Loup’ Blanc Bag-in-box 2014

Sauvignon blanc with a steadying touch of roussanne, marsanne and viognier. Green fruit skin, fresh and clean, with lovely acidity to get your taste buds on the move. Finishing with the garrigue, thyme and lavender. This is what Mrs Twit uses to freshen her breath…

or

Foot ‘n’ Mouth Squeezings

Grapes crushed by the callused feet of our horrible hosts.


Mr and Mrs Twit's Upside Down Cocktail Cavern

 

Big Dead Tree & Sticky Glue Bellini 

£10 

Prosecco served with a small tube of peach or cherry Hug Tight Glue, garnished with a twig from the big dead tree. You can squeeze the sticky glue on to the big dead tree twig (liquorice root) to eat, or use the twig to stir it into the drink. 

 

Mrs. Twit’s Unusual Spritz 

£8 

Hendrick’s Gin, Aperol, nettle vermouth, prosecco and soda – her favourite afternoon eye-opener (she also uses it as a glass eye cleaner!) 

 

The Terrible Shrinks

£8 

This vodka soda is flavoured with berries and oranges brought from foreign climes by the Roly-Poly Bird, garnished with an aromatic helium balloon. Mr Twit’s efforts to send Mrs Twit skyward failed miserably: perhaps you’ll have better luck. 

 

The Upside-Down Monkey Circus 

£8 

Tropical, cruel but cool. From the slushy machine comes a libation comprising juggled bananas, monkey nuts, golden rum, sugar and lime.

 

Dark & Stormy Muggle-Wump 

£8 

Monkey around with Muggle-Wump’s favourite dark spiced rum (hazelnut, chestnut, almond, tonka bean and vanilla) topped with ginger beer and fresh lime. 

 

Mr. Twit’s Beard Old Fashioned 

£8 

All of Mr Twit’s favourite foods – clingy scraps of sardine, Stilton and cornflakes – pulled straight from his beard, stirred with Scotch. 

 

Roly-Poly Berry & Chocolate Martini 

£8 

Exotic Marula berry and raspberry are mixed with chocolate in this creamy treat – a favourite from the Roly-Poly Bird’s African jungle home! 

 

Mr. Twit’s Dirty Negroni 

£8 

Campari, Sweet Vermouth and wormy Mezcal, lovingly stirred with Mr. Twit’s filthy fingers. 

 

Mrs. Twit’s Special Milk  

£8 

Vodka, coffee liqueur, white chocolate and a dubious source of ‘milk’ mark this cocktail out as something special. 

 

Mr Twit’s Monkey Cage Oil & Nettle Wine  

£6 

Take pleasure in lubricating your mouth with Mr Twit’s cage oil. A dark mixture of black raspberry and blackcurrant liqueur served with nettle wine. Don’t worry, the sting will stop... eventually!
