Robust pub cooking à la McKellar

A once run-down corner pub in Kemp Town village has been given a makeover, with clean white walls and bright pink banquettes in the main dining area. Begin with smoked chicken croquette with miso mayo, or perhaps a beetroot bhaja with orange raita to get the taste buds fired up, or plump for blue cheese truffle mousse with charred pear and candied walnuts. Main courses are earthy and filling, so expect a flavoursome halibut bourguignon with game chips, or lamb, rosemary and goats’ cheese pie served with potatoes and black cabbage. To finish, go for oat junket, with caramelised banana, toffee sponge and candied pecans.
