A good local watering hole and a place to eat seriously good food, The Tilbury's kitchen is driven by quality, starting with carefully-sourced produce. A pub menu lists the likes of cottage pie or fish and chips with mushy peas and tartare sauce. Alternatively, move up a gear with a starter of chicken terrine with bacon jam and sweetcorn purée, followed by a robust plate of pork belly and loin with ham and squeak balls, bacon greens and apple sauce, or pan-fried turbot paired with girolles, baby onions, kale and mash. Pudding could be a cylinder of white chocolate parfait coated with pistachio crumbs and served with olive oil cake.
