At “The Rose” ~


Collage, May 17, 2017

A veritable cabinet of curiosities: bust of Queen Victoria, pointing finger, round convex mirror, and blackboard listing bar food options, including (third on the list, scotch eggs). What are scotch eggs? A curiosity in themselves! Wikipedia defines a scotch egg thusly: “a hard-boiled egg wrapped in sausage meat, coated in bread crumbs and baked or deep-fried.” Read more about all kinds of versions of them at this site here, which also notes, “one can judge a pub’s level of culinary ambition by its attitude to scotch eggs.” We didn’t try The Rose’s scotch eggs so couldn’t vouch for its culinary ambitions.
