It was a sandwich board. A smaller than usual one, shin height in fact, with what looked like a chalk drawing of a pig on it under the banner "We only use Kentish, home grown pork".
|A Bunker pig -- very nice indeed!|
This knowledge at that particular moment provided no joy as the damn thing hurt and made quite a clatter as it bounced along the road immediately after impact but later on when we were wondering where we could go for dinner I remembered it well. Actually it was the picture of the pig that I remembered most.
Deesons is proud of the fact they grow their own produce which then goes into their menu every day. The website has a neat video about the 'Bunker', their own small holding outside Canterbury (check the link -- http://www.deesonsrestaurant.co.uk/our-produce.php).
The menu isn't large but good and interesting. I had the seafood platter because I hadn't eaten whitebait for ages, Viv had the seared scallops but both of us of course just had to have the Bunker Pork -- a scrumptuous combination of belly, loin, pig's cheek and pulled pork bubble & squeak cake.
This was a veritable pork smorgasbord.
Very nice indeed.
