The Swan at Shakespeare’s Globe, Bankside

Elwy Valley venison stew & celeriac mash

That plate probably looks like some kind of roast beef and potatoes with gravy on top, yeah? Well, on the menu here (21 New Globe Walk, 020-7928-9444), this thing was listed as a "venison stew," so I was expecting some kind of a thick soupy thing instead. But it still worked for me, especially with that deliciously aromatic sauce and tender local meat. It's too bad that they ran out of the grilled calves liver though. Even if I haven't been a big fan of that organ (outside of ducks, anyway), I was hoping to try something different.
