    I should imagine it would take more than a 30 set menu to receive sodomy?

    Heh. Live Oysters and 2 bottles of champers plus a box of posh Thorntons followed by a bit of Keystone in Fable 2(The mrs lost me 800 quid) after the kids had gone to bed.

    Highly reccomended

    99 problems and being ginger is one

    Oysters, there's another one I'll never understand. If they're an aphrodisiac, then I must be missing the sexual appeal of a pool of vomit.

    You actually only need about half the quanity of food they suggest that you order per person.

    If you are still hungry, then you always order more dishes, either trying new ones or going for the ones you liked the most again.

    Ah - you're not eating the right Oysters.

    They really are fab and used to be poor folks food until 100+ years ago.

    First try acclimatising yourself by drinking Oyster Stout (best Stout evah, etc)
    Then try them cooked - like in Steak and Oyster pie, or Oysters Forristiere.
    Then raw - but they have to be happy, with a few drips of lemon juice on them.

    By that time, the real question won't be do you like them, it'll be if you're a swollower or a chewer.

    Which is kind of appropriate for Valentines Day......

    Oyster stout doesn't actually have oysters in it, you know. In fact it's only called that because it's the traditional drink to have with oysters.

    LB, you really are a massive geek.

    That Porterhouse Stout really is something BTW..........

    Nooooo - that Porterhouse Stout is worth the trip to Dublin to taste and is infinately superior to Guinness.

    It doesn't taste of Oyster - it's just rich and creamy and lovely and...........

    /books ticket to Dublin

    'Fraid so - in fact I think I've committed Oyster Genocide over the course of the years.........

    Worse still is a big multi-layered platter of Fruit de Mer, where some of the stuff is still trying to escape (if it's a good one).

    Yup- but I was expecting Guinnes in Dublin to have some kind of transcendental quality. Unfortunately, other than the fact it take a very long tmie to pour them, it's just - well - a good pint of Guinness.

    Porterhouse Stouts (all three of them) FTW!

    Fine stuff. Even better hand pulled than out of the bottle.

    Guinness in Dublin does have a transcendental quality - I've never had a pint like it anywhere else.

    Really? I've been to the Guinness brewery and lots of the famous pubs in Dublin and it didn't seem to taste any different to a well-kept pint anywhere else.

    There's nothing unromantic about a pint of Guinness - with a heart fashioned on the head (rather than the usual lame 4-leaf clover).

    Absolutely nothing unromantic about Oysters - know what I'm sayin', etc......

    The Duke is 5 mins up the hill from me:

    here

    It's an unreconstructed boozer - and the nearby Holly Bush or White Bear are more cozy and welcoming - but it serves a fine pint of ESB & Chiswick, so hopefully it'll at least have the Porter in a bottle.
