The Coach and Horses

Much has been said about the Coach & Horses Scotch egg. It’s mortifying that its taken me this long to try the staple from the Clerkenwell tavern. Some have even stated that their entry for the bar snack is amongst the best they’ve tasted. This visit was overdue.

The £3.95 Scotch egg arrived sliced in half, revealing the glowing, moist yolk and meaty rim. The breadcrumb casing was thinner than I’d expected – while remaining crispy – and broke away easily from the sausage meat like slipping off a jacket. It was served with English mustard, salt and pepper. The meat seemed slightly under-cooked however and had a rose-pink tinge that made me cautious. Peppering the snack only masked the problem and while it gave a piquant lift to the meat it eclipsed the egg.

Price: £3.95
Overall: 3/5
