Edgars Inn at Ainslie. Lunch review

By johnboy - 17 April 2013 11

lunch

Barcham and I lunched at Edgars in Ainslie today.

A touch north of $50 secured two pints of Squire’s Golden ale a charcuterie plate and some wings.

So it’s a bit more pricey than chowing down for Burmese curry. On the other hand you don’t put your used plates into a garbage bin at Edgar’s either.

The beer garden, it should be noted, remains a joy post fortification.

Wikipedia has this to say about Charcuterie: the branch of cooking devoted to prepared meat products, such as bacon, ham, sausage, terrines, galantines, pâtés, and confit, primarily from pork.

In practice around town it seems to be French for “ploughman’s lunch”.

The highlight of this particular plate is the confit of duck leg (delicious as one would expect) but the olives, pickles, onion jam, ham, blue cheese, and salami (nothing special about the salami) all combined very pleasantly.

If you like your meats, and a pint, for lunch then it’s definitely a goer.

That is not very good for you, you know, apart from the beer, and whatever the green stuff may be. Because green stuff is always healthy.

The last time I was there (and it will be the last time) it felt like I was having an overpriced cider and tapas plate behind the blast walls in the Green Zone in Bagdad

Soylent green isn’t healthy for some.

My only two experiences there have been poor. Dirty beer lines or bad beer on the first occasion and second occasion I took my wife and girls for lunch. We sat down at a table 5 minutes before lunch starts and was very rudely told lunch doesnot start for 5 more minutes. We quickly left and headed to George.

There’s obviously some QC issues because the last time I went I ordered a pizza and it was doughy in the middle. Made my lunch partner feel a little unwell.

Beer was fine though.

The reviewed sites would probably appreciate a listed address (or coordinates) for those Flash-deficient.

My favourite Canberra watering hole. Food is not brilliant but does the job. Staff are friendly and the atmosphere is great. Indeed every suburb should have one.
