Our adoration of Pope Joan over the years could be turned into a novel of epic proportions. Of course, like many great stories, it is easy for our trusted friends to brush off the importance of each visit, or the level of dedication to our work.

There is dedication and then there is obsession. While the obsession to see what is going down at Pope Joan on a fortnightly basis has dulled, the dedication to visit at least once a season is still burning bright. Matt Wilkinson’s breakfast creations were the first that stunned me, and ever since I have seen some of them matched, but not bettered.

The ones I keep going back for include the crab omelette (although any omelette here is delicious) and anything with black pudding incorporated into the dish. Today, Catherine goes with the special omelette, and I order the black pudding with truffled polenta, cauliflower (including puree) and a fried egg. Both are up to the usual standard and we leave satisfied once again.
