Here I had chicken pie and veg, wine,
cointreau and whiskey. I had a fine time. However all that aside the real piece d'resistance was the Figgy Pudding .
I actually had always thought that was another name for Christmas pudding. My colleagues were also surprised having been under the same illusion as I. In fact none of us had seen Figgy Pudding on a menu before. We bulk ordered. Figgy pudding times 6, please .
Looking on Wikipedia here, figgy pudding is mentioned as another name for Christmas Pudding! That aside, this pudding was quite different and lighter. There were definite figs inside. There are plenty of recipes online. I won't link a particular one here.

We were at The Castle in Angel. The food and service were fabulous. Do go if you are in the area, and try that Figgy Pudding (on the Xmas menu.)
