I was joined on this quest by Rachel, who had previously quested at nearby Clerk’s Bar. We sat in the window at a potentially good people-watching spot, which soon became the outlook point across a scene of rapidly deteriorating weather.Reverie’s reputation is as a fine purveyor of mussels, with portions ranging from ½ kilo pots for one, to 2 kilo sharer pots. We opted for the small size, given it was lunchtime, and both started with their soup of the day, which was an intriguing sounding mushroom, spinach and tarragon.
The friendly waiter was soon delivering our soup, which had a lovely aroma of tarragon about it. The soup itself was very good indeed, with a rough and rustic texture matched to an elegantly creamy flavour. It was accomplished stuff.
So overall, I very much enjoyed my trip to Reverie and was glad to finally visit. The simple pub interior is welcoming and the service warmly matches that. The food is well-prepared and packed with flavour. I’d be happy to return and sample further dishes from their menu.
