Six Degrees North

Our Beer Man had visited Six Degrees North and awarded it the highest accolade of five stars. I’d popped in for a swift and delicious ale shortly after that but was still keen for a longer stay when I might see what they had to offer food wise. A dreary Tuesday provided the ideal opportunity.

I was joined on this escapade by regular guest questers Iain and Patrick. The Beer Man looked in towards the end of the evening along with our friend Chris.

It’s hard to argue with the Beer Man’s verdict on the beer. We sampled a rich and varied selection which was filled with fresh delights.

Croquettes

Croquettes

Food wise the menu draws strong influence from Belgium. There’s plenty of broad appeal and most dishes sounded enticing.

We started with a baked camembert, cheese croquettes and mussels. The main action was with the camembert which was delcious and served with impressively good bread. The croquettes and mussels were ordinary.

Stew

The main courses were a notch better. The Toulouse sausage looked really good. The carbonade – a beef stew – was simple and flavour-packed.

My burger was extremely good. The meat was really well-seasoned and deliciously succulent. The chips were less good although a decent effort at crisp skin-on fries.

Burger

So overall, there’s lots to love and admire at Six North. There were strengths and weaknesses to the food menu, but the burger was really impressive and there was a strong sense of a keen mind behind the creation of the menu. When visiting for beery excellence make sure to stay for a hearty and satisfying bite to eat, too.
