Looking for something yum for mum this Mother’s Day?

The Squirrel Pub gave us a preview of their Mother’s Day offering, a 3-course meal, delivered pre-prepared and good to go after a few quick and simple heating instructions. What’s not to love…?!
Well in all honesty not much! You’ll be able to see from the menu that it has been well constructed with options to suit all tastes, and you can choose 2 or 3 courses (depending on budget, or the ladyship’s appetite!)
We had, and can strongly recommend, the rich and creamy Wild Mushroom Soup with Truffle Oil (served with Sour Dough), and also sampled the Chicken and Chilli Croquettes, crispy on the outside and super tasty in the middle.
The Supreme of Chicken and Lamb Shoulder were our mains. I caught myself day dreaming I was in a restaurant – mainly because it looked so darn good and tasted such too! Each is paired with a jus that comes in plentiful supply and finishes the meal off a treat.
As for the puds they were delicious! The brownie’s sweetness was cut through by the tangy fruit coulis and the lemon posset was in a creamy world of its own.
Whether you live at home or are bubbled up with mum looking to convince her she’s raised a culinary whizz (our lips are sealed!) or are rocking the socially-distanced Mother’s Day this year, you can’t go wrong with these boxes.
What’s more, the containers are fab! We’ve washed them and they’re ready for reusing, upcycling at its best *high five* to that!
If you’re desperate to try the dishes but don’t ‘qualify’ due to not having kids… MUM’S THE WORD – your secret’s safe with us! Go on, treat yourself anyway!
The Squirrel delivers to a wide local radius; Chinnor to Great Missenden, Beaconsfield, Marlow and everywhere in between. Email your menu choice and delivery address to or send them a WhatsApp message on 07724419038.
