IS THERE anything worse than seeing your team steal defeat from the jaws of victory?
The way my beloved club left me feeling after a last-minute loss I’m not so sure.
Beer or pigging out were the only options, so it was off to the brightly decorated Wild Boar.
The Boss opted for the vegetable burger (£5.49) which was accompanied by chips, salad, coleslaw and relish.
The relish added a nice tang to the burger, which was packed full of vegetables and was really tasty.
I’m told the chips and salad complemented the dish well, but I was too busy with my own dish – steak pie (£6.79).
There’s no point in denying it, I’m a pie man, as the ever-expanding waistline will testify.
Smothered in Belhaven beer, the chunky pieces of meat did just the trick, while the gravy soaked up the puff pastry like a dream.
Along with the usual vegetables and chips, the dish helped erase all thoughts of that agonising defeat.
In an attempt to finally eat away the disappointment of the last-gasp calamity, we added a side portion of onion rings (£1.59).
A pleasant surprise, there was a real oniony taste, with the batter nice and crispy.
Along with a couple of drinks, the total bill came to £17.35.
Now, if only my team were on to a winner like this as well.
