Mustard & Co
Crosby’s Mustard & Co is a neighbourhood bistro which succeeds in being both a heartwarming huddle of community – and a destination for exceptional food.
While locals drop in for coffee or a pint, those travelling from further afield will likely want to experience the lunch or dinner menu. It’s small: typically four starters, four mains and a handful of desserts – but you’ll probably be tempted by them all.
Ingredients are seasonal and locally sourced so dishes change frequently. Past highlights have included Formby asparagus with pickled shimeji and morel mushrooms, cured egg yolk and summer truffle, in a rich and creamy parmesan foam. And a beautifully pink lamb loin with pommes Anna, a lamb neck “bon bon”, plus fresh broad beans and fennel. Ewe cheese, yoghurt dressing, and a sweet, herby jus, kept every bite interesting.
Head chef Tom Caldwell is the man behind the pass – watch him and his French sous chef Romaine in the open kitchen. Thanks to a recent facelift Mustard & Co now has an inviting new interior including a sunny conservatory with a cocktail bar.
There’s a cracking selection of wines and all are available by the glass. Pairing suggestions for each dish encourage you to explore.
