Feast used to be a bit of a family favourite of ours and, when I lived in London, a weekend trip to the island rarely didn’t include a trip to this Gorey restaurant. Since those days I have moved back to the island but Feast has also come under new management; what has this meant for my go to Gorey eatery?
The great news is that much of what made Feast so reliable has remained with a few changes to represent the new owners’ personal spin; there is an impressive new selection of gins, a new take on the decor and the addition of new menu options.
The famous pan of sizzling garlic prawns, gigantic stack of ribs, South African bunny chow and crispy salt and pepper squid remain but new dishes of beef carpaccio, duck breast and even a fishless fish and chips (a halloumi treat for the vegetarians) have been added. The portions remain as generous as ever and with a menu that spans ever popular classics as well more adventurous world influences it really does have something for everyone, making it an ideal spot for a family dinner or larger party.
Reliable tasty food in a relaxed and welcoming atmosphere, full bellies, affordable prices and a spot on one the island’s prettiest harbours; Feast may just have the recipe for success.
