Soup of the day: Spicy Chickpea

Restaurant/Pub: The Talbot, Cuckfield

We went out for dinner at a Sussex pub, and had to try the soup of the day, which was spicy chickpea.

The Talbot is a really nice pub, and they’ve recently spent quite a lot of money on renovations to include a proper restaurant – although we prefer to eat in the bar.


The soup tasted lovely, with delicate spices and flavour but it was very thick, with a consistency akin to baby food. That made it very filling, which would have been perfect if I hadn’t ordered a whopping great big fish and chips to follow it! With blended soups I like it when they leave some texture so it’s not all the same mush.

Very nice, probably more of a winter soup than something for July 🙂
