A bowlful of ripe Sicilian olives are pitted against home-grown alternatives such as Red Lion’s own smoked haddock and salmon fishcakes, and the chef’s pork pâté topped with a salad garnish. The menu goes across the globe again with an Asian-inspired appetiser of crispy duck pancakes served in a fragrant hoisin sauce.
