Devils on Horseback? [Ldn]
I love Devils on Horseback and have heard about them being a "classic British bar snack" - and yet the only two places I've found them are The Hind's Head in Bray... and in NYC at the Spotted Pig.
Does anyone know of an upscale (or downscale!) pub in London that actually serves them??
The Grenadier in Knightsbridge (which if you haven't been is exquisite - almost too much so - oak panelled conversion of the old grenadier guards officers' mess down a mews, much beloved by monied locals and tourists alike) usually has both devils and angels on horseback. Call ahead to check. If you do go, please have the Bloody Mary. Classic. I was always rather partial to their 'sausage on a stick' bar snack too, which was exactly what it said on the tin...

No, they're not. Which is why you might struggle to find them.
You might find find them at an "event" where they could appear as a canape. They are also a classic "savoury" but it's many years since I last saw them on a dessert menu anywhere (last time I saw them - apart from a supermarket version - was on a P & O cruise around 1990). We should start a campaign to bring back savouries - great way to end a meal.
