Traditional Welsh faggots
While visiting Nash Point, stop at the Horseshoe Inn for traditional Welsh faggots. The service is really fast and the food is cheap and plenty. Faggots are a traditional dish in the UK, especially South and Mid Wales and the Midlands of England. It is made from meat off-cuts and offal, especially pork. A faggot is traditionally made from pig's heart, liver and fatty belly meat or bacon minced together, with herbs added for flavoring and sometimes bread crumbs. Faggots originated as a traditional cheap food of ordinary country people in Western England, particularly west Wiltshire. Their popularity spread from there, especially to South Wales in the mid-nineteenth century, when many agricultural workers left the land to work in the rapidly expanding industry and mines of that area. It tastes good but it's definitely a meal I would not have all the time. It's too rich to have a lot of it.
