Tracey, do you know if The Joyce serves "black pudding"? I fondly remember this wonderful sausage from my youth. We called it blood pudding because, well, that's exactly what it was made from. Writing about it now, I can almost smell it. Black pudding was the perfect complement to baked beans on Saturday night.

Here is the link for the Pub Menu, which doesn't have Blood Pudding listed. Sorry. I'm fairly certain that had it been there, we would not have partaken in the opportunity. My memories of blood pudding were more in the line of , "You're not serious, are you? I'm not eating that." That being said, I would absolutely return to the Joyce for an ice cold beer and a stab at the daily menu, breakfast perhaps, when the staff and kitchen are not begotten with Irish revelers in celebration of the patron saint. It has a great hometown pub atmosphere. http://thejoycefamilypub.net/menumain.html
