We decided to get the classic Salt & Pepper Wings. They wings’ exterior was crispy while the inside was still juicy. For the main, we had the Bedford Burger with an Angus beef patty, sunny side fried egg, sauteed mushrooms, onions, smoky bacon, apple wood smoked cheddar, house mayo, lettuce, tomato, red onion and pickles. This was definitely a six-napkin burger if not more. The egg was perfectly runny while the meat was moist and well-charred. The soft brioche bun was held in all of the ingredients. The side of fries were crispy and well-salted.
We also had the Steamed Mussels in a creamy white wine broth. They were fairly large and plump while cooked just enough. The modest amount of sauce was impactful where it was well-seasoned and lightly creamy. The wine was rather mild and had been completely cooked down. For a pub, this was completely unexpected, but impressive.
We also went for the Roast Poblano & Crab Dip featuring roasted poblano pepper, mascarpone cheese and crab served warm with fresh baguette and Parmesan crusted naan bread. The dip was thick, creamy and a bit salty. The lemon wedge helped brighten up the heaviness. Although hardly a real naan bread, it was cheesy and soft though. The Bacon Cheeseburger was unlike the Bedford Burger, as it overdone and dry. Bacon was crispy though. Consistency might be an issue, but if you hit it on the right day, Fort Pub offers up decent eats in Fort Langley.
