After the wordpress fiasco I am back to writing new post rather than rewriting ones that they deleted by accident do I hear a cheer!!! Yaaaaaaaaaaayyyyyyyyy  This post is about a restaurant that I visited recently with a lovely friend of mine that can always be called upon when I decide I simply must review a restaurant, It’s a hard job but someone has to do it.  The restaurant in its surrounding is quite picturesque although you can’t see that in the dark.

Set in beautiful surroundings this gastro pub is warm and inviting.  The staff too are friendly and helpful which is always useful.  The restaurant was clean and the bar area was already beginning to get busy even though we had arrived for an early dinner (6pm).  The seating area was nice and quiet, perfect for me after a long and noisy day with the children.  In fact it was almost as if we had booked out the restaurant as there was no one else in the dining section.   The atmosphere was relaxed and apparently later on whist we were dinning we were sitting next to a red haired gentleman who apparently was in Eastenders (no idea I don’t watch it myself).  I have heard this is a regular haunt for some footballers (again I wouldn’t recognise them if they came and spoke to me lol) and other celebrities can also be spotted due to the location.

The food didn’t take too long to arrive and the portions were good with reasonable prices.DSC00717 I had the squid to start with which was nice and crispy, not at all chewy and it wasn’t at all greasy.DSC00737My friend had the lamb koftas which were full of flavour and moist.DSC00731Then for the mains.

DSC00723My friend enjoyed the lobster roll.

DSC00746I opted for the King prawn, crab and chorizo linguine which was really nice especially with a touch of fresh black pepper.  The prawns were nice and juicy and not overcooked.

DSC00762We were then too full for dessert.  Hang on a second you didn’t believe that did you we all know that goes into a separate stomach lol!!!!

For dessert the warm treacle tart with whipped cream and lemon verbena syrup was a pleasant change from the norm and this finished the meal nicely.DSC00773I can’t fault the meal or service as all were good and as a result we will be visiting again, hopefully soon!
