Back in the Shire (Staffordshire) lies an English hearty pub which I can confidentally say all foodies out there would LOVE.
A perfect setting with flavoursome and wholesome home-cooked food 😍
As you can see, the portion sizes are very generous here which is always a plus.
I then tried out the seafood special of the day, which was drenched in a tomato & asparagus sauce. This was another successful dish filled with perfectly cooked prawns & mussels, even though the presentation wasn’t all that…Now on to my most recent visit, and this week was all about burgers, brownies & white wine spritzers 👌🍷
The Porterhouse burger with bacon and melted cheddar – say no more…
Again, nothing to complain about here and a very fulfilling portion size to keep us foodies happy! Served perfectly medium-rare 👌
On to the puddings and the “boozy cherries” were something I was unsure about at first, but I took the gamble and it paid off in the end – really moist and chocolatey and the booziness of the cherries provided a great balance to the dish.
I also found the presentation of the food had improved since my last visit – apart from the appearance of my friend’s smoked fish pie with smoked haddock below, it tasted amazing! Very cheesy and a great amount of seafood including smoked trout in there.
If in the area, I’d definitely recommend paying this place a visit 😍🍔🍷👌
