Don't trot past if you are peckish
I have recently rediscovered a pub I visited about 10 years ago. Back then the food was good but I moved to a different area, so it was very nice to find that the food is now even better than it was. The pub is on a main road so is easy to find. The menu is now bigger; my family and I tried quite a variety of meals.They have a good deal on main courses, Monday to Friday all day, two for £8.49 - there are at least 10 different meals available for that price.
They have a good selection of starters, we tried the New Big Chicken Skewer with peanut satay; it was very tasty. The starters are from £1.99 to £3.79.
There are plenty of sides to choose from, with basic Bread and Butter at 79p, sometimes that is the perfect side order, to smothered chips - almost a meal itself - at £2.59.
They have a massive 40 main courses to choose from, with the favourites being Lasagne, British Beef and Ale Pie, Traditional Fish and Chips, Chicken Dishes to name a few.
They also offer Big Plate Specials like 10oz Hawaii Five-O Gammon for only £5.99, Big Cornish Cow Pie £7.99, and another 14 Big Plate Specials right up to the Ultimate BIG Sizzler for £13.99
Also on offer are a variety if burgers and curries, even lighter meals with less than 600 calories, so everyone is catered for.
My family and I tried the Big Burrito with BBQ Pulled Pork, Mexican rice and grated cheese; it was delicious. Big Cornish Cow Pie; very nice. Cheesy Leek and Potato Tart; divine.
Then we got to my favourite bit dessert. I had Toffee Apple Crumble with custard absolutely perfect, others we tried were the Eton Mess Raspberry Sundae and Warm Chocolate Brownie with sliced banana and toffee sauce both were divine.
