After the last few weeks and a cancelled All Inclusive holiday to be treated to a meal at Brewers Fayre, where someone else cooks and washes up sounded wonderful.
Brewers Fayre invited us to try their new Autumn menu, they have various special deals running, including pizza night, curry night, chicken of the world night, including a full menu with lots of yummy meals on.
We went on Friday, late afternoon and it was relatively quite. We were greeted by a friendly face and as it wasn’t busy we could choose where we wanted to sit, we actually had a section to ourselves, that was nice and peaceful.
The menu was very extensive. During the week they do a Daytime Value offer runs from 12 – 6pm Monday to Friday and means guests can enjoy two starters for £2.50, two mains for just £10.99* and two desserts for £2.50, so eating out doesn’t have to be limited to special occasions.
*Prices differ per site- please check your local site for confirmation.
New meals include the Ultimate Sausage And Mash, with a new, larger Yorkshire pudding – perfect for a pick me up on a cold Autumn day. A new Chicken and Ham Pie provides a hearty lunch or dinner, whilst curry lovers can choose from FOUR brand new curry options, including Chicken Balti, Beef Rendang and Vegetable or Chicken Biriyani. For dessert lovers, a new Family Sharer Dessert means the whole family can indulge together.
Ian chose the battered prawns with a sweet chilli dip
And I went for the pate.
Both came out nicely presented and tasted lovely, Ian actually commented they were the best battered prawns he’d had and you could tell they were freshly cooked, but if we had one criticism it was Ian’s could’ve done with a little salad or something just to life the dish.
For our mains, Ian chose the mixed grill
I opted for the New Yorker Burger, (the onion rings were from Ian’s meal not as standard on the burger meal.)
When I had ordered I asked for Ian’s with no peas (they are the food of the devil as far as he’s concerned) and was offered, beans or salad as an alternative which was great, I chose the salad for him, they also offered a sauce for which I chose peppercorn.
We ordered a couple of extras, button mushrooms and some cheesy garlic bread.
Other than the plates were cold and Ian’s eggs were just slightly over cooked (he likes a runny yolk) the food was cooked to perfection.
We washed it all down with a nice bottle of Merlot for Ian (he didn’t drink it all, we took the rest home with us) and a glass of refreshing Zinfandel for me.
We did, prior to our main meals look at the desserts and did have our eye on a couple, but after our mains, we simply didn’t have any space to fit one in. We were STUFFED to the brim.
Thank you Brewers Fayre for our lovely meal and the great service.
Check out all their deals on their website and decide for yourself, just how good the meals are at Brewers Fayre.
Also whilst I was settling the bill (yep we did overspend!) I was asked if I had a Bonus Club card, nope I hadn’t, so I was given a card and my points added. I’ve just registered the card and received 250 bonus points which is worth £2.50. You actually only need 500 points for a free bottle of wine, which will save you about £12. Now that’s a bonus! You get 5 points for every £1 spent.
