On Tuesday 25th March 2014 Henning Wehn did a gig at the Betsey Trotwood pub. This was one of his rehearsal nights for his forthcoming Eins, Zwei, DIY tour and took place in the Assembly Room of the pub, a small, cosy little room which had a capacity of 50 for the night. As the German Comedy Ambassador, he was trying out new material and building the show. My wife and I both love Henning and he didn't dissapoint.
The doors to the Assembly Room were scheduled to open at 7:50 so we decided to arrive an hour or so early and have dinner and a pint (or two). The menu wasn't vast but it looked very interesting. One of the dshes was 'Award Winning Pie' mas, peas and gravy. I was toying with the idea of a big burger and chips but, when the nights pies were described, one was lamb and chorizo. My decision was made. The order was placed and about 15 minutes later dinner was served. The mash was smooth and tasty, the peas were perfectly cooked, the pie? Oh yes! Absolutley gorgeous. If you go to the Betsey and lamb and chorizo pie is on the menu, go for it- you won't be dissapointed. The only people dissapointed by the lamb and chorizo pie on Tuesday evening were those that asked for one after they had all gone.
A nice pub wih freindly staff, good food and a good comedian.
