My partner and I enjoyed a truly wonderful and special Valentines dinner here last night, as we did one year ago too!
If I was a betting girl I'd say the chef is the same as 1 year ago? The menu was excellent; we found it hard to choose what to have for each course as they all sounded so appealing! To start we chose the Chilli tempura lemon sole strips with homemade tartare sauce and the smoked chicken, grape and caramelised pecan salad. Both were really delicious, the sole strips had just the right amount of crispy batter, were lovely and hot with a tasty sauce. Very good smoked chicken and the star of the plate the caramelised pecans, wow! not had these before and certainly have been missing out, yummmmy!!
Now I was stuck on choosing between four mains! (how often does that happen :-S ) then finally plumped for the veal parmigiana with homemade tagliatelle and my partner chose the chicken breast with asparagus and black pepper boursin. Both were truly excellent and we were very pleased with our choices. As the same as last year both dishes came out piping hot and looked lovingly made by someone who cares.
Now dessert…being a romantic evening we shared a ‘Melting chocolate fondant pudding with chocolate dipped strawberries and chilled double cream’. OMG absolutely sublime, all was perfect and the choc dipped strawberries almost to die for..!
Big thank you to the excellent chef.
Service was excellent too, we think it was the same lady serving us as last year. Faultless.
The proprietor came around to each table and gave every lady a white rose; this is such a lovely, much appreciated touch and shows how much the management cares.
We think the Brewers has lots of charm and do hope to come back to eat again before Valentine’s Day 2014..!
