The Winchester N1 8NL

Date: Sunday 14th March, 2010

Choice: Angel
Who was there: Claire, Justin, Siobhan, Angel, Ellen, Jason & Heather.

Not far from the green in Angel, this 'Shabby Chic' pub was very welcoming and comfortable. With as Siobhan said "Bloody good Bloody Mary's" and a 2for1 on Roasts on a Sunday, and it was Mothers Day!
We had some starters: Nachos and the Oil & Vinegar with bread - the Nachos were one of the best Jason & Heather had ever had they said. Ellen wanted to find out the brand of Balsamic vinegar they used as she really enjoyed it.
On to the mains and the Beef was tough, overcooked. The horseradish was really strong and perfect. The Lamb was realy good, perfectly cooked and not fatty, the gravy was really good too. The Vegetarian option was woeful. Bland. It was a nice idea but did not deliver on the expectations. Jason said it tasted like wallpaper paste.
It was very odd there were no roast potatoes - a roast staple - just boiled ones, but the other veggies were good.
The desserts were hit and miss as well, the Apple & Mixed Berry Crumble was really tasty and came with a lovely creamy custard. The Baked Cheescake on the other hand was bland and very dry, the menu said it came with 'fresh fruit' - half a strawberry was on the plate. Quite disappointing.

Mains: £12.05 for 2 the Beef, Lamb, Chicken or Veggie Roast.
