New Brewers Fayre Autumn Menu

We were lucky enough to be invited to try out the new autumn menu at our local Brewers Fayre last week and we loved it.

Brewers Fayre offer a wide range of freshly prepared dishes that aren’t only fantastic value, but are absolutely delicious too. With their daytime Value offer (which runs from 12-6pm Monday –Friday) you can feed the whole family for less. You can get two starts for £2.50, two main meals for £10.99 and two deserts for £2.50.

Of course the main point of the review will be the food but it has to be said that the service was brilliant too. As soon as we were seated, one of the staff brought Isabella out some colouring to keep her entertained while dinner was cooking as well as a couple of balloons which helped entertain Benjamin too. All of the staff were lovely and more than happy to engage in the random conversation Isabella started up with them. 

 Moving on to the food, apart from saying it was all delicious, which it was, the attention to detail was lovely too. We had starters of loaded nachos and spicy potato dippers. (We asked if they could bring Isabella’s main meal out with the starters as she doesn’t like to eat food if it’s too hot.) The nachos had more than enough melted mozzarella & cheddar cheese, gooey cheese sauce, guacamole, salsa and cool sour cream for all of the tortilla chips and were enjoyed by all three of us. They were very flavoursome and crispy. The potato dippers weren’t very spicy at all but I’m not keen on spicy so this suited me perfectly. They too were really crispy and perfect for nibbling on. Benjamin had a side of raw veg and loved giving them all a good gnaw. 

For the main, I tried the slow cooked lamb shank with creamy mash, cabbage and mint gravy. It was so tender the meat was falling off the bone. For the money you pay, you get a lot of meat and it was super tasty too. I have had meals at more expensive restaurants where the lamb isn’t as nice. It was cooked perfectly and the mash, cabbage and mint gravy complimented it perfectly. The gravy wasn’t overpowering either which mint gravy can sometimes be. Ed had the full rack of BBQ ribs and said they were delicious. They were very meaty and full of flavour too. He would have liked a little more sauce, but that’s just personal preference. The chips were light and fluffy inside a crispy outer. Isabella had the crispy chicken, chips and peas and loved the popcorn style chicken bites as they were perfect for dipping. 

For pudding we shared the Cadbury chocolate chip cookie sundae. They were very tasty but I would have liked to have seen more ice cream and a little less cookie. It seemed that the cookie took up most of the pudding while the ice cream was plonked on top. It looked fantastic and the flavour was great but when ordering a sundae, I would have liked it to have been more ice cream with small cookie pieces crumbled in rather than whole cookies. 

This was all just over £50 including a few drinks which I think is excellent value for money. I will definitely be going back on those days you just feel you don’t fancy cooking. A perfect treat without the hefty price tag.
