Lunch

We needed to book a meal in a pub so went there yesterday to treat ourselves to lunch - 2 courses for £10 each. There should also have been a tea or coffee but we didn't want them.

Herewith our main - we chose the same - pulled pork nacho's with salad and coleslaw:
Followed by pudding - DB had banana fritters and salted caramel ice cream - they were rather like banana doughnuts - and I had chocolate tart with raspberry sorbet:
The main course was too big and I needed to leave some to make way for pudding. We have been in this pub before when people have been having this special. Neither of us think they cut the meals down in size just because they are on special offer. Even the waitress thought they were too large!

Anyhow, they were lovely. The nacho's were this time, not spicy which was good as it helped you taste the pork which was moist and succulent. There was hardly any pastry on the tart and the chocolate inside was very thick and tasty. You really needed the sorbet to cleanse your palate. We didn't need tea and only had cereals or toast later in the evening.

Have a lovely weekend everyone.

    1. We think they don't adjust the portion size because it is on offer.

  2. Your lunch looks very nice. I haven't eaten in a pub in quite a long time now so I am wondering if the portion is so big that you can not eat it all is it acceptable to ask for a "dog bag/takeaway container" or is that not done in pubs?

    1. Yes you can ask for a doggy bag. I ate both salads, the meat and some nachos. Only about 2 tablespoons were left, which were soggy, so I didn't mind leaving those.

  4. We now often order a single meal and share it between us. Serving sizes are getting bigger and bigger.

    1. We have done that with a pudding, not a main course, so far!

  5. I've not been able to eat a dessert when out for quite a while, I usually just have a black coffee while Lovely Hubby tucks into his.

    The exception was when we did the review when we ate out on our anniversary, there the meals were very cheap but were served carvery style so you could help yourself to just what you wanted.

    I have to admit to never having had Nachos .... they seem very popular at the moment. Your desserts look lovely :-)
