Last month, the Sunday after my mum’s birthday in fact, my parents treated me to Sunday lunch at the newly reopened Golden Farm pub, it’s local to us with a rustic decor – farm animal art work, a plough hanging from the ceiling and a hare statue which is part of the Cotswold Hare trail (I’ll have to remember to take some photos next time).
For lunch they were offering a main course for £9.95 with a choice of beef, chicken, pork, lamb. I had the chicken and my parents both had the pork, all the dishes were served with gravy, vegetables, Yorkshire puddings, roast potatoes and stuffing, which all came in serving dishes so you could help yourself and have as much (or as little) as you like. I thought it was a nice touch.
The chicken was well cooked and I really it enjoyed, it’s very easy to overcook a chicken and I’ve had some bad experiences elsewhere where it’s been too chewy.
I felt the roast potatoes were too greasy but that’s a personal preference, I love crispy ones! The other sides were delicious especially the Yorkshire puddings.
For dessert we had a choice of chocolate fudge cake, rocky road slice, rhubarb and strawberry cheesecake, rich chocolate mouse for £4 each. I chose the chocolate mousse which was made with dark chocolate and served with cream or ice cream and my parents both had the cheesecake, again this was served with either cream or ice cream.
My dessert was gorgeous and I loved the little touch of the spoon being outlined on the plate with coco powder.
My parents both enjoyed the cheesecake but dad said he preferred the Double Decker cheesecake Ryan and I made him for his birthday in July… He might be baised. 😉
Overall we really enjoyed our meal and will definitely be going back there in the future.
