Simple can be brilliant.
We’ve been away for the weekend, regular MOFAD companion Pete had organised a 40th birthday celebration nearby and we were staying at a camping barn, some of us camping, some staying in the bunk rooms inside. The minister was on cooking duty over the weekend – fry ups on both mornings and a beef casserole on Saturday night. Easy stuff when catering for ten people.
For Sunday lunch we decided to stop off at this pub on the way home. We were going to come here for lunch yesterday but the incessant rain put paid to that plan. Today we had sunshine, so sat out on the patio round the side of the pub. Lots of other people did that too, with loads of bikers and cyclists around, but we found a table ok, and got served in good time.
A very simple lunch – the “chickwich”. First and foremost, it’s good to see a pub serving a full menu on a Sunday and not just hiding behind a Sunday roast. As we approach the summer months, something lighter on a Sunday is usually preferable.
The “chickwich” is very straightforward. A whole grilled chicken breast, on a soft white roll, with lettuce leaves and mayonnaise, with some very tasty chips on the side. Nothing flash, just good ingredients.
And all served on a plate! No slates, no “leaves”. Just proper, honest grub. Simple and delicious, this was an absolutely perfect lunch for today. Very tasty.
Mrs MOFAD had a “standard” chicken sandwich, which was also very nice and came with a side salad and some crisps. A slice of pineapple and a slice of melon in the salad was a little something different.
Lovely village pub, you should definitely go the next time you are in the area. We’ll certainly be back! MOFAD approved!
