We fear change!
No, actually we don’t. We like most change. Some is not always required, but that doesn’t stop it from happening. Why am I banging on about change?
Well, because the Lakes Bar & Bistro has not changed in the last year. We visited in June 2015, and had a nice meal. We visited tonight, and had exactly the same nice meal. Let’s look at the evidence.
First the Shipyard Pale Ale. Still made by Marston’s (not the American beer it pretends to be), but still a pleasant pint. 2015 on the left, 2016 on the right.
Next, the main course, a chicken breast, stuffed with smoked applewood cheese and sun-dried tomatoes, then wrapped in parma ham and panko breadcrumbs, served with a small wild rocket salad, and spicy potato wedges and garlic mayonnaise. This was very nice indeed, juicy chicken, and good flavours from the stuffing. Slightly different presentation this year, once again, 2015 on the left, 2016 on the right.
Here’s 2016 in fuller glory.
The main difference this year was pudding, an end of holiday treat for Mrs MOFAD with this tasty creme brulee accompanied by some tart summer fruits.
The Lakes Bar & Bistro is clearly still MOFAD approved, and is still perfect if you’re looking for a quiet meal out in Keswick. Why change a winning formula?
