The final night of our 2016 East Anglian epic adventure. What an adventure it has been. We have enjoyed lots of great food and drink, some lovely cycle rides and found plenty of new pubs to relax in.
Much like last night, we tried to get in to The Nelson again, but it was full. We split into two groups, to wait for tables in The Sole Bay Inn and The Nelson, harnessing the power of the internet to communicate when we had found one.
As luck would have it, we came up trumps with a table in The Sole Bay Inn, and settled in. Hazel & Matt returned from round the corner and we walked the two steps to the bar to order. I don’t need to tell you that The Sole Bay Inn is an Adnams pub do I?
First up, a pint of Jack Brand Ease Up IPA, a decent enough session IPA, good hoppy notes, some malt, a little sweetness. It’s better on keg than it is out of the bottle.
Triple pork nirvana was at stake again today, I have passed a few times this week due to lots of lovely fish to choose from, but today, the lure of the pulled pork burger was too strong to resist. It turned out to be a good call, a decent portion of pulled pork, not too sweet, served in a good roll with chips and a decent home made coleslaw. Good work team! Mrs MOFAD had the same, Hazel had some lovely ribs and Matt went for gammon. All good for our final meal out this week.
This needed some more Adnams accompaniment, sticking with Jack Brand I went for the Mosaic Pale Ale which I also had earlier in the week. Hints of lemon, peach, mango and pine and a nice little blast of mosaic hops.
The end of the holiday should be marked with a pudding, and another tasty chocolate treat awaited here, dark and dense with a scoop of ice cream on the side.
A fantastic end to a fantastic holiday. A great little pub, with food served 12-9pm. You can’t reserve tables, but it is well worth the wait if you have time for one to become free. A lovely cosy pub, a friendly atmosphere and very definitely MOFAD approved!
