Bringing in Spring at Beefeater – review

We went to our local Beefeater Restaurant to see what was new.
I decided not to go in my wheelchair but wished I had because it was a fair trek to the restaurant from the car park on my crutches. The helpful staff opened up the emergency exit for me to make my journey a little shorter. We also found out that it was easier to exit through Premier Inn adjoining the restaurant, and the car be brought right outside. Good for remembering in the future because I’m sure we will visit again.

Our very helpful and friendly waitress, Natalie, showed us to our table and fetched our menus.She also gave some helpful suggestions on what to have; like the brand new Sticky Duck Wings for starters. I do love sticky duck.

For our main meals we reverted to the lunchtime menu as we don’t like to over fill ourselves at lunch time, although the chips are bottomless, which means you can have has many as you like.
I had fish and chips and so did our guests, my partner opted for the 10oz rump steak cooked exactly how he liked. He also had a lovely lime and chilli coating on his chips which was very tasty. Nothing was too much trouble for our waitress who also brought us all sorts of condiments and sauces.

The new spring menu had some exciting additions, I was definitely drawn to the Surf and Turf, an 8oz sirloin steak topped with king prawns, what a combination! If I were looking for a lighter alternative I’d have opted for the Chicken, Bacon and Avocado Salad or the Chargrilled Chicken and Mushroom Risotto, both of which sounded utterly delicious. As a lunchtime visitor you are given the option of ordering from either the lunch time or the evening menus.

When it came to desserts it was so difficult to choose. In the end I went for the Cookie Dough Sundae, my partner went for the Lemon Meringue and our guest went for the Salted Toffee Apple Crumble with custard. We all loved our desserts.

We had a lovely time at the restaurant, our waitress was delightful and we really enjoyed the food. We’d definitely recommend it to our friends, although according to their Facebook log-ins it looks like most of them are already regulars there.

We didn’t take the kids with us this time but we will in the future, the kids Mr Men and Little Miss menu looks a lot of fun and there are a lot of my kid’s favourites on their like pizza and poppin’ chicken.

With lunchtime meals starting from £4.99, evening meals starting from £12.49 for 2 courses and children’s meals starting from  £4.49, you get a good hearty meal for a reasonable price.

Disclosure: I was sent £50 towards my meals at Beefeater, my bill came to just over £53 for four people including two beers, one soft drink and a pot of tea. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

A little Note About Positive Reviews on Raisie Bay

A little Note About Positive Reviews on Raisie Bay

Some people only write reviews when things go wrong with products, which is good because it lets people know that there could be potential problems. I’ve also seen negative feedback with say things like, I had to return this item because the colour did not suit me…is this useful?

I write reviews on most items I buy because I like to give genuine feedback. If I have a genuine problem with a product I will write my review in the appropriate place.

I write reviews on my blog too, but they are mostly positive. Why? Because I only write reviews for the things I’ve loved. If I don’t love them I let the person who sent me them know with details why and then let them decided if they would rather me write a negative review or not write one at all. It’s always the latter.

This is my blog, my place and I’ll let you know about the things I love. If you want to find out what other people have hated about the product then you will need to look elsewhere.

My reviews may all be positive, but they are still genuine.
