Festive Menu at Table Table

I was asked if I’d like to try the festive menu at a Table Table restaurant, never the type to turn down a free lunch how could I resist. However, there is no such thing as a free lunch so here is my review.

Our closest Table Table restaurant was a gastro pub, the Ridgacre in West Bromwich. As the kids all had an inset day at school they were able to come with us so we had a lovely family day. The kids were so excited choosing their meals that the waitress taking our order, should have been in a real tiz, but she calmly wrote everything down and read it back to us. Then me and the hubby chose our food from the festive menu.
I chose Garlic and Herb Breaded Mushrooms with BBQ sauce, a Roast Turkey dinner (of course!) and Mince Pie Ice Cream. Hubs chose Tomato and Roasted Red Pepper Soup, Festive Steak and a Christmas Brownie.

Then the kids settled down with the activities provided, all based on ‘We’re Going On a Bear Hunt.’

Any parent knows that activities like this are a life saver while waiting for food.

The starters arrived fairly quickly. The kids had all chosen garlic bread starters which came with slices of cucumber. They said it was the best garlic bread ever!

My starter was delicious, the crispy coating on the mushrooms was delicately flavoured with garlic and herbs and the BBQ sauce was really tasty.

I had been really looking forward to my main course, I really love Christmas dinner and I could eat it all year. I didn’t even consider anything else on the menu, it was turkey dinner or nothing for me. I really wasn’t disappointed with my plate full of delight. As well as the roast turkey I was served stuffing, roast potatoes, carrots, sprouts, yorkshire pudding a pig in blanket, gravy and a side of cauliflower cheese. It was MASSIVE!

Roast Turkey Dinner

By  the time I’d wolfed down as much as I could, I wasn’t sure I could manage dessert, but I was intrigued as to what mince pie ice cream would be like. One of my favourite ice creams is rum and raisin and this dish was quite similar in texture having the fruit mixed in the ice cream. It was truly delicious, and I’m not ashamed to say I ate it all! I now know what I’ll be doing with my left over mincemeat after I’ve made all my mince pies, it will be going into my ice cream.

Hubby really enjoyed his meal too. He loved the Tomato and Roasted Red Pepper Soup which came served with a swirl of cream and brown bread. The he was served the Festive Steak main which was topped with mushrooms, bacon and a Malbec sauce and served with chips. It looked amazing and he loves the mushroom and sauce, but he did complain that there was some inedible gristle in his steak, however, it wasn’t bad enough to express his complaint to the restaurant. His Christmas Brownie dessert was served warm with Mince Pie Ice Cream and chocolate sauce. 
The festive menu at Table Table costs £12.49 for two courses and £16.49 for three. The portions are large and you will leave feeling well fed.
Other options include starters of Prawn Cocktail and Pork Pate, for mains you can also choose Grilled Salmon with a Festive Prawn Sauce, a Festive Burger or Red Pepper, Butternut Squash and Feta Tart.
Then for dessert you can also choose from Christmas Pudding or Lemon Cheesecake. 
The Children’s Festive menu,  which costs £6.99, consists of Roast Turkey Dinner, Christmas Pudding or Ice Cream. 
My three decided against the festive menu and went with the regular kids meals where there is lots to choose from. After their garlic bread starters my three chose different meals, Star had Chicken Poppers with chips and beans, Boo had Spaghetti Bolognese and the Little Man had Burger and chips. They all chose ice cream for dessert.
We give praise to our lovely waitress Samantha who really took care of us while we dined. She was especially talented in deciphering the requests of three excited children all calling out what they wanted at the same time. 
We had a really good dining experience and will definitely be returning in the future. I may even squeeze in another Christmas dinner, or is that just too greedy? 
What would you fancy from the menu, would you opt for the traditional Turkey dinner like me or go for something else?

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.
