Wow, what a day Sunday was. The weather, oh the glorious weather! I was in heaven being a true sun worshipper through and through. Temperatures reached a high of 28°C, the sunglasses came out and I vowed to spend as much time outdoors as possible.
So after a packed morning of horse riding and swimming, I felt it was time for a well deserved pub lunch. We are blessed with so many beautiful local country pubs offering a range of wonderful food. This Sunday our choice was The New Inn at Kidmore End, it has been several years since I have been here but doing a quick reccy on-line I found their menu most pleasing and was thoroughly looking forward to our visit.
We arrived at 1.30pm, the peak of the lunchtime rush and the garden was understandably busy. We grabbed some drinks and placed our food order – baked Camembert to start and then the New Inn Burger for Paul and the roast beef baguette for me. The staff are wonderful, so friendly, professional and helpful. They said there would be a wait on the food as they were very busy and had several large tables, in fact we only waited 20 minutes for our starter to arrive which I thought was perfectly acceptable, especially having been to many restaurants half as busy waiting twice as long!
The food, well wow again! It was nothing short of amazing, fresh and so tasty. The baguette contained the most tender beef I think I have ever eaten, it melted in my mouth, Paul’s burger went down well too, and as for the Camembert we were both hastily dipping the fresh bread to get as much as possible of the melting gooey loveliness.
P.S I was meant to take more food porn photographs but I’m afraid I only remembered this half way through the mains! Oh well I suppose we’ll have to go back again…
