My culinary adventures of my new home town continue. Plus, who doesn’t love a good Sunday dinner? I’m British, it’s practically the law.
The Duke of Wellington describes itself as a cosy pub with a roaring fire and hearty grub. And they’re not wrong. The pub is light and airy but with a very welcoming atmosphere, and then there’s that roaring fire we mentioned.
So, just a 15-minute drive from my house, the Duke of Wellington served up an amazing Sunday lunch that I’ll definitely be back to try again soon.
We ordered from the Sunday Menu both choosing two courses for £10.50, which considering the amount of food you get, is excellent value for money. Not being able to decide between the beef, pork or chicken, I opted for the trio of roasts (£1 supplement). I don’t know what I enjoyed more, the beef, pork, chicken or the fantastic roast potatoes.
There was plenty of food and my other half helped me out by eating one of my Yorkshire puddings so I would have room for dessert.
Speaking of dessert, I ordered the apple pie and custard (I always do. Expect many pictures of apple pie on this blog). Again, it was delicious, with loads of apple filling and a generous jug of custard. Scott had the profiteroles and they were polished off so quickly I didn’t even get a chance to taste them, so a resounding thumbs up there.
Overall, we had a great afternoon. The staff were lovely, chatting to Alex as they went past (at 6 months old he can get away with staring at people) and were very attentive. The food was excellent value for money and there was a lot of it.
