On Sunday we were invited to sample the new Sunday Lunch menu at the Curfew pub. Just a ten minute stroll from our house, this was a perfect way to start our lazy Sunday. The menu goes live from this Sunday, the 19th September and we would suggest you book as the food was really good!
We sat upstairs in the tastefully refurbished dining room, lovely and bright with large windows and a cooling breeze - a lovely spot to relax. We opted for the Whitebait with dill mayonaise (£5.95) which was a generous portion. Piping hot and crisp, these were delicious. The Breaded wedges of brie with sweet chilli dip (£6.25) were oozy (is that a word) and creamy - a real treat to start the meal.
For the main course, my husband chose the Sunday Best (£15.95) - Chicken, Beef and Pork, and I went for the Pork (£13.95). Both were served with roast potatoes, honey roasted parsnips, seasonal veg, stuffing, Yorkshire puddings and a delicious red wine gravy. The meat was tender and moist on both dishes, crispy roast potatoes (nothing worse than a soggy roastie), piping hot veg, and most importantly - a jug of extra gravy! I adore lashings of gravy so this made my day!
Although the dessert menu was extremely tempting, we were just too full to do it justice, so on this occasion we had to pass. We did see them however, and they looked very good!
In summary, we had a really impressive meal at the Curfew. Roast dinner out always makes me nervous as my husband cooks the perfect roast, but I have to say, this was spot on. Really good value for money, the portions are large, and everything was tasty and well presented. The staff were efficient, polite and we felt looked after, which is always nice. I would feel confident recommending to eat here, and as I said at the start of this review, you might well need to book a table as I think the Curfew's roast will be very popular!
