As Christmas is drawing near, Beefeater has launched their Festive Menu to get everyone in the mood! Of course, you don’t always have to have Turkey, you can pick delicious salmon, succulent steaks and many more. There is also a Children’s Festive Menu too! Visit their website for your local Beefeater opening hours, make bookings and check for offers.
Yesterday, we went to our Ladybridge Beefeater for a lunch. The place is very easy to access with a lot of parking and next to shopping areas with shops like Next, Boots, Matalan, Mark & Spencer, John Lewis At Home, Toy R Us etc. It is situated next to Premier Inn and has free Wi-Fi. When we arrived, we were shown to our table quickly and both children were given Mr Men colouring sheets.
We love pub meals and an important factor for us is that they offer good value for money and a good choice of food for the children. I am very pleased that Beefeater has it all. The two courses meal is £15.99 or add an extra course for £19.49. As for children, it is £6.99.
For the starter, we both went for Classic Prawn Cocktails instead of the soup, mushroom or duck pate. It comes with fresh salad and two slices of bread & butter. It didn’t take long for us to finish the bowl clean!
As for the main, Mr C went for the Festive 10oz Rump Steak with a wild mushroom, brandy sauce, crispy onions and bacon. It is served with triple cooked chips. This was succulent, tender and really delicious.
I went for the grilled Salmon Fillet with prawn and lobster sauce. It is served with buttered potatoes and green beans. The salmon was well cooked and very juicy. It was a good piece of fish with a delicious, rich sauce. It didn’t take me long to finish it! I love that there other choices for everyone like the Red Pepper & Butternut Squash Tart, Roast Turkey with all the Trimmings and Double Steak Festive Burger.
Lastly, we both had the Caramel Apple Betty served with custard. The other choices are Christmas Brownie, Individual Christmas Pudding, Sundae with Mint Matchmakers® and ice cream. I enjoyed the pudding and it is a good portion.
As for the Children’s Festive Menu, it was limited to Roast Turkey with roast potatoes, peas, Yorkshire pudding, pig in a blanket and gravy for main. Individual Christmas Pudding served warm with custard or Vanilla ice cream with either chocolate or raspberry sauce.
The portions of the roast were big! We were quite shocked to see such a big plate which is great for older children to enjoy! The food was well cooked and delicious for both of my young children. Later, they went for ice cream for pudding. They both really loved it!
If you are still looking to book a place this December, why not pop down to your local Beefeater to try out their new Festive Menu. I would heartily recommend them to anyone. Don’t forget to sign up to their reward cards to collect points!
