Sunday roast beef with Yorkshire pudding, potatoes and vegetables – £14.95
It was a week before my, James’ birthday and as we were jetting off to Oslo for the big day itself, we took the trip to Chester for the weekend. Starting things off with Afternoon Tea in Manchester on the Saturday, we spent the Sunday out in the Cheshire countryside to enjoy a proper pub lunch with the grandparents.
Deep fried cod in beer batter with chips, mushy peas and tartare sauce – £13.45
The Dysart Arms is your quintessential British village pub, complete with open fires, bookcases and most of all, fantastic food and drink. One thing is for certain when visiting a Brunning & Price restaurant (there are several around the North West), and that is you are going to leave with a very satisfied tummy. I sadly missed out on a starter knowing that a main course might leave just another room for a pudding, but I couldn’t even get that far today.
Scampi and chips in a basket with green salad and tartare sauce – £13.45
My fish pie was stunning, full of flavour with plenty of salmon, haddock and prawns, and fantastically presented. With Jessica going for the cod and chips and others going for the scampi, it was a table full of classic dishes, but done very, very well.
But it was the roast beef that drew most jealousy from other parts of the table. The impressive meat and Yorkshire pudding, rosemary roast potatoes and a big helping of vegetables will surely bring us back here again.
Fish pie – salmon, smoked haddock, prawns and egg with French style peas – £14.50
I couldn’t think of a better way to celebrate my birthday with the family, and I’m already looking forward to an inevitable return. On a summer’s day, the large back garden would be great for enjoying pints, and the village of Bunbury is perfect for afternoon walks. Fingers crossed I’ve got room for a sticky toffee pudding next time!
