Hello my lovelies!
We have arrived back safely from Dubai.
However, it seems that I have been carrying a chest infection for a while without actually realising it.
It has knocked me for six and I spent last week doing my best to stay upright. Anyway, a course of antibiotics has been prescribed and I am sure I am in the recovery phase.
But hey, given my recent history, what do I know?!?!
Over the weekend, himself decided that a jaunt away from The Glade was in order.
The youngest was safely deposited at a sleepover and we went to The Three Stags, in Bebington for dinner.
The pub was really busy but they managed to find us a table.
We chose the baked Camembert for starters.
It was served with chutney, rocket and toast.
Now this is quite a favourite in our house, so there was quite a lot to live up to.
It was nice, but I felt it was a bit unadventurous.
A nice nutty or rye bread would have been a welcome change, nevertheless we made short work of it and the chutney was very nice.
For his main course, himself chose The Ultimately Mixed Grill.
Good grief, for a veggie like me, it looked as though half a butcher’s shop was loaded onto his plate.
There was a beef steak, a gammon steak, a chicken breast, two sausages, two fried eggs, a pile of onion rings, mushrooms, peas and chips.
The verdict: ‘It was lovely’ said himself, high praise indeed!
A pasta dish with mushrooms and goat’s cheese was the offering that I chose.
I found the sauce was a bit watery and cold which was disappointing.
However, the meat dishes are obviously the show stopper.
Given that I hadn’t eaten much of the pasta dish, I obviously had room for a dessert.
It was an easy choice for me when I saw that Creme Brûlée was on the menu.
I have to say this gorgeous pud did not disappoint.
It was a huge portion too, therefore I didn’t mind sharing a nibble or two with the carnivore.
We enjoyed our trip to The Three Stags and I would definitely give it a whirl if you are in the area, they even allow children in now (side eye to the previous bosses).
However, I would say that it is definitely geared more towards meat eaters, there is a limited choice on the menu for vegetarians and it was very standard with disappointing execution.
The atmosphere was great though and dessert was amazing
Have a lovely day!
