Sometimes, all you want is comfort food and when I was invited to try out the menu at Brewers Fayre, it was at the perfect time for chocolate and chips. You will most definitely have a branch of Brewers Fayre near you if you live in the UK. They are a friendly pub chain that can be found at motorway service station stops or attached to Premier Inn hotels.
I visited the newly-refurbished Brewers Fayre at Bellsiehill Farm, just off of the M8 between Glasgow and Edinburgh. It has a very relaxed family atmosphere; providing typical pub food that’s great quality. The staff are lovely and very helpful- you order your food at the bar, but they are always around to check you have everything you need and to get you anything you have forgotten.
I took my husband for an early evening dinner and everything was such great value. For our starters we had Sweet Chilli King Prawns (£4.99) and Loaded Nachos (£3.99). As is always the case with nachos as a starter, you can’t possibly finish them as you wouldn’t have room for anything else. The tempura batter on the prawns was light and crispy and the nachos had plenty of melted cheese- just how we like them.
For our main courses, I had Chicken & Chips (£9.29), a huge tasty roasted half chicken with chips and gravy. I also ordered a Giant Yorkshire Pudding (£1.49) on the side and they really did mean giant! My husband went for the 8oz Rump Steak (£11.99) with Creamy Mushroom Diane sauce (£0.99) and really enjoyed it. It came with crispy onion rings too.
We also had dessert too- who could refuse Oreo Cookie Pie? The Oreo Cookie Pie (£4.49) had a chocolate Oreo cookie crust, with a layer of thick caramel and topped with toffee mousse and Oreo pieces. Yum! We also had the Cadbury Chocolate Indulgence Sundae (£4.79) that had everything from brownie to icecream, chocolate sauce and cream in there.
