We were recently invited to go and try out the new Spring menu in our local Beefeater which for us is The Boathouse at Castle Marina Park, we hadn't been there before so we were really looking forward to checking it out and trying some of the yummy meals on the new menu.
The first thing we noticed when we arrived was how nice the interior decor was, everywhere looked very clean and modern and it had a lovely cosy atmosphere. We were seated very quickly in a nice, spacious booth and were left to browse over the new menu and choose what we would like to order.
The kids were spoilt for choice with the children's menu, there was so much to choose from, they eventually opted for Popin Chicken with chips and peas which also came with garlic bread. It was £5.49 for a kids meal, a drink and a dessert which I think is really good value and they really enjoyed their food.
There are lots of delicious new dishes to try on the new Spring menu like the Surf & Turf which is an 8oz Sirloin steak topped with garlic king prawns or the Chicken Escalope which is breaded chicken brushed with garlic and topped with crispy streaky bacon, melted Monterey Jack cheese and a fried egg.
I decided to go for the Chicken Bacon & Avocado Burger which came with skinny fries and coleslaw and it was so good, my only complaint was there wasn't enough avocado but other than that it was delicious.
Ian chose the Beefeater Mixed Grill which included a flat iron steak, chicken breast, gammon steak and pork sausages served with half a slow roasted tomato and mushroom, crispy bear battered onion rings, fried egg and triple cooked chips. He really enjoyed it and couldn't believe how much he got all for only £15.99.
We were all pretty full after our mains but we couldn't leave without trying out some of the desserts so the kids chose Ice cream & Cookies which they loved.
I chose the Warm Brownie with Cookie Dough Ice Cream and it was amazing, really yummy and just the right amount.
Ian decided on the Salted Toffee Apple Crumble and it was huge, it came with custard and Ian really enjoyed it but it was too much for him to finish.
We had a really great time at The Boathouse Beefeater and will definitely be eating there again in the future now we know how nice it is, the staff were very friendly and attentive and the prices are really reasonable.
Go and try out the new Spring menu at your local Beefeater, you won't regret it.
