With Valentine’s day looming we were recently invited to check out what our local Beefeater had to offer for this special day. With babysitters depleted we visited White Rock on a busy Friday night after hectic days at work and school with the kiddywinks happily in tow. With the restaurant already pretty chocca we were shown to our table and presented with menus promptly.
Imogen and Joseph were delighted with their Mr Men and Little Miss themed activity packs which kept them occupied whilst Tony and I browsed the menu. The children’s menu is great value at between £4.49 and £5.99 for a one, two or three course meal with squash but with but of them having tiny appetites we opted for a two course, main and of course pudding!
Tony and I also decided upon a two course affair, sadly skipping the starters which included lots ideal for sharing such as a whole baked Camembert, Potato Dippers with various delicious fillings and sharing platters. The menu is huge and meat lover Tony was in heaven, eventually opting for an 8oz sirloin. As a vegetarian I was thrilled to see the veggie options widened after our visit back in the Summer. As well as a pasta and risotto there is also the option of Enchiladas and the Veg-Out Burger, I went for the latter.
When ordering we were all given the option of swapping sides if we wanted and Tony and I were given the option of either skinny or triple cooked chips which can be plain or spicy. We decided to go for one of each so that we could get the best of both worlds and pinch from each others plates. We were also politely reminded when ordering that these were unlimited and if we wanted more all we had to do was ask!
Tony declared his steak “one of the best he’d eaten” saying it was cooked to perfection. My burger went down a treat as well but there certainly wasn’t room for any additional chips! Imogen chose Macaroni Cheese and Joseph went for the Mini Steak Burger both thoroughly enjoyed their meals finishing with empty plates ready for dessert!
For pudding both of the kiddywinks chose the Funny Face Sundae, a fun option with ice cream, ice cream cone, strawberry laces marshmallows and chocolate beans so you can create your very own ice cream. Joseph decided to turn his into Olaf with Imogen quickly following suit, it was a huge hit!
Still a little full from our main course, Tony and I decided to share one of Beefeater’s infamous ice cream sundaes. Large enough to share it was a delicious combination of ice creams and rich chocolate brownie topped with whipped cream, chocolate sauce and a wafer. A truly indulgent end to a wonderful meal.
We really enjoyed our meal at Beefeater and already can’t wait to go back. There’s lots on offer over Valentine’s weekend too with three courses for just £19.99 including those unlimited chips! Whether you manage to bag yourself a babysitter or not “Say it with Steak” this Valentine’s at Beefeater!
