There are certain things in life that were just made to go together. For example;
Peas and Carrots,
or Jack and Jill,
Even Gin and Tonic.
There things are just made for each other, as is Sunday & Lunch.
You can’t beat getting together with family or friends for a good Sunday Lunch. Last weekend that’s exactly what we did.
We were very kindly invited to The Vintage Inns newly refurbished Lambs Green Inn in Corfe Mullen to enjoy a lunch in the gorgeous new surroundings.
With 186 country pubs dotted across the UK Vintages Inns are never too far away their delicious menus are full of hearty favourites that the whole family will love and the cosy traditional feel sets the perfect atmosphere.
I love the Decor in the Lambs Green Inn, with a lovely open fire, cosy lighting and low beams throughout you really feel like your in the heart of the country side.
And the food, well lets just say it was just as incredible as it looks in the pics! Each dish full of flavour.
I started off with a little Gin and Tonic, it would be rude not to on a Sunday.. They have a great little cocktail menu with loads of combinations of your favourite drinks. It was so tough to decide but this raspberry gin won in the end for me!
For starters it was tomato soup for me. Personally I think tomato soup is such an under rated dish. When done right its is my favourite winter warmer. The Lambs Green Inn certainly got it right! I also sneaked a little taste of these garlicky baked mushrooms – definitely one to try – lovely!
For mains I was torn between the roast and the chicken pie. It came right down to the wire and I went pie. I Instantly felt regret as I watched the plates of roast dinners served to the table next to us. I needn’t of worried after a mouthful of my pie I knew I had mat the right choice – it was incredible. The mash was so full of flavour, carrots roasted to perfection. I think I would go for a roast next time just to try it thought you can’t beat a Sunday roast.
For desert we opted for a sharing board of mini puds. Which were a chocolate brownie, a crumble and custard, baked vanilla cheese cake and a creme brûlée! These puds were not so mini and after a starter and a main there was no way I had room for all of this.. or so I thought. After a taste of each I couldn’t stop! I couldn’t choose a favourite if I tried they were all so good! I would definitely recommend trying the sharing plater for pudding it’s great for a few people to share and plenty big enough!
All in all it was a fantastic afternoon and a great lunch. I can’t wait too go back!
