Rare meal out with Brewers Fayre

Tuesday, 22 September 2015
I enjoy eating out, but since having children it's become a bit of a rare occurrence, and one which takes lots of careful planning. Especially since having Isla, somehow going out for food with two is so much harder than food with one. Therefore, when we do go we tend to stick to places we know are family friendly. However another reason I tend not to go out for food in restaurants any more as my money mostly gets spent on the children, and we have just brought a new house, that's expensive you know. 
So when I was contacted to try out Brewers Fayre to try out their Two for £10 deal, I was intrigued. Normally these offers offer smaller sized portions or not a lot of choice. A hot meal for only £5 each surely this was too good to be true?
Jack was happily kept entertained with some colouring sheets and crayons which he really enjoyed. Jack chose his own meals, the kids menu I found great value with a wide variety of choices. You could enjoy one course for £3.99 and then each additional course is just 50p extra making a 3 course meal £4.99 all with good portion sizes. Jack had a garlic bread, sausage and mash and a strawberry sundae. What I like about the menu for children is each dish has a picture; Jack loves chosing his own food and finds it so much easier with a picture to choose. 

Then there was Mom and I and we took advantage of the Daytime Value meal which is available Monday to Friday 12noon until 6.30pm excluding bank holidays. We also added the additional starters for £2.50; but you can add deserts too for the same price of £2.50 making a three course meal for two just £15, £7.50 each for 3 courses is excellent value. 
I was concerned the Daytime Value menu would offer limited choice and small portion sizes. However as you just choose items off the main menu which have the casserole dish symbol next to them the portion sizes were no different. As for the choice there was plenty on offer. For starters I had breaded mushrooms whilst mum enjoyed spicy potato dippers. For mains we both enjoyed Smothered Chicken this was a lovely portion size and a very filling meal. We then both also enjoyed a pudding, but off the main menu as I really wanted an ice cream sundae. Mum enjoyed chocolate Prague cake, which I had a chocolate chip cookie sundae. 

We were really lucky in that we went at 4pm and the service was excellent, the food came out efficiently and was warm. The staff members were really friendly and engaged in conversation rather than just give your food and go. They were keen to make our experience there a truly enjoyable one. This restaurant and staff service was definitely much better than another Brewers Fayre we have visited previously and we would certainly go back again.  I would also choose to have the 2 for £10 deal again as I think we had excellent value for money with that and much less stressful than trying to cook an evening meal to please everyone. 

Please Note: We received a £50 voucher towards the cost of our meal however, all thoughts and opinions remain our own.
