Bloom­ing lovely sea­side treat

Evening Express (City Final) - The Guide - - EATING OUT -

WITH the lighter evenings here, I had a real han­ker­ing to sit out in a beer gar­den. So we took the drive to Stone­haven. We were given a warm wel­come as we walked through the im­pres­sive Vic­to­rian build­ing. The back lounge had a re­ally homely and invit­ing feel, so we chose to eat in­side this time. We could see through to the pretty beer gar­den though. I or­dered spicy chicken fil­let (£10.95), with pota­toes, green beans and big chunks of car­rot and cour­gette. The suc­cu­lent chicken breast was coated in spices and herbs and topped with gar­lic but­ter. De­li­cious. My mate Scott chose a proper sea­side-town clas­sic – fil­let of had­dock with chips (£9.95). Dipped in a light and crispy beer bat­ter, with mushy peas and home­made tartare sauce, he knew it was the right choice. For dessert, I had the chocolate fudge cake (£4.95), served warm and with a good dol­lop of cream. Scott picked the ap­ple crum­ble (£4.95), which had plenty of crunchy top­ping and was drenched in warm, creamy cus­tard. With a cou­ple of drinks, the whole lot came to £36.40. We’ll def­i­nitely be back ... hope­fully to sit out­side.
