Weavers Mill

Evening Telegraph (Late Extra Edition) - - EATING -

Go­ing out for a meal with a tod­dler can be stress­ful.

With our wee lass now two, we of­ten sac­ri­fice qual­ity for a bit of peace and head for eater­ies with ac­com­pa­ny­ing soft play ar­eas.

This was the case at our visit to Weavers Mill.

It was a nice night and we de­cided to take a short walk from our Dry­burgh home along to Cam­per­down Leisure Park.

Step­ping in­side is a blast from the past. Pre­vi­ously named Out­side Inn, the Weavers Mill still has the same fea­tures, in­clud­ing fake trees and a vil­lage square­type set­ting.

Al­though quirky, it doesn’t re­ally fol­low the theme of the cur­rent res­tau­rant and makes the place look a bit dingy. That aside though, I re­served full judg­ment for the food.

Pe­rus­ing the menu it had all the usual favourites and pub clas­sics. All happy with our choices, I headed to the bar to place the order.

There was quite a queue with a num­ber of trades­men, pre­sum­ably stay­ing at the ad­ja­cent Premier Inn, plac­ing in­di­vid­ual or­ders adding to the wait.

That aside, I or­dered my chicken fa­ji­tas and my part­ner’s messy Mex­i­can chicken (£7.99).

My fa­ji­tas came in at a very rea­son­able £6.99 in­clud­ing a soft drink (or an al­co­holic one for an ex­tra £1).

It’s worth not­ing this of­fer is only avail­able Mon­days to Thurs­days from 5pm.

With it be­ing a school night we opted for the soft op­tion so it was Diet Cokes to drink.

For the young one, it was a cheese and to­mato pizza, with the kids’ deal in­clud­ing a drink and dessert (£4.99).

We didn’t have too long to wait – but long enough for our daugh­ter to be fed up
