It was Liam's birthday yesterday, so to celebrate we had booked a table in The Parish Oven in Thorpe Salvin. A pub we had only just discovered but had heard good reviews about the food, so we thought we would give it a go.
I will start firstly by saying that the pub is very well fitted out, very clean and very welcoming. Even on a wet, cold and miserable June Tuesday evening we received a very warm welcome from the staff and were quickly seated and enjoying a drink of our choice.
The food however did not deliver as expected. My fish and chunky chips were really very good. Sadly the same can not be said for Liam's Ribeye steak which was firstly not cooked how he asked for it, it was far too rare for him, but secondly was for the most part inedible and chewy. Even Sydney has a struggle with it!
Will we visit again? We will certainly give it another try. Every pub can suffer from a less than perfect batch of steaks. We will perhaps try other items on the menu though.
