On my return to England in 2014 I hit up a few new cities and towns including Christchurch in Dorset and the famous Windsor and Eton. In Windsor, I hunted down a special cosy hotel for the night and I stayed at the delightful Sir Christopher Wren 4 Star Hotel. I’ve written about my fantastic stay there already but not yet the feast of a meal I had for dinner. It’s nice every now and then to have a good steak, vegetables and a pint. A diet I actually grew up on – well at least once a week for my Sunday roasts. Here’s what I had.
For starter I chose a salad. I went for Wren’s Summer Green Vegetable Salad which contained avocado puree, grilled asparagus, mange tout and cucumber ribbons, mixed baby leaves and vinaigrette. Cost £6.50.
There’s a full bar available and my friend Jill chose red wine, while I went for a good old pint of Guinness. We were on a big catch up that night – I hadn’t seen Jill in a few years – we used to work together in PJs Irish Pub in Parramatta – well she was my boss!
For a main I opted for the 7ounce beef fillet which comes with Horseradish Sweet Potato Gratin, parsnip and parsley mousseline potatoes, pan roasted pearl onions in a port wine juice. I had it cooked medium-well. Cost £29.00.
This was without doubt one of the nicest meals I have head on my recent travels and even better that it was with Jill and in the Thameside Restaurant – such a great setting and you’re in the Queen’s Town. When the Union flag is up at night – it means the Queen is at home and the night I was there she was. So I got to stay in the same town as the Queen for a night on my travels. How gloriously exquisite.
Here are the details on booking a meal at the Sir Christopher Wren Hotel and Spa, treat yourself, go on! With Mother’s Day and Easter coming up there are some great offers on!
