The other night I was kindly invited along to a local Beefeater in Cannock to have a cheeky preview of the up and coming Christmas menu which launches 1st December right up until the 30th so you can get all your festive grub in the festive period! There's also a Christmas Day Menu, Boxing Day Menu and New Year's Eve Menu available. What's more, Beefeater is committed to serving up great quality food at competitive value to ensure a festive feast doesn't have to break the bank.
"Beefeater is ringing in the festive season with a brand new menu that includes all the trimmings, in addition to some delicious alternatives for those looking to break away from the traditional Turkey and Brussels sprouts. With something to suit all tastes."
I decided to take along the main foodie in the family, my dad. He opted for the Crispy Flat Cap Mushrooms/Breaded Mushrooms for his starter. He really liked these, it was the perfect starter before the main. He's also a huge fan of a mushroom or two! I opted for The Pulled Beef & Yorkshire Pud slices. Oh my god I cannot stop thinking about the starter. The pulled beef was literally mouthwatering. All I've thought about since is the texture and the amazing sweet sauce it was covered in. Oh and I'm also a fan of a Yorkshire pud, who isn't?
Then for mains, we both went for The Festive Double Steak Burger. While I found the burger full of flavour, and a range of tastes and beautiful cooked beef. my dad actually found the burger to be a little too much. The burger contained cranberry sauce, salad, cheese and bacon! While I was far too happy to have all of my favourites all in one burger. With a side of Coleslaw and Chips to each side the meal was topped off nicely. (with a free refill on chips, hello, yes please!)
Dessert time! after having a quick break after the beat of a burger main, we were then served with our desserts. I went for the Orange match maker sundae! I'm always a lover of a sundae and a little bit of orange thrown in. However I was far too full to finish the sundae after the main that I ended up the dessert. However it tasted amazing I just wish I had more room to fit it in! My dad went for Chocolate Melt in the Middle pudding This looked amazing and was a lot smaller so I probably could of managed this a lot better. He really enjoyed the dessert it was the perfect size after the meal for him and enough sweetness for him.
At the restaurant we had table service with our waitress Emily, she was lovely and always on hand if we had any problems! or even if we just wanted another drink! While the rest of the staff at the restaurant were also on hand always popping over to make sure we were okay and enjoying the food to the entrance and departure. This was my first visit to a Beefeater and I'm defiantly going to be going back, even if it is just for the pulled beef.
