Good Hearty Food at Wayside Inn

Been to Wayside Inn a few times for dinner, I like the casual feel and the food is hearty and delicious.  Was there a few weeks ago, and here’s what we ate!

I had the “Glenloth free range chicken with roast accompaniments“.   It was beautifully roasted chicken, lots of sauce and mash potatoes.   It was so delicious!

My boyfriend had the “Rotissoire du jour – Suckling Pig“.  Beautifully cooked and caramelised suckling pig with veges and a light sauce.  Suckling PigFor sides, we had “brussels sprouts and bacon“.  Sprouts were cooked perfectly (had a nice bite to it, not soggy) and of course bacon makes everything instantly better.

I really like Wayside Inn for casual no fuss dining, highly recommend it!  Go forth and dine!

Builders Arms Hotel…. *drool*

Builders Arms Hotel is amazing!  Went there for date night a few weeks ago as I was craving roast, and was totally blown away by how good the food was.

First up, we had crispy pork and school prawns.  Pieces of pork crackling and crispy school prawns in a dish together – who woulda thunk?  It was great.


The prawn omelette, aioli and smoked paprika was a fluffy, soft and tasty pan of goodness.  Topped with a dollop of aioli.  Excellent stuff!

As mentioned earlier, I was craving roast so I had to have the slow roast beef, with hasselback potatoes.  The beef is hidden under the greens in the pic below, but let me assure you, it was roasted perfection.IMG_0754My dearest fiance had ‘The George’ NY strip, 250g, fried egg and gentleman’s relish and we shared a side of chips.   Whilst I didn’t taste the steak, no doubt the food was exceedingly well presented and judging by the silence that followed as soon as the plate hit the table, I’m going out on a limb to say it was tasty.

Oh dear, as I write this post, I’m trying to think of the next time I’ll get to visit Builders Arms.  I’d definitely get the prawns and the omelette.  I’m already drooling thinking about this…
