Ian was given the opportunity to take me out to dinner this week after a suggestion he made at work actually got used.
After plenty of thought and recommendations, we finally decided on the De Parys Hotel.
I am so glad we did!!
We’ve just had a wonderful evening eating food we normally wouldn’t eat, drink we normally wouldn’t drink and a bill we normally wouldn’t pay!!
We wanted something different to our usual steakhouse type menu and that’s exactly what we got.
I decided on the slow cooked belly pork with black pudding mash and it was amazing!!
Ian who is not quite so adventurous went with a mouth watering fillet steak.
He downed his with a few pints of stout while I demolished a bottle of New Zealand Pinot Grigot!
We finally ended up spending on just the two of us, more than we would normally spend as a family of five but had no guilty feelings about it at all!!
It was lovely!
I would highly recommend the place to anyone although we went on a mid week evening, not sure how the experience would be on a busy weekend.
Right, time to curl up with a movie.
