Sometimes you just need good beer and simple food. We are at The Coach & Horses a pub run by the same family for 46 years. It has its own micro brewery and serves guest ales and straightforward pub food. It is a perfect break from an otherwise challenging day.
I decide to try a pint of Wood’s Shropshire Lad. Chestnut coloured, malty and fruity – oh brother, it really hits the spot. Rock is driving and misses out on all but a taste….
On the simple food front, Rock chooses the Ham, Egg and Chips. Really good ham, really good chips and a portion size that my Dad would have appreciated. I go for the Flat Iron Steak served with more really good chips, and a family of onion rings, mushrooms and tomato.
I love going to high-end restaurants but sometimes simple home-cooking is all you need!
