The King’s Head in Beverley is a lovely, cosy, contemporary pub hotel with a restaurant in the corner of Saturday Market. The building itself is lovely, and there is a nice beer garden at the back which will be fab in the summer, with tables, parasols and festoon lights.
The bar and restaurant are light and modern with lots of comfortable seating and well thought out decor.
We visited for my friend’s birthday on a Thursday lunchtime. It was pleasantly busy without being crowded, and there is lots of space between the tables for comfort. We ordered from the regular menu, but they do some great lunchtime offers too, like two courses for £11 or three for 13.50.
They also have a 50% off selected steaks every Tuesday between now and the end of April (check their offers page) which brings the price of steaks to a complete bargain! On the day we visited they were also running a 2-4-1 pizza deal – the pizzas are made in a wood fired oven too so they will be excellent pizzas! Anyway, back to what we chose! For starters my friend chose the ‘warm feta cheese, spinach and pine nut tart, with a poached egg and chive hollandaise’.
While I plumped for the ‘pork and chorizo scotch egg, with roasted chorizo mayo and pea shoots.’ It was delicious – completely recommend it! I’d love to take home the chorizo mayo too!
For a main course my friend ordered the Beef shin ragu pie with a butter puff pastry, clotted cream mash, cavolo nero and red wine sauce. Clotted cream mash sounds incredibly decadent (and was very nice apparently). I have googled cavolo nero (so you don’t have to – no? Just me then?) and it’s the green kale type stuff!
There was no cavolo nero on my plate, just a lovely juicy charcoal oven rib-eye steak (my favourite)! Served with triple cooked chips,a smoked mushroom topped with tomato rarebit and watercress. Oh and a pepper sauce on the side!
Now, at this point, we were very full indeed, but it would be a shame not to try the puddings, so I chose the baked lemon curd cheesecake with clotted cream and custard sauce, which was lovely.
But I felt that my friend was the winner with this delicious looking gooey chocolate brownie, dark chocolate mousse with caramel sauce and honeycomb! She asked for a scoop of ice cream on the side too.
We finished the meal off with tea and coffee and a rest before we ventured back out onto the school run!
Our meal at The King’s Head in Beverley was delicious, the staff were lovely and the surroundings were very comfortable. It’s definitely worth a visit for the food, and the special offers make it very tempting on the purse strings too.
We were invited to visit and try the food, as always, all my opinions are my own.
