Hello! I'm back, sorry for not blogging for a couple of weeks but we have been crazy busy with moving house, we're in a all settled now so hopefully blogging will resume as normal.
Last weekend I went along to The Plough which is a Beefeater restaurant in Shirley which is right around the corner from where we have just moved to. We were invited along because they have just had a nice new fancy refurb so we went to check it out.
The outside looked clean and inviting, he headed straight inside. We were greeted at the door straight away and taken to our table. The restaurant was really inviting, it was clean and tidy. We ordered some drinks first which came really quickly, I had a strawberry and lime cider and Clint had a Corona, and then we ordered our food.
The area where we were sitting was nice and quiet, there is a great selection of tables meaning you could go in big or small groups as I felt they could accommodate big numbers. The restaurant is family friendly making it ideal for birthday parties or just a family night out. They had some really big round tables which are great because you can see and chat to everyone.
I liked the art on the walls, they had lots of cow related pieces as they do specialise in Steak dishes, they do a great selection of steaks aswell as a Mixed Grill and other pub favourites. I also love the copper effect light fittings that you can see in my photos, I really wanted to ask where these were from!
We ordered a Flatbread to share for started which was brushed with Garlic and Parsley and this was amazing it was huge and was a really nice change. Then for mains I ordered a Burger which came with fries and Coleslaw and Clint ordered the Mixed Grill which was huge! Clint's meal came with triple cooked chips which were amazing. We were both absolutely stuffed by the end. We both really enjoyed our food, my burger was amazing! We managed to save a tiny space for pudding so we ordered the Bakewell Tart to share, this was served with custard. It was so good! We were both really impressed with the food, the selection and the prices are great, I'd go back as they have a great menu and i'd love to give the BBQ Chicken and Ribs ago and also The Beefeater sharing plater starter sounds amazing!
Overall we had a really lovely evening, we've both been really busy since moving into our flat so it was lovely to go for a nice drink and some dinner and chill out and have a nice catch up. The atmosphere was so nice, we felt really comfortable and relaxed. The service was amazing, everything was perfect with our order and nothing felt like too much trouble. I would definitely go back and I would recommend to our friends and family.

* We were invited to the Beefeater to see the newly refurbished restaurant, I was gifted a voucher so our meal and drinks were free. This review is honest and my own opinions and I haven't been paid for this review.
