Today (of all days) we wanted a good meal out, somewhere where we've eaten before and where there was a relaxed atmosphere and great food. So, six of us went down to Josef's for Mothers Day. Only two of us are vegetarian, but because the menu has a good variety and we're always willing to try new food, it does not matter. Look out for the special board as there are normally 4 plus different things to try.
"Mother" (my wife) chose off the specials board a "Sunday roast" which was a nut roast with the full trimmings of yorky & roast veg etc. Myself, being a bit of a pub pie man, went for the mushroom & stilton pie. I have to say, liking a good homemade pie, I was not expecting a vegetarian pie to do much for me. I was wrong, the mushrooms were in a thick dark sauce with a good full on flavour; really good. All 6 of us chose 6 different main meals and swapped little fork-fulls between us, no disappointments. To follow we went the whole way with desserts. I had pear and cinnamon crumble, one of my sons went for bread, banana & butter pudding & some chose from the selection of cakes on offer. All the desserts and cakes tasted like they were proper homemade stuff. I also recommend the milk-shakes.
Don’t let some of the reviews put you off, there’s never been a problem with the loo’s when we’ve been, that doesn’t mean to say that some idiot hasn’t gone and ruined it for somebody else though. Service has never been a problem for us, we’ve always been attended to as needed. Don’t expect your food in an instant. I think it’s all cooked and prepared to order. Want it quicker? Then go to some national chain and get some microwaved rubbish.
All in all, a family run business, good food, and makes a good change to the normal. Mothers day meal a success, would recommended it to all.
P.S. Did you know that all profit goes to a charity they run for horse rescue ?
