I took my son and my niece to Blades for lunch to celebrate my 72nd birthday. It was our first visit there. We were immediately made very welcome by the proprietor. I had a green salad with artichokes, sundried tomatoes and parmesan shavings in a very piquant dressing and then calf's liver and bacon served with a generous dish of assorted al dente vegetables. My niece had chicken breast with a mushroom and cream sauce served with chips and my son went for the soup of the day, followed by mushroom risotto. The food was served with fresh crusty bread and butter. We all agreed that our meals were very tasty and well cooked and the portions were generous. After eating, I had an excellent filter coffee. Imagine my surprise when the owner and the cook then appeared bearing a chocolate cake with lighted candles and sang happy birthday to me! They must have heard the young ones wishing me happy birthday at the start of the meal, when we were raising our glasses to each other. I though this was a very kind gesture on the part of the restaurant.
We were too full by then to eat cake but they very kindly parcelled some up for us to take home. All in all a very pleasant dining experience and I can't wait to go there again.
