Wednesday night is Mussels Night at the River House. For £15 you get a choice of four different mussels served with skinny chips, bread and butter and either a glass of white wine or a bottle of local ale. For over a year I have been trying to get a free Wednesday evening as I love mussels. Having finally got a free evening imagine my disappointment when a power cut the plunged the restaurant into darkness. Alan, the owner chef, was completely unperturbed and after grabbing a couple of big candles from the tables for the kitchen it was business as usual. The waitress busied herself getting candles out for all the dinners and sautéed potatoes were offered instead of the skinny chips. The mussels were delicious (I chose the red Thai sauce and my husband the tomato and basil). If mussels aren't your thing the normal menu is also available. Mussel Wednesday didn't run in the height of the summer last year so get along now for this superb offer. I hope my Wednesday evening class is cancelled again soon!
