Adega Velha translates as 'Old Winery' and on entering you find yourself in an old-fashioned bar with a polished stone floor and huge earthenware wine jars. Behind this are the rooms that comprise the restaurant area with antique furniture and a collection of old radio sets filling a whole wall. The menu is limited and, as might be expected in an inland area, focuses on meat based dishes. We started our dinner with a small local cheese and a plate of sliced charcuterie and then went on to cozido de grau, a dish of chickpea stew flavoured with mint and accompanied, on a separate platter, with a mound of boiled pork and sausages. Really delicious and the single portion that we shared was more than sufficient for the two of us and was great value at just 9€ although we did feel that we might not have done our cholesterol levels any good by the time we had finished. Other menu options included hare and partridge. The waitress was helpful and friendly and we would happily recommend this restaurant to all who enjoy hearty portions of well-cooked simple food..
