The lovely Brownen & Addy (ex of The Waggon in Uppermill) back on form, coupled with their fantastic French chef Jean (pronounced John!) Yves, was a winning combination when 4 of us had dinner there on Saturday night. We had never been to The Junction before as it's a bit out of the way for us but couldn't believe how lovely it was inside & well worth driving to, especially as it has a massive car park attached which is easily accessed from the main road. The pub itself has just had a major facelift & is very tastefully & beautifully furnished with lots of comfy brown leather banquettes & a big open fireplace.
I had pate to start which was lovely but our friend had the duck & black pudding samosas which he let me try & they were delicious.
For his main course my better half had the sausages (which were supplied by Alf Pearson butchers which in my humble opinion is the best butcher in Ashton). We were all jealous because these sausages were MASSIVE so we all nicked a bit & they were really tasty!
All the meals were lovely but my friend particularly enjoyed her Haddock Mornay. We had Strawberry pavlova for dessert which we really enjoyed. As always with Addy, Bronwen & Jean the prices were very reasonable as well so all in all it was a great night!
They even gave us a free tour of their new coffee machine that I believe makes all the appropriate noises & lovely coffee but as it wasn't up & running yet I can't say what it tastes like yet but hopefully I'll find out next Saturday because we've booked to go again!
My husband also said they have a fine selection of cask ales, which means nothing to me but I'm sure people who drink beer will know what he means!
