The Reindeer Inn

21 Jul

We found this lovely little pub whilst exploring Nottinghamshire’s country side.

The menu is very small, but very good and incredible value for money. I had a Ham Hock Terrine which was served with an Apricot Puree and Rocket Salad to start, and a lovely little Shepard’s Pie for main, whilst Phil had Broccoli and Stilton Soup to start and a fillet of Ling with Chorizo, New Potatoes and Mange Tout.

All the food was delicious, and in total we spent about £25 including drinks.

Whilst the pub doesn’t look like anything special either inside or out (blink and you’ll miss it), the food was well presented, and staff were incredibly friendly. It was clear from the visitors around that it’s an obvious hit with the locals (always a good sign if you ask me!). My only criticism, if i’m being really picky, was that it took quite a long time to get the starters, but when you’re not in a rush, and the food is THAT good, who really cares?

If  you’re out that way, I would also highly recommend a visit to Gonalston Farm Shop. Wonderful meats, fishes, cheeses and general fresh country produce! Now that we’ve found this place, I expect my wallet to be much much lighter in the future!

The lovely Gonalston Farm Shop.

    Will definitely give this place a try! Hoping to go to the new Marco Pierre White restaurant in Nottingham soon, so will no doubt be blogging about my experience there 🙂 Laura x
