Saturday 25th February was girls netball night out. Don’t laugh, I am the oldest by at least 15 years and I now only play ocassionally when they are desperate. In fact we were belatedly celebrating two other team members 40th birthdays.
Tony and I have been here before for coffee/cake but on the only previous visit in an evening it was full and we hadn’t booked so had to go elsewhere.
I now know why. The place was buzzing and the food was very good.
We started with Nachos to share. What can you say!
I chose Lemon Sole for my main served with salad and Caper butter. I have a photo, if I can work out how to download it. The caper buter was delicious and really complemented the fish. The menu is extensive, with pizzas, pasta as well as a large variety of other meat and fish dishes. Some had pasta; another in the group had pan fried squid served on a bed of rocket, garnished with king prawns and a sweet chilli sauce. It looked and tasted the part.
The desserts were divine also. I opted for french lemon tarte served with vanilla ice cream but the sticky toffee pudding and carrot and pineapple cake also looked amazing.
On the negative side there are two sittings and we were on the first so expected to be out for 9. On the plus, that left plenty of drinking time afterwards. When the weather improves thereis an outdoor undercover area (a bit like the Victoria Quarter in Leeds but not quite.
Its not often Tony and I eat out in Halifax, but things are improving and we will certainly go back here together again.
The cost was £22 per head for a shared starter, main and dessert each as well as 4 bottles of reasonable wine.
