Sometimes, a girl just needs some downtime.
Downtime for me comes with good food, good company, living in comfy, stretchy clothes, a little bit of a drink and basically doing the things that make me happy. Last weekend was my ultimate Becky-weekend, where we had a Harry Potter movie marathon and tried out our local Sizzling Pub.
I think I had been hiding under a rock as I had never been to a Sizzling Pub before, despite my nearest one being a mere 2 miles away. Sizzling Pubs have over 200 pubs across the UK, so why I hadn’t yet visisted one – I have no idea. This weekend, our local Sizzling Pub delivered exactly what I wanted and needed: a huge, tasty, flavoursome meal where I could enjoy some time catching up with my friends in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere.
Sizzling Pubs is known for their flame grilled food and big portions. A number of dishes on the menu were known as mighty and ultimate. We all opted for different meals and none of us were disappointed.
Two of us opted for burgers. One of my friend’s going for The Skyscraper – two burgers topped with cheese and bacon. The ultimate feel good burger. The Geek opted for the Southern Fried chicken Burger – two southern friend chicken breasts smothered in cheese. Both were served with chips and salad.
Another friend went for one of the ultimate plates – we had all built quite an appetite after 3 Harry Potter films without a break. He went for the Chick-tastic and I won’t lie, I did get a bit of food envy. The Chick-tastic is one of those dishes where you want to eat all of the chicken and want the best out of both worlds. The Chick-tastic has every flavour popular chicken flavour on it: lemon piri-pir chicken, barbecue chicken and southern fried chicken.
I personally went for something a little more pub grub-esque. After indulging in rich food on our trip to Kent over the past week, I needed something that I knew would just hit the spot and make me happy. I went for a classic beef and red wine lasagne: it’s was full of beef, pasta and cheese served with garlic bread and salad. That’s the beauty of a Sizzling Pub – it not only serves huge plates of meat but can even cater for the carb oritentated girls like me.
We finished off the evening by trying out some sundaes opting for the Rocky Road and Cadbury’s Chocolate Lover sundaes. You know what’s the key to contentment? Going back to the days of ice cream sundaes covered in delicious Cadbury’s chocolate. The sundaes came in sizeable glasses which could be shared for 2 people or one huge treat for one person.
We will be back to a Sizzling Pub? We sure will. It was a great way to break up a weekend and really refresh ourselves with good quality food.
