You may notice a slight theme to the types of meals I’ve been having recently! Feels like everything is either breakfast or a Sunday lunch, oops! Winter calls for cosy meals surrounded by family and that’s exactly what we did recently when we visited The Fighting Cocks.

The beautiful conservatory dining area

The Fighting Cocks offers a wide range of tasty meals and pub snacks and our fully licensed conservatory restaurant with stunning views of our garden & river, serves a seasonal menu.

The Sunday mains Menu

Having a roast on a Sunday is potentially the best part of the week – sitting in a cosy restaurant with family is a highlight, especially when the food is as delicious as it was at The Fighting Cocks. The menu was so tempting, it took me an age (as always) to decide what to go for.

I decided to upon the Roast Turkey, definitely was still clinging onto the notion of Christmas with this… But I didn’t regret it! The meat was soft and full of moisture and the vegetables were cooked beautifully. It wasn’t the most beautifully presented dish (but then when is a roast ever exactly pretty).

The portion of turkey was quite large, and there were lots of veggies, albeit a slightly odd selection! We also ordered a portion of cauliflower cheese, which was the star of the show – it was so cheesy and delicious. It was obviously homemade and a really tasty edition to the meal.

Blurry because I was so desperate to eat it… oops

Another member of the party opted for the fish pie, which was perfect for a cold wintery day and was also served with a generous portion of vegetables. For a family meal out, the large dishes and generous servings were exactly what we wanted, especially as it’s so freezing and dingy outside!

Fish Pie!

For a meal in a beautiful setting, with something for all the family, I’d definitely recommend The Fighting Cocks. It’s always nice to support of local and family run business, and the food was very tasty, our party of 14 people were all looked after splendidly, at a very busy time of year, and especially on a chilly Sunday afternoon! Where’s the best local pub for a roast? Let me know! For more info visit their website linked above or on Facebook.
