Seeing as there doesn't appear to be a restaurant review thread or something similar, I thought it might be an idea to create one. This doesn't have to be strictly restaurants and can be your Mrs food. Anyhoo, I'll start off with my meal at Balgove Larder yesterday. Arrived there about 6:45pm and the sun was glorious. We went into the barn but it turned out there was a 30 min wait, so me and my mate popped out to the bar on the outside. He had a coke and I had some local beer called 19th Brew Golden Ale which was lovely, but did taste a tad watered down. We eventually got called to a table and ordered shortly after sitting. We both ordered an 8oz Sirloin (medium rare for me) which comes with a side of chips and salad. I also asked for some peppercorn sauce and their beer battered onion rings, my mate opted for the garlic butter. Cue about 45 mins for the meal to arrive (this seems to be the norm there). Presentation wise, it's fairly basic as they serve everything on a wooden chopping board. I felt that my steak wasn't quite medium rare, but nonetheless still excellent. I'm led to believe it's cows from their farm that they use and the meat is matured for 28 days. The garlic sauce was sweet but complementary and went well with the peppercorn sauce. Chips were also top notch, onion rings were slightly undercooked but still enjoyable. The bill all together came to £55 (I had a further ale and my mate had a couple more cokes) which I think is more than reasonable. I also enjoy the novelty of eating inside a barn with the floor being gravel. We were there approx 2 hours in total, maybe a bit longer. Overall, I give Balgove Larder a 4 out of 5 P&B points, and the food itself was a 4.5 out of 5. So come on and give a review of yir dinner. P. S here's a wee pic of the sunset outside the barn afterwards.
I fancy reviewing a Scottish football match and stadium to post on my blog. Any suggestions? A decent crunch match would be ideal, with plenty of fan noise. Quality of football is not the number one priority;) Only have German and Dutch games so far. Cheers www.eurofootballstadium.com
