Clays of Broseley, Shropshire
I had wanted to try Clays of Broseley for my mum's birthday but wasn't overly keen on their menu when I looked at their website, I fancied steak so I sent them a message and to my surprise they replied and said yes we can put some steak on the menu, what sauce would you like and gave me a choice! Wow, how is that for service!!
We parked in the public car park which was only over the road as the restaurant doesn't have parking. The front of the restaurant is welcoming with a nice canopy. We walked in and it is lovely and bright and clean and contemporary however we were seated downstairs which was a bit of a contast. Lovely bare brick walls, with nice mood lighting, really cosy and welcoming yet still contemporary.
We started looking at the menus and there on an extra sheet was the special for today which was the steak in a red wine sauce I had spoken to them about. They also had venison on their regular menu which is my favourite so hubby and I ordered one of each and swapped half and half :) They also didn't have a childrens menu however the waitress advised that they could do smaller portions of anything on the menu for my daughter.
We had crositini with olives and goast cheese for our starter which was beautiful and so tasty, they brought out a basket of bread with some stunning sundried tomato bread. My daughter had mini fish with mashed carrot and swede and mashed potato and they were good enough to bring this out with our starters.
The venison and the steaks were cooked to perfection, they really were, we couldn't fault them and not an ounce of fat on them. The sauce was beautiful and tasty and plenty of it. We both had the baked white chocolate cheesecake for dessert which came with raspberries and raspberry coulis, this was beautiful and fluffy and tasty. I finished off with a baileys coffee which came with a lovely little meringue with a chocolate coffee ganache running through the middle.
All in all a lovely meal, fantastic personalised service, lovely setting, I really could not find any fault!
