Report on Serendipity Group Meeting - The Wheatsheaf Steak Night, Thursday, 25 July 2019
We had heard some very good reports about
Steak Night at The Wheatsheaf
10 members were looking forward to going
There were some good things:
- The Prawn Cocktail
- The Garlic Mushrooms
- The Treacle sponge with lots of custard
- The chocolate brownie
- The ice cream
- The chips
- The battered onion rings
- The small side salad
- The peas were OK
- The garic bread
- The San Miguel
- The John Smiths Cask
- The social chat amongst friends
Two glaringly obvious items are missing from the good list!
- The Steak
- The Wine
- Plus: The length of time taken to serve us: nearly three hours
The wine, red, white and rose was ‘British’
Reading the bottles we soon discovered that these wines are made from concentrated materials and a low 10% strength.
Personal opinions on the taste varied, however more than one person mentioned Ribena and very sweet about the red one
Some of us asked for our steaks to be cooked medium-rare and the rest medium.
All of the steaks eventually arrived, disappointingly, really well overcooked
Would we go back?
I think that you probably know the answer to that question.
