Local Dining Out Report for November 2015

Wednesday 25th November 2015

Local Dining Out Group Dinner - at The Silver Plough at Pitton

.  

The Silver Plough was always a place which I'd heard about, from many people over recent years but never visited until recently. We decided, following that visit, to arrange our Local Dining Out Group there for Wednesday 25th November.

Our original intention was to use the main function room at The Silver Plough but as a result of lower than expected numbers, we arranged to dine in the Snug Bar, which was in fact an excellent move. The Snug Bar was just right for our 19 diners. Not too large, nice lower ceiling, with a cosy feel. We were able to sit at two large tables and had the room to ourselves with our own bar.

We arrived around 7:45pm and made our way into the Snug Bar and had around 30 minutes to sit and chat before our main course arrived.

Quite a few people had chosen the Hake, several the Pork, one the Tagliatelle, one the Gammon, two the Tart and I had the Chicken. My own dinner was absolutely delicious, the chicken melted in my mouth, the beans were nice, the diced chorizo added flavour and the sauteed potatoes plus the balsamic dressing completed overal taste. I must say everyone seemed very impressed with their choices.

After a short interval our desserts arrived. Quite a few people had chosen the Passion Fruit Cheesecake but others the Sticky Toffee Pudding, the Chocolate Brownie, Roulade, Creme Brulee and the Pavlova. All the desserts looked really nice and again I believe everyone liked their choices.

We were really pleased to receive, as a raffle prize, a marvellous basket of bottles of different drinks, from the management at the Silver Plough. Raffle tickets had been sold throughout the evening and the draw was made around 9pm. The winner of the main prize generously split it up, only accepting part, the remaining items were put back for further tickets drawn. At the end, of the main draw, we had our diners ticket draw. This was for a box of Maltesers, which were passed around the tables and shared by all of our diners. We raised £29.00 towards our chosen charity, the British Heart Foundation, making a total of £100 now since September. We will support the same charity on our Christmas Dining Out evening, hoping to make it a bumper donation. Our thanks to those who gave raffle prizes for the evening and all those who sold and folded the tickets.

Each Dining Out evening goes very quickly! We boarded our Herrington's coach and Alan our driver took us safely home to our respective villages. A big thank you to everyone who came along and supported us, to the staff at the Silver Plough for an excellent evening and to Herrington'e drivers for our transport.

Our next Local Dining Out Evening will be our Christmas Dinner on Wednesday 16th December at The Woodfalls Inn, Woodfalls. Our first dinner
in 2016, will be on Wednesday 20th January (weather permitting) at The Redshoot Inn at Linwood, details to follow.
