eating out - the plough inn, yorkshire, england

Time to share some mouthwatering memories of a place we keep returning to whenever we find ourselves in the vicinity of York, Yorkshire - which is far too seldom if you ask me, and of course you are - the pub The Plough Inn in Allerthorpe.

The place - busy but friendly -, the village, the table by the street overlooking quaint houses, a village hall with a lovely blue door and impressively large trees that are always jam packed with chirping invisible to the eyes wee birds, early evening, sunsettish, waiting for the food just ordered enjoying a decent cider... that's relaxation, just perfectly being in the there and then. The best kind of holiday imaginable has begun.

And as with most British pubs there's a pleasing amount of vegetarian choices on the menu. This mushroom Stroganoff with veggies on the side was quite lovely. And so was the dessert - one which I had remembered fondly for some years since the previous visit, gosh, was it the perfect ending to the meal to find it still being on the menu, or what! - butterscotch cheesecake. Simply heavenly melt on your tongue delicious.

If you find yourself in the vicinity of Allerthorpe, please stop by, say hallo to the chirping birdies, the blue door and give my fondest regards to the vegetarian side of the menu. Especially one cheesecake named butterscotch.

That looks like a real belter of a meal - not for the faint-hearted. But then, I wouldn't expect anything less of a Yorkshire pub!

YUM. AND, still enjoying that Swedish chocolate. : )

Ha, ha, well, afos, the veggie part of the meal was mushrooms in sauce with rice and veggies which left a reasonable room for the perfect dessert. M however did get a steak that was quite on the large side... I didn't know that about Yorkshire pubs, quite funny:)

Wow, I'm impressed, John, I can't believe you still have some chocolate left! And don't forget to tell me, when finished munching, which flavour's your favourite...:)

Åh, den här får jag kolla in. Tack för tipset. Jag har mest frekventerat
pubarna innanför murarna och i Acomb. Landsbygden har ju tusen pärlor.
