My gorgeous daughter has her birthday coming up, so it’s super important that her jet-setting Dad gets to spend a quality day on her. So, it is the perfect excuse to visit a perfect little village with our perfect little lady. We started with lunch at pretty Kinghams Shere village Surrey.
We headed straight for lunch, planning to walk it off as we explore the village and surrounding rolling Surrey hill afterwards. I just love the hatches on the windows of this pub. Little things mean a lot.
Kinghams pub has a cottage home feel and is such a welcoming place.
It has a water feature by the door. My husband calls it a dribble, but I like it!
It’s a wonderful feeling to think my ancestors would have known and most likely spent considerable time at this enchanting little pub.
We requested a table outside. Its perfect.
Happily settled we check out the menu. Charlotte and I got no further than Roast prime beef, hubby fancied the Dover Sole.
So, came the time to think of our ‘baby’. Her ‘daddy bear’ gave her a card and we were grateful to be together.
Our sparkle arrived and it’s ‘cheers!’ all round.
Our starters got to us just before we got sozzled. Mine was a delicious venison carpaccio.
Charlotte went for this pretty celeriac soup.
Hubby opted for this not-so pretty but really tasty (he made me try) black pud and escargot affair.
It really is an enchanting place to sit and eat.
The Roast beef was certainly prime and the jus was plate licking good (sorry but it was).
I had a bit of a binge on those carrots and greens. Odd, I know, but they had so much flavour!
Andy opted to have his fish served on the bone. Each to themselves.
Juuust saved enough room for dessert. I’ve never knowingly passed one up yet.
We’ve eaten here on several occasions now and the staff are always genuinely lovely. Not just because they have put a candle into my babies pudding, they just seem really nice people.
I love this girl.
This rhubarb crumble may have had a ginger biscuit crumble topping. Charlotte loved it.
Mine was not the most elegant of dishes, more of a pud than a dessert. It tasted nice tho’.
This treacle tart however, was the fairest in the land.
The truffles with the coffee were coated in cake crumbs and the texture inside was super smooth.
We had a really wonderful time with our little lady, the setting, food and service meant we left feeling like a special occasion had just been had.
There’s something that stirs you when you see your husband love his child so much.
If you enjoy a pub style restaurant in a beautiful setting you may also like to look at The Wellington Arms it has a beautiful garden!
