This is where our journey started, the place where Tina and I first met back in October of 2014. I had never heard of this place before. Driven past numerous times, but never knew what it was called. Fast forward just over two years, and this is where we shared our engagement meal. Yes, señor Webber got down on one knee and proposed to Tina. She has been expecting it while we were in Bali. But alas, I had other plans for her.
The date was November 28th 2016 and Tina had no idea that we were heading up here.
Parking was fine, with their ample car park. If you find that the car park is full there is plenty of on-street free parking nearby.
We shared a couple of starters here. Cheesy garlic bread and some loaded potato skins with bacon. The garlic bread was nice, but the loaded potato skins were a tad crispy and were on the more burnt side to what we would generally like.
The mains though was to die for. Tina has ribs with chips and coleslaw. Whereas I had bangers and mash with garden peas. The only problem I had here with the mash as it was not wholly piping hot, therefore was quite firm. It needed to be mixed quite well with the gravy here.
We were far too full to have a dessert from here today. Which was strange because we usually relish having a plate of the sweet stuff after our mains.
I cannot remember now for the life of me what we paid, but you are looking at about £5-£7 per starter and then £10-£15 for a main from memory. So we didn’t get much change out of £40 for our engagement meal here at Hangleton Manor.
