Review : Black Horse @Beamish, County Durham

It was a special occasion on Saturday as it was my boyfriend's mum's birthday. She chose the venue called Black Horse at Beamish, County Durham. 

It is 5 minute drive from the Beamish Museum or approx 20 minutes drive from Durham City Centre.

It wasn't a very sunny but that didn't spoil the day, the pub was very nicely decorated inside with hand painted designs everywhere which I just loved...got me thinking maybe I need to find a space in my home for something similar. 

There was a good choice on the menu if you wanted a big meal, such as Sausage & Mash, Chicken wrapped in ham with fondant potato, Fish & Chips, Steak but it was quite limiting if you wanted just a salad or veggie dish.

After debating the Ploughman's (cheese & ham with pickle) selection and put on the spot when everyone else had ordered I went with the classic chicken caesar salad. 

It was really tasty and presented really nicely, I ordered the main course portion and it was very generous in size as I couldn't eat all of it. Luckily some others round the table were happy to help. It was made up of lovely crunchy cos lettuce, cold pan fried chicken, boiled eggs and chunky croutons.

It wasn't too busy so we felt like we could take our time and enjoy our lunch. 

Things I didn't like so much is that the toilets were outside (random) and I didn't realise this when I started following the signs so I was pretty cold by the time I got back to my seat. Plus the only music I heard while I was there was the Michael Jackson new album twice. But... if thats the only things I could find to complain about I will just remember to bring a cardigan next time.

We ordered some desserts, it would be rude not to see what they were like, I shared the salted caramel tart with pistachio ice cream with my boyfriends sister.

Others had the sticky toffee pudding and the little one had a strawberry cone.

Hope your having a lovely bank holiday weekend :-)
