If you follow me on social media then you’ve probably already seen at the fabulous blogger event hosted by The Parson’s Nose recently.
If you don’t know it this is a lovely Georgian pub in Hillsborough. It’s just had a refurbishment and management were keen to show us the new look. It’s much lighter and brighter now with a real feeling of space.
It is a fully licensed pub but the real event is the food which comes from the award-winning chef Danny Millar and their new wood-fired stone oven.
We were treated to a real feast. We started with langoustines with chorizo and tomato served with sourdough bread and a perfectly matched white wine.
Moving on we sampled the wood-fired pizza. I’m almost tempted to say don’t try these – you’ll never want to eat any other kind of pizza again.
The main event was the cote se boeuf – served medium rare from the stone oven, complete with bearnaise sauce, asparagus and hand cut chips… heaven. It was finished off by rhubarb and lemon tart. I’ll admit I could barely fit it in.
The pub has also renovated their beer garden so this is good big to be a big hit come summer. But come when it’s raining anyway, the food and decor aren’t to be missed!
