We came back a little earlier from a delightful meal at a country pub recommended to us by a former work colleague. The food was delicious.
The venue was an coaching house called The Highwayman's Haunt, in the Devon rural village of Chudleigh. The atmosphere was low key and very pleasant and the menu full of choice. The venue has an impressive history,and dates from 1239.
My selection was a lovely dish called Drunk Mutton which is a leg of lamb served in a red current, rosemary and madeira sauce served with the most delicious roast potatoes and seasonal vegetables. Tonight's selection was mash suede, carrots and broccoli.
I don't usually have a desert, but could not resist the dark chocolate liqueur mouse followed by coffee.
A lovely evening and the food highly recommended.
