Carribean Food in the countryside.
The outskirts of Bromsgrove are an unusual place to find a traditional pub & restaurant that specialises in Caribbean food but it came highly recommend by friends so we stopped off for a quick lunch on a busy saturday.
The building is impressive and the interior has a range of pleasing little quirks such as milk pails turned into bar stools. Behind the bar is a good selection of ales and ciders along with all the things you would normally expect. There are a vast array of food options, with a full Caribbean menu, pub classics and specials too. Whilst we had planned on having something Caribbean, given it was early in the day we took a look at the lunch menu and opted for a bargain instead. 3 courses from the set menu was only £12.99 each but we took the smaller version and had 2 courses for £9.99
We both opted for the Wildmoor wings which were deep-fried with a piri butter and served with a blue cheese dressing, we followed it up with the Jerk Chicken Burger. This ended up being the 3rd day in a row that I had eaten chicken wings (no idea how that happened) but they were tender in the middle with a crispy outer that had just enough spice to add flavour but not too much for my mild tastes. The burger was simple, but the sauce was particularly good and an insight into what the full menu might be like.
A good atmosphere, friendly staff and enjoyable food this country pub deserves it’s reputation. We are already making plans to go back for an evening meal so we can test out the full Caribbean menu but this a bargain price for a 2 course lunch.
