Well here was this year's offering... they didn't do too bad, considering when I said vegan they just sent me a list of allergens in all the dishes, which did nothing but show me that I couldn't eat anything!
So they made some exclusions for me and here is what I got. (Excuse the blurry pics, I normally use Simon's phone for food photos but as he wasn't there, I had to use my hunk of crap, soon to be ex, phone!)
This was ok. Two out of the four or so varieties of pumpkin on the plate were sweet and lovely. The other were totally flavourless. There was some spices on there, that were hard to make out. Except for Cinnamon, which they had used whole ones of, broken up. I got several pieces in my teeth, which was unpleasant.
*I couldn't eat the crumble bit so it was left off. Basically what I got was chopped up mango. With mango sauce. Then they brought me out some mango sorbet to go with it. A mango trifecta!!
The sorbet was good, the rest was a bit pants!
Rating 2/10 (not particularly exciting or tasty).
The pub itself did a great job of getting everyone's food out, still hot and on time. That places was completely PACKED full of Christmas dos. I'm also really glad they were able to accommodate me but more importantly, I'm glad there was wine!
Small portions and wine meant that I was hungry when Simon picked me up. So on the way home we stopped for Chinese food! haha (terrible bedroom dinner photo!)
How did everyone else do, food-wise, on their festive work events?
