Sunday lunch at the Marle inn..

Mrs Fitz decided it would be a good idea to go for Sunday lunch at the Marls inn ..

And it was a great idea!! Our pal Ben joined us also.. He wasn’t 100% convinced that it was as good as we said …

He is converted now!

Mrs Fitz didn’t eat breakfast so she could enjoy her lunch all the more. ( I had scotch pancakes )..

Decided against starters although in the end I just had to try the belly pork croquette, with crackling.. Quite funny really.. The chef Alain.. Betted that I would have the pork as a starter and the slow roasted gressingham duck as a main…

I only recently met the chap! How the heck does he know me that well already!!

Ben and Mrs Fitz went for the roast sirloin.. As perfect as could be.. With lovely roasted potatoes , heritage carrots and squeaky green cabbage..

And remember the last visit and the gravy ? Well they took note and changed the recipe!! How cool is that?

The food was wonderful..

Yet just had to hit the desserts!

Sticky toffee pudding with caramel sauce and ice cream ( homemade of course!) , lemon tart and that wonderful ice-cream.. The dark chocolate one is just sublime!! The banana one is very clever too!! All shared between the three of us.. Promise!

Feeling very full yet happy.. If you get the chance you really should eat there

I will return in two weeks for Sunday lunch as am off to eire for a few days..

Chef Alain had promised me a salted caramel pumpernickel Guinness custard number???!!! Let’s see huh !

  1. I’m going to try to make that crispy looking slow roast duck leg.

  2. The whole spread looks delicious. That toffee pudding and caramel with ice cream sounds like something I’d probably start with.

  3. I must definitely make a point of eating there. I am too busy cooking myself to get out and eat. However since it is only 10mins by car from home I have to make the effort.
