While Kieran’s dad was visiting Manchester a couple of weekends ago, we decided to visit The Old Wellington Inn for lunch. It’s one of the oldest buildings in Manchester, built originally in 1552. I was actually really surprised by the menu – not just the usual stuff you find in a pub and there were a few dishes I would have been happy ordering.
I ended up going for:
GRILLED SEABASS FILLETS £11.45
Served on crushed new potatoes, peas,
asparagus and spinach, with a lemon
and basil sauce
The sea bass was cooked well, skin was just about crispy and the vegetables were fresh and tasty. The sauce was lovely, but really strong. There was no way you needed what was on the plate, let alone what was in the little tub. I’m just glad it wasn’t on the fish, as it would have been much too overpowering. As it was, I really liked the dish.
Kieran and his dad ordered:
8oz RUMP £9.95
Steaks are served with skin on chips,
flat mushroom and grilled tomato with a
choice of peppercorn or blue cheese sauce
for an extra £1.50.
Kieran ordered medium rare and got medium rare. Take note Gaucho!!
Very good pub grub at very reasonable prices.
