Lunch at The Brickmakers Windlesham

September 3, 2017

The Brickmakers in Windlesham is a very popular restaurant as well as being a pub. Paul Clarke, Head Chef, has been with them for some years and during that time has produced consistently good food, with many inspired ‘tweaks’ along the way. His menu reflects this and his goats cheese and beetroot cheesecake is an inspiration. Locally produced fare and emphasis on fresh and quality are his mantras. Come and sample for yourselves! Their wine selection is also comprehensive and we have selected a couple or so for you to try.

Summer’s end is heralded by their annual Jazz Festival in the gardens, which are lovely, and conducive to a lazy Sunday afternoon of conviviality.

The Inn at West End-Portugese themed Lunch

September 7, 2011

This delightful gastropub, tucked away in West End in

Surrey, boasts an award-winning menu, convivial

atmosphere and a bright, cheerful interior. The owners of The Inn @ West End are passionate about good food and wine, and the restaurant boasts its own vegetable patch. The kitchen, led by Lee Watts, uses seasonal produce to create The Inn’s sensational modern British menu. It has a diverse cellar leaning towards Portugal and Spain.

The Inn is open-plan, with bare boards, attractive modern prints on canary-yellow walls above a red dado, and a line of dining tables with crisp white linen over pale yellow table- cloths on the left. The bar counter - Fullers London Pride and a guest such as Exmoor Ale on hand pump and 30 malts - is quite a focus. There is a garden room, which in turn leads to a grape and clematis pergola-covered terrace and very pleasant garden.

Fresh fish and game are collected in their chilller van from wherever it is freshest and best. Much of the produce is sourced locally, and they have their own herb garden and they grow things like runner beans and tomatoes too.

The landlord is also a wine merchant, so the thoughtfully created food is well com- plemented by the knowledgeably chosen wines, several sherries and dessert wines that lean particularly towards Spain and Portugal. He holds wine tastings and can supply by the case.
