    It's nothing like the restaurant menu, we had garlic mushroom and a prawn starter, then I had two large sea bass fillets cooked in ginger and lime on a bed of bubble and squeak, oh had a steak, there were plenty of side vegetables, the only thing I we weren't so impressed with were the desserts, I had lemon posset but the lemon wasn't zested, so there were stringy pieces of lemon in there and the almond shortcake biscuits on the side were too chunky, something you would have with a cup of tea or coffee. OH had lemon meringue pie, he said it wasn' t as nice as mine but he was probably just being polite because the bill hadn't arrived yet :D

    I'm intrigued by the title of this thread. Woodseaves is a long way to go for a bit of cock.

    It is possible, if we assume that even the most rudimentary 'market research' was carried out, that this was 'Targeted Menu-ing'. We can thus conclude, quite reasonably, that people who live in Woodseaves are uninspired and lacking in imagination.

    Perhaps they should go to the pub to reinvigorate themselves?

    Cock now doing a midweek special, two courses for £10.95. Decent choice on the menu and normal sized portions.
    Boy had cod last night and it was larger than the 'full price' offerings available at some establishments, really tasty sauce too.

    I was considering taking on this pub years ago but the thing that finally swayed it was that I couldn't bear the though of answering the telephone - saying 'hello the cock inn'

    Went up to watch the footy last night ( Mrs T's suggestion ) had a great night.
    Pre match and first half barbecue followed by free burgers, chips, belly pork and kofta wraps during the extra time and shoot out.
    Great atmosphere, first game I've watched this time round. In fact thinking about it, it's probably the first game I've watched since last but one World cup.

    There's little else to do round there.

    Possibly...

    Perhaps we could organise a Forum flash-mob?

    The Holdens beer is splendid

    The building is immaculate

    The service is fine

    Still not impressed with the food sadly

    And I ever so want to be

    It lacks a little bit of sophistication ( yep, its meat eating farming country so they probably know their market ) and rather bland and unimaginative

    But then I'm not a meat eating farm worker

    So they won't be too bothered

    Elvis has left the building

    Well, that looks a bit rubbish. I 'll get another shot next time I'm up there.
