After being recommended this pub by a work mate I decided to venture to The Dial for Sunday lunch. Although it was busy and we hadn't booked we where made to feel very welcome and after a few minutes escorted to our table in the bright modern conservatory style dining room. There was a set menu offered with 5 starters 7 mains (including 2 roasts) & 5 desserts. Our drinks arrived very quickly my partner said his Timothy Taylors Landlord bitter was excellent and obviously poured from a well cared fore cellar. We opted for the Carrot & corriander soup and Baked Brie with pear Chutney for starters and both were excellent and very tasty. But the best was yet to come as I had ordered the roast sirloin of English beef, this arrived on a hot plate with crispy, fluffy roast potatoes 2 thick slices of beef cooked medium rare to perfection and topped with a towering Yorkshire pudding that would put aunt Betty to shame!!! My partners roast pork was equally as good but with the addition of some of the crispest crackling we have ever tasted, our vegetables where served separately and where very fresh and tasty. My only real complaint was having to ask for some horseradish to complement my excellent beef!! I was to full for dessert but the bread and butter pudding I saw on the next table looked and smelt amazing, on my next visit I will forgo the starter and save room for pudd!!
It was great to visit a traditional village pub that is doing so well and manages to keep such great beer and fantastic food, Keep it up Elmdon Dial!! Well Done
