Food….. The Midway Stockport

Last night the boyfriend and I chose here for a quick dinner after I’d finished work and choosing this place was a great decision. It is across the road from a council estate so to be honest, being snobs we were not expecting an awful lot but it was great. This is technically a tavern but the dining room is seperate from the pub so we were away from the noise. the food was delicious and good value.

Here’s what we had:

Shared a cheesy garlic bread. This was delicous, and the dressed side salad was also great. 5/5

Me: Smoked Haddock with buttery mash, parsley sauce and poached egg. I don’t often have fish but this was delicious there wasn’t a single bone, the egg was poched to perfection and it was definitely real mash! 5/5

The Boyfriend: Oven baked chicken with mushroom sauce, new potatoes and brocoli. The chicken was nice and moist and the sauce was absolutely delicious. The veg were perfectly cooked and there was plenty of sauce. 5/5

All this with two drinks each for £31, but we were so impressed we left a a £5 tip. GO!

 

 

Food…The John Millington in Cheadle

So as I was working late the b0yfriend and I decided to go out for dinner last night, it was really great to relax after working hard all week. We picked this place at random and it was the perfect choice.

The John Millington is a pub with a seperate dining area and was really busy, but this was purely down to it being a great place. We were sat as soon as we got there and straight away orders were taken food was quick to arrive and it was delicious. Both the boyfriend and I really fancied a steak so we had fillet steaks (me medium rare, him blue) and they were delicous the bernaise sauce that came with them was even better. The only upsetting part of the experience was that I couldn’t eat it all so I had no room left for dessert!

The menu here was great and there was lots of things I would have chosen if I didn’t have a meat craving.

The bill came to roughly £65 (plus £5 tips) and that was for two courses and a glass of wine for me and two large diet cokes for the boyfriend. Here’s what we got for that:

Starters

We shared three appetisers:

Mini mac and cheese : delicous the sauce could have been a bit thicker but it was still amazing.

Mini Sausages and BBQ sauce: the sauasages were of excellent quality and went really well with the sauce.

Mini Southern Fried Chicken: perfect bread crumbs and fried to perfection.

Mains

Me : Fillet steak Medium Rare with chips bernaise sauce, onions rings and a mushroom. The steak was cooked right too!

The Boyfriend: The same as me but blue.

Drinks

Me: White wine and lemonade, a little bit dry for me but still lovely and nice and cold.

The Boyfriend: Two Large Diet Cokes

I would give the place a:

5/5

Even the toilets were pleasant!

If you find yourself in Manchester leave the city centre and come here instead. Now drool over the pictures.
