Located in the middle of Maylandsea, the popular Hardy's Bar & Grill succeeds in attracting local trade as well as passersby. Last year alone, this establishment served 42,000 individual plates of food to its varied clientele, which is no mean feat. Housed within a building that dates back to the 1960s, it has been brought up to date with a new sleek, modern interior, which is both light and airy. Offering warm and cosy surroundings, a friendly welcome and fantastic food, Hardy's has got it all.

As we arrived, we were immediately immersed in the pub's vibrant atmosphere; there were lots of people drinking outside and the restaurant was full of diners tucking into their meals. By the time we took our seats, we had already spied the specials board and couldn't wait to see what else was on offer.

Our dinner was off to a fl ying start with my bruschetta topped with prawns and my companion's Brussels pâté with a toasted bloomer, chutney and a salad garnish. For our main courses, the steak, mushroom and stout pie was hearty and delicious, while my friend savoured every mouthful of his fisherman's feast from the daily specials board, which was beautifully served in a mini bucket and filled with cod, scampi and butterfly prawns. As owner Stuart Parkes firmly believes in the importance of regionally sourced produce and only uses reliable meat, fish and vegetable suppliers, we knew that the ingredients were all of the highest quality. The portions were generous to say the least, but I could just about manage a scoop of cool, refreshing mango sorbet to cleanse my palate. The apple and blackberry crumble served opposite me was complemented by vanilla ice cream and went down very well indeed.

The lively bar and restaurant showed no signs of quieting down as the evening
went on; the place was full of customers of all ages, enjoying their dinner or
relaxing over a glass of wine or a pint of beer and chatting with friends. It was
a joy to spend a Friday evening at Hardy's, where the well-dressed staff went to
great lengths to make us feel at home. Of course, families are also well catered
for here and a separate children's menu is available for the little ones
