The Coffee Tavern
We began our meal with mushroom and broccoli soup, and smoked salmon with brown bread and butter. The soup was deliciously earthy while the salmon came as a generously sized portion; it could almost have been a meal in its own right. For the main course I chose steak and kidney pie - hearty and delicious - while my companion opted for the corn beef hash. This had a thick potato topping and a satisfyingly spicy base.
For dessert we had the rhubarb crumble, served with piping hot custard, and a slice of Dutch apple pie, sweetened with liberal sprinklings of raisins. As the name suggests, the freshly brewed coffee was superb and proved the perfect ending to a very satisfying meal indeed.
