Pubs and Bars with Restaurants
St Peter’s Finger is the sort of place where you feel right at home, thanks to friendly, welcoming staff and the perfect laid-back atmosphere. It’s a favourite haunt for locals, with a fantastic bar boasting a range of local ale, wine and spirits, and a dining area with ample room for large parties and romantic meals alike.
We visited in the evening and were welcomed like regulars. After perusing the menu, it was hard to look past the baked mushrooms to start, comprising large flat mushrooms accompanied by Puy-style lentils and a moreish citrus, caper and sunblushed tomato dressing. My partner’s prawn and avocado cocktail was just as tempting. For my main course, I went for the falafel burger seasoned with Mediterranean herbs and topped with vegan burger sauce, and couldn’t have been more impressed. My guest sampled the award-winning steak and Tanglefoot ale pie, which was packed with tender steak and rich gravy encased in crisp shortcrust pastry. Served with creamy mash and braised cabbage, leeks and bacon, it’s comfort food at its finest.
Almost replete but determined to enjoy the puddings on offer, we tucked into chocolate brownie and a delicious lemon tart. With delicious coffee and Hall & Woodhouse’s hallmark Badger beer on offer, there’s a tipple for every occasion. Even midweek, the pub was full of diners, so booking in advance is recommended.
