The Tudor Arms
Overlooking the picture-perfect canal and Slimbridge’s wetland wildlife reserve, and a regular winner of the CAMRA Country Pub Award, it’s no wonder that The Tudor Arms enjoys a legendary reputation. Diners can pop in for breakfast, lunch and dinner, where a menu of traditional treats is available. If calling in midweek, make the most of the two-course lunch offering for just £9.95. Guests are spoilt for choice with where to sit, thanks to six different dining areas.
My homemade Scotch egg with tangy beetroot chutney was a wonderful starter, and my partner quickly polished off her choice of sea bass, ginger and lime fishcake with zingy sweet chilli dip. For mains, the roast duck breast with bacon stuffing, rich red wine and shallot sauce, chateau potatoes and garden vegetables excelled, as did my partner’s hunter’s chicken – a butterfly chicken breast bathed in tasty barbecue sauce and accompanied by chips and fresh salad. To finish, the sublime golden syrup sponge served with lashings of custard had my name written all over it, and my partner enthused over her raspberry brûlée with buttery shortbread. As we couldn’t agree on who made the best dessert choice, we both named ourselves winners.
