Enthusiastic new owners Jackie and Keith have made several changes to the Sully Constitutional Club. Firstly, they’ve opened it fully to non-members, a move that has already attracted plenty of locals, and secondly, they’ve extended the bar and restaurant opening hours. The menu has been re-vamped to focus on a range of light bites, seafood and fi sh dishes, steaks, homemade pies and curries, all cooked on the premises by Keith. When we popped in our meal was exceptional, as was the service.
Passing through the cosy bar, we pulled up a pew in the large wood-panelled dining room, overlooking a sheltered patio. We were spoilt for choice when it came to deciding what to order, but breaded mushrooms and breaded chicken goujons, both served with salad garnish and a choice of dips, got us off to a good start. The accompanying warm, homemade bread was moreish, too. For mains, I chose the 8oz sirloin steak, with chips, peas, mushrooms and onions, washed down with a glass of shiraz. The steak was succulent and cooked just as we ordered, and my partner swiftly demolished her homemade corned beef pie, chips and peas. Somehow, we managed to share a portion of Eton Mess, which rounded off a delightful dining experience.
