For my Nan’s 80th birthday we booked a table at a local family favourite, Junction 28. The restaurant has a part which is made up of two converted railway carriages and in the style of the orient express. We went for the lunch time menu. The restaurant wasn’t that busy but we sat for drink before our meal where we could have a chance to properly mull over the menu. There was ten of us so after our drinks we were taken into our own private area which was really nice, this gave us an opportunity to have a good catch up with the family and not disturb other customers. The menu wasn’t very varied. There was a set menu which was around £19 for three courses but I chose from their grill. The rump steak was £15.95 with peppered sauce and chips. I order the steak medium rare. The steak was really nice but was a bit to rare for me but the sauce was lovely. Really creamy and not too peppery. The chips came as a side, they were well cooked, crispy and salty. My main meal overall was really good. We then ordered deserts, I chose choux buns filled with a vanilla custard and topped with melted chocolate . It was gorgeous, a really lovely desert. It was sweet and the chocolate wasn’t too rich.
Overall this restaurant was a lovely place to have a family meal. Although the menu was very varied the food that was served all looked lovely and well presented. I recommend this restaurant, the staff were lovely and the decor was well suited to the railway theme. Although the menu was pricey it is definitely a place to go as a treat.
