Our Kids took us out for their dads birthday last night to the Linton arms which has very recently changed hands (2 weeks). We had a drink in the public bar before being taken upstairs to the dinning room. Patrick ( The new owner) introduced himself and seated us at a beautifully set table with loads of elbow room for the 6 of us. Patrick also gave us a little bit of his own history and chatted away like an old friend. The menu was suitable for all and as you would expect an extensive steak menu.
The meal was superb. We are a sharing family so everyone had a taste of everyone's dish. The prawn & avocado salad came with king size prawns, the starter meatballs were sooo tasty as was the Pate and the leek & potato soup was as good as any granny ever made.
The mains were 5 steaks, all varying in size and the way they were cooked with different sauces arrived at the same time and were all fantastic. Succulent meat that could be cut with a butter knife. Patrick told us he sourced his meat from the local butchers (Linton Butchers) who I use myself and know they sell only quality produce.
There was also one beer battered fish was delicious with a light batter.
2 sweets were ordered and that was just greed. The fresh berry Eton Mess was huge and enough for 2 but to be honest you don't want to share it. The fruit was fresh and just lovely.
Our waitress for the night was a lovely young girl called Caroline who was polite, friendly and attentive without being intrusive providing excellent service along with Patrick.
After dinner we were shown to a lovely cosy lounge where you could relax with a coffee and just chill.
Well done to the chef's Sean & Dawn (yes we did point that out). Excellent food and presented beautifully.
All in all we can't wait for a return visit and would recommend to anyone.
