It’s June and we all know what that means – we’re officially halfway through 2017 and Father’s Day is here again.
How do you go about making your father happy? For those of us which aren’t under any illusions about pairs of socks and ties equalling happiness, it can be a little tricky thinking of something special to mark the day, but something that isn’t overblown and sort of embarrassing for the both of you as it’s just too much.
Father’s Day is a difficult affair to get it just right with your dad – but fortunately we, at the Groes Inn, have all that you need in order to make this the best Father’s Day ever.
We know the secret to a very happy Dad at the Groes Inn – and that’s a full belly and good company, laid back and comforting, in its own way. A fantastic gift this father’s day is conversation, just you and him in our laid back and very charming inn in Conwy – as well as fantastic food which certainly is special, very special – but never, ever pretentious. We promise.
We’re delighted to announce our 2017 Father’s Day Menu, and you’re more than welcome to browse it at your leisure on our website. Why not start with a choice of our classic soup of the day?
For the vegetarians among us we can provide a choice of creamy garlic mushrooms with thyme buttered toast and breaded goats cheese which is accompanied perfectly with seasonal beetroot and pea shoot salad. While not vegetarian friendly by a long shot, we’d never dream of leaving out our extremely popular starter: Bury Black Pudding, Streaky Bacon, and a poached egg, on a beautifully toasted muffin.
Your mains have so much choice too. You’re welcome to choose from a ultra-traditional (but so good!) roast sirloin of beef and all the trimmings, including Yorkshire puddings, seasonal vegetables, roast potatoes, which is finished with a beautiful (if we do say so ourselves) red wine gravy.
Alternatively, you can treat dad to half a roast chicken, accompanied by roasties, seasonal vegetables, as well as Chef’s own roast gravy. A brand new addition this year is battered fillet of haddock, which is covered in JW Lee’s own ale batter and accompanied by tartar sauce, ultra-thick cut chips, as well as mushy peas. Alternatively, there’s a slow roasted shoulder of lamb on a bed of savoy cabbage and creamy leeks, accompanied with a cheesy potato cake and red wine and mint jus.
Even the fussiest of eaters are very well catered for at the Groes Inn, and we can offer yet another alternative – our very popular grilled thick gammon steak with fried eggs, thick cut chips or new potatoes, as well as flat mushrooms, tomatoes and onion rings, as well as our (legendary, to be fair) chicken curry with poppadums, mango chutney and boiled rice. Vegetarian diners are well provided for with a Groes Inn favourite – baked field mushroom with ratatouille, grilled cheese and a roasted pepper cous cous.
If you’re able to manage dessert, we’re more than happy to provide. You can choose between classic (but oh so tasty) apple crumble with vanilla pod custard, sticky toffee pudding with toffee sauce and vanilla ice cream, mulled berry eton mess, or enjoy French silk chocolate pie, with a shortbread base and a soft chocolate filling.
After such a feast, as well as our selections of ales, we’re sure that Dad will wish its father’s day every day. Of course, we do have a number of handsome rooms to choose from, should you want to extend the day into say, a week. At the Groes Inn, we pride ourselves on being laid back and casual – well and truly flexible so you can both enjoy.
