The Half Moon Inn, Fellbeck
Today’s post is a good old mini food review – It’s been a while since I shared one of these but I really enjoy doing them. They aren’t the most detailed and the food doesn’t tend to be the most extravagant, but it’s nice to showcase pubs and restaurants that are local to me.
The Half Moon Inn is a super small and cosy pub in Fellbeck, near Pateley Bridge. It’s a few miles up the road from Brimham Rocks, one of my favourite National Trust attractions in the area. I’ve been here once before with the husband – back when he was just a boyfriend – so it was nice to revisit it after such a long time.
As it’s a small pub the menu isn’t huge but there is a good variety available. There’s your usual pub grub like fish and chips and steak and ale pies but there’s also more exciting stuff like sweet and sour chicken and Thai green chicken curry.
Recently my IBS has been giving me hell so I opted for something small and filling, that hopefully wouldn’t set my stomach off. I went for a cheese and ham omelette with chips, thinking it was a safe option, and Jiminy Cricket, the portion (above) was absolutely colossal, coming with carrots, broccoli, slaw and side salad – Aswell as half a kilo of cooked potatoes.
But it was delicious, so I can’t really whinge! Plus that whole plate of food came in at £7.30 so it was definitely good value for money.
The husband went for a Chef’s mega mixed grill – sirloin steak, gammon steak, pork chop, lamb chop, sausage, egg, black pudding, onion rings and chips – coming in at £14.70. Again, the portion size was massive and, unlike me, Jody managed to eat pretty much all of his (bar the black pudding because ick).
For pud-pud, we both opted for the fudge cake with ice cream for £4.90 a pop. I was pretty tempted by a lemon-orange syrup sponge but the gooey fudgey goodness won in the end. Next time I’ll be trying it out for sure.
It was a pretty good fudge cake with ample sauce and ice cream and was served at a perfect, edible temperature.
Coming in at £40 for two mains, two desserts and two drinks, you can’t really go wrong can you?
Oh, and did I mentioned there was an overly friendly spaniel there too?
If that doesn’t peak your interest then I don’t know what will.
