Dining With Brewers Fayre, Clock Tower : Review
At the end of last week we were invited to our local Brewers Fayre restaurant to sample their new Daytime Value menu and the kids got to try out the new kids menu from Beano.
So last Thursday after school the kids and I met ClearlyDaddy from work at The Clock Tower, Brewers Fayre in Telford. An easy to find restaurant, located off the Clock Tower Roundabout in Donnington, Telford.
Upon our arrival we were greeted by a member of the waiting on team, checked in and shown to our table. We were advised to place our order at the bar where we could also get our drinks, the kids were handed their copy of the Beano Activity Comic and a pack of crayons.
We then got to work browsing through the menus, where we soon realised the true value of the Daytime Value menu and we were really impressed. 2 Starters for £2.50, 2 mains for £10.99 and 2 puddings also for £2.50, so that’s was ClearlyDaddy and I fed with a 3 course mean for just short of £16!
The kids each had a three course meal costing £4.99. Drinks were priced separately from all of the meal deals.
Daytime Value Menu
The choice of each of the menus we found to be really family friendly, the Daytime Value Menu mainly focused on your typical “pub grub”. Starters mainly consisted of Tomato Soup, Breaded Mushrooms etc, with 4 starters to choose from with 1 vegetarian option.
The main course Daytime Value menu features Fish & Chips, Sausage & Mash, Burger, Lasagne, Chicken Tikka Masala etc. From the 13 main meals available to choose from there are only 2 Vegetarian options which I found to be a bit of a let down.
The Daytime Value Puddings menu has another 4 options to choose from, of which all 4 are options for vegetarians and you can choose from Profiteroles, Chocolate Brownie, Ice Cream and Apple Tart.
The Kids menu we found to be really good, there was certainly something for every child, included my fussy eating 3 year old.
The starter menu I found to include a nice little light bite, consisting of Garlic Bread, Tomato Soup, Vegetable Dippers and Nacho’s.
The main course menu I found to be very child friendly, meals which children will enjoy. With 8 meals to choose from they have a choice of Burger, Tomato Pasta, Grilled Chicken, Spaghetti Bolognese and more. There were 2 vegetarian options to this menu. Your child has an extra option to this menu as they can choose two of their own sides, with a choice from Chips, Sweetcorn Cob, Beans, Coleslaw, Garlic Bread and more.
The puddings menu was something for kids to really work towards and a lovely treat should they get that far, with 6 puddings to choose from my children really did have to drive to eat all their meals. Puddings to choose from consisted of, Ice Cream, Donuts, Warm Chocolate Brownie, Fruit Salad and more.
With all this choice it did take us a little while to decide what to eat for our meals.
For our starters the kids each ordered the Vegetable Sticks and Dip whilst I ordered the Garlic & Parsley Breaded Mushrooms and ClearlyDaddy ordered the Spicy Potato Dippers. The kids starters came with a Rosemary Dip, mine a BBQ Dip and Garlic Mayo Dip whilst ClearlyDaddy’s a Sour Cream and Tangy Tomato Piri Piri Sauce.
Our starters were lovely, although we failed to find any spice to ClearlyDaddy’s Potato Dippers, even the Piri Piri Sauce was mild.
Our main courses were also thoroughly enjoyable, first up Leah ordered The Menace Burger with a side of Chips & Corn Cob whilst Lewis ordered The Big Bad Cob with a side of Chips & Corn Cob. It wasn’t long before the kids had empty plates as their meals were delicious.
ClearlyDaddy and I ordered our meals with a full intention of sharing them, but we couldn’t as they were so lovely. ClearlyDaddy ordered the Grilled Chicken & Bacon Salad with a Lemon & Herb Dressing whilst I ordered the Spinach & Ricotta Lasagne.
With much excitement from the kids we finally reached the time for puddings, Lewis ordered the Chocolate Brownie with Vanilla Ice Cream whilst Leah ordered the Tricky Minnie Doughnuts with Chocolate Dip and Crackling Candy. Full up from my meal I decided to skip pudding but ClearlyDaddy was more than happy to treat himself to a pudding from the normal menu of which he had the Oreo Cookie Pie, ClearlyDaddy let me try a bite and it was delicious!
All in all we had an absolutely lovely visit to Brewers Fayre, the food was lovely, the service was superb and the atmosphere great. We enjoyed our meal at a value of £35 including drinks which was amazing, we shall certainly go back again in the near future.
