Rose & Crown Restaurant Lunch

[IMG]

While I waited to be seated, I decided to put my time to good use by taking photos of the Lunch and Dinner menus posted outside of the restaurant…

Though I took those photos, I apparently didn’t look at the menus very closely. Otherwise I would have caught the fact that they had changed the entrée that I was intending to order…

You see folks, the last time I had lunch at the R & C (in Dec. 2013), this is what I had planned to get. But then my DD ordered it and not wanting to order the same thing I went with my usual R & C entrée, the Fish & Chips. So this time I was determined to finally try the English Breakfast Burger…but more on that later. ;)


I was seated at a two-top table outside on the deck, with a great view of the World Showcase lagoon.

It’s so nice to sit and watch the boats go by…

The one bad thing is that there was a very aggressive squirrel running around underneath all of the tables looking for dropped food.

Now nothing against squirrels, but the thought of having a rodent brush up against my legs while I’m trying to enjoy my lunch did not appeal to me at all. :eek:


But I tried not to think about it and turned my attention to the menu, starting with the beverages…

From here I chose the Cider & Black, which is Hard Cider with a shot of Black Currant Juice…

This seems more like drinking a soda than an alcoholic beverage, so I really enjoyed it! :thumbsup2

Then moving on to the food…

I love their Scotch Egg appetizer so I started my meal with that…

Scotch Egg – Golden-fried Hard-boiled Egg wrapped in Sausage Meat with Mustard Sauce


[IMG]

I had had this three or four times previously and have always enjoyed it. This time was no different. Though I’m not generally a fan of mustard, I love the combination of the mustard sauce with the sausage and hard-boiled egg. Although we have not scheduled a meal at the Rose & Crown during our upcoming trip, I might just have to stop in at the pub for a scotch egg and a Cider & Black. ;)

Ok, now for the entrees…

[IMG]

All the usuals were here…Fish & Chips, Bangers & Mash, Shepherd’s Pie, and Welsh Pub Burger. Wait, back up…WELSH PUB BURGER?!?! :eek:

[IMG]

Where is the English Breakfast Burger with the Fried Egg??? :confused3 Now I could have settled for the Welsh Burger, but disappointment apparently brings out my stubborn streak. ;) I refused to order their new burger since it was missing the egg. So what did I order instead?… :scratchin

Yep, you guessed it…Fish & Chips. But I would have been okay with this except it was not as good as usual. :sad2: Just like my salmon at Artist Point, the center of my fish was undercooked. I picked around the outside and ate some of the fries before calling it quits. When my server noticed that most of my fish was uneaten, she asked me if there was something wrong. I told her the problem and she offered to bring me another but I politely declined. I figured that was the end of it, however when she brought me the bill I saw that I hadn’t been charged for the fish & chips. This was an unexpected gesture, which I accepted and thanked her for.
