This Sunday, Tom and I headed out to The Grazing Goat in Highfield, Southampton, for a proper English roast dinner. After all, what else are Sunday’s made for?!
I’d heard about this place from a friend and had also been told that they get super busy, so we made sure we booked a table a few days before. And it was a darn good job we did, because it was packed.
We got there a bit early and headed over to the bar for a drink before sitting down for lunch. Excuse the ropey photos, I was using my iPhone and was too hungry to focus!
The Grazing Goat has been really well styled. It’s got a very modern, funky restaurant/pub feel. A mix between the Chilworth Arms and The White Horse in Otterbourne. I really like it, and am glad that they’ve got something like this just down the road from me now!
I think they have a different lunch and dinner menu, as I recall on their website they had a chicken, ham and leek pie, which is my most favouritist of foods ever, and it wasn’t on this lunch menu. But no bother, as I was there for a roast anyway.
And what a delicious roast it was! A huge Yorkshire Pudding, crispy potatoes, loads of beef and a nice variety of vegetables.
We finished it all off with a chocolate brownie, which I didn’t have time to photograph because I was sharing it with Tom and he would have eaten far more than his 50% share if I had faffed around taking pictures! I only share if it’s 50/50!
