lunch at the roebuck …. i think i found the one place to stay with

Had lunch at a really nice pub today.  Wife wanted to go and see if the new owners had really improved on the previous.
It was once very popular, reasonable prices and good food etc.  Then she said that the owners who were getting on in ears were tired and sold out.
The new owners changed the menu and tried to go in some kind of youth direction, which I guess is okay as long as you can maintain standards. Which apparently they didn’t because first of all, in spite of what it says here on their site, they aren’t exactly in the heart of the city. But they are close enough to walk to it.
Well, that set of new owners went bust as their customer base fell off.  They had other problems as well and word went out.  Another set of owners came in and they too went the way of the first.  So after being closed for some time, yet another set of people came in and WOW!
Wife said a few ppl told her about it and she was interested to see. In past years and now I’m referring to the original owners, she tells me she and her mom or other friends from the village, would meet there once a week.
Anyway .... had lunch here today and it was AWESOME!  They even lowered the music to a point where it really was background, without being asked. They did that as soon as the place started to fill, which it did within 10 or 15 minutes of us getting there.

Service could not possibly have been better or quicker. There was not a long wait for the food either, which was piping hot. Really,really looking forward to going back next week if not sooner. But next for sure.  I’d like to work my way down their menu but for one problem.  I tend to stay with the things I find that I enjoy.
However, I think I’ll make an exception here.  As the place started to fill, with btw an awful lot of very old people, I saw things like their Roebuck Cheeseburger and chips. Someone else had what looked like ham and eggs but the way it was served made me wish I’d ordered that as a side.
LOL.  Can you imagine ham & eggs as a side to what I had, which was,

Spinach and Ricotta Cannelloni

The Roebuck is no more then approx. 10 minutes away from our front door. Wish they opened earlier and served breakfast. We were there at noon, when they open for lunch.

Click on the roebuck above and read the rest and for the menu. Not overdone fancy.

Not that very many people ever read this far down, but this blog was the creation of Allan Kelly and his friend Vilmar. Vilmar moved on to his own blog some time ago, and Allan ran this place alone until his sudden and unexpected death partway through 2006. We all miss him. A lot. Even though he is gone this site will always still be more than a little bit his. We who are left to carry on the BMEWS tradition owe him a great debt of gratitude, and we hope to be able to pay that back by following his last advice to us all:
  1. Keep a firm grasp of Right and Wrong
  2. Stay involved with government on every level and don't let those bastards get away with a thing
  3. Use every legal means to defend yourself in the event of real internal trouble, and, most importantly:
  4. Keep talking to each other, whether here or elsewhere
It's been a long strange trip without you Skipper, but thanks for pointing us in the right direction and giving us a swift kick in the behind to get us going. Keep lookin' down on us, will ya? Thanks.

Oh, and here's some kind of visitor flag counter thingy. Hey, all the cool blogs have one, so I should too. The Visitors Online thingy up at the top doesn't count anything, but it looks neat. It had better, since I paid actual money for it.
