Is there such a thing as a perfect traditional Sunday Lunch? I mean, of course, it’s personal preference, but, this. This right here in front of you, that I ate, was a thing of pure yummy beauty. Plus, could the setting BE anymore, well – Perfect.
I’d like to introduce you to Wrangham House. It gives me great pleasure in saying that this magnificent house is only a 15 minute car journey away from my town, set within the quaint little village of Hunmanby. Hunmanby may ring a bell with some of you, as it is also home to Piebald Inn, which I featured last month, but today, today I’m bringing you the newest instalment to my #sundaylunchtour and it’s a good one.
Now, if you know me and have read my previous Sunday Lunch posts, you’ll know that starters aren’t normally something that I/we order. Preferring to save our space for the main meal and expensive part. And if there is space afterwards (sometimes, sometimes not!), then a portion of sticky toffee pudding is generally consumed. – However, on this occasion, we both chose a starter. More so because my husband was completely in awe of how good the traditional prawn cocktail sounded. I chose the parma ham and melon on a bed of crisp salad.
Upon our starters arriving we couldn’t have been more in awe of the presentation, also that of the size of the portion of the traditional prawn cocktail my husband had in front of him. Sometimes places can be a little less giving on the quantity of prawns, but this was packed. With starters more so, it’s always good to see time, care and attention to detail made in the presentation. With them both tasting amazing, we were truly looking forward to our main course and what was in store.
If you’ve followed my #sundaylunchtour you’ll know that I always choose beef and that my husband generally does too and this was no different. Labelled on the menu as roast sirloin of beef, we, of course, were both sold and were not disappointed. As always, it was nice to see that our plates arrived with just the good stuff on and a good portion size and slices at that! The seasonal vegetables and roasties came separate and after our starters, we really we grateful for the small portion of them, as we struggled. We struggled badly. BUT we did finish! The beef was perfectly cooked and the gravy was rich and more home cooked tasting than some places.
Now, I regret to inform you that, I just couldn’t man a desert. I know. I am so angry with myself. We even sat for a little while to see if I could squeeze it in, which I’m sure I could have after some time, but, I would have turned green with being so full. Even sitting there and seeing the sticky toffee pudding come out for another table made me want it so bad, but I just.Couldn’t. It looked so good though.
With being such a beautiful house and setting for such a traditional Sunday Lunch, I just had to record a little tour for you. It is short, but I’m sure you wont disagree on its beauty.
