For Papa's birthday, the fam clan took a trip to Haighton Manor!
What a spectacular place - WOW the outside is like a castle & the inside is beautifully done.
I did check the menu before to illuminate stress. With my migraines being bad & tiredness I knew any menu difficulties would tip me over the edge!
Luckily they had sweet potatoe fries & sorbet!!
Which is heaven to me when eating out! Nobody seems to do the two of these.
So I order a side salad to start ( thinking it would be a small, boring salad- however I was so wrong! I got the biggest bowl ( a Sophie sided salad ) which I was happy about! And the ginger chuntney I pinched off Mama's plate was super yummy.
I then had sweet potatoe fries & chunky chips ( just to switch it up a little !! ). I also ordered veg not buttered just steamed. Now I did only get kale and leafy greens which made me think all their veggies were already prepped in butter so therefore I couldn't have any proper veg.
However this is the only area they really fell down on.
Then to finish - despite being SO full, I had, had my eye on the coconut sorbet throughout the whole meal.
I first had coconut sobert in a French Cafe in Vegas and I recreated it in my United Tastes Of America book.
Not many places in England seem to serve it so to find it was rare!! So full or not I had to grasp this opportunity and I am so pleased I did. It was the best dish of the meal!
So I thank you Haighton Manor for you great service, DELICIOUS food and gorgeous atmosphere.
And of course thank you to the fam clan for another lovely night !
Finally happy birthday Papa for tomorrow!
And if you get the opportunity please try Haighton Manor.
Love and peace xoxo
