Il Forno Sunday Roast Menu Review

0

Autumn has well and truly landed and its the season that warrants a roast dinner and a nice glass of red wine or two. We’ve followed a pescatarian diet at home for 12 months now and allow ourselves to eat meat when we’re out and about as a treat. Balance and all that.

So, when an email landed invited myself and my forever +1 (the fiance) along to Il Forno on Duke Street to try their roast dinner offering, we happily accepted. Upon viewing the menu, sadly there isn’t a vegetarian option. You could opt for the veggie sides to form a main meal, but this one, currently, is geared towards meat- eaters.

We opted for the sharing platter for two and a bottle of house wine – red.

The sharing platter for two includes –

  • Beef Sirloin
  • Lamb Shoulder
  • Porchetta
  • Half Chicken
  • Roasties
  • Roasted Parsnips
  • Tenderstem Brocolli
  • Chantilly Carrots
  • Yorkshire Pud x2
  • Small portion of gravy per person

We also opted for a couple of sides – mac & cheese and pigs in blankets….it is autumn after all!

The roasties were light and fluffy, the parsnips perfectly soft in the middle with a slight salty taste, which added to the deliciousness of them and generous portions of meat for two. Throw a huge Yorkshire into the mix and a pot of gravy and we were onto a winner.

The mac & cheese was delicious – v cheesy, gooey and yummy. Just as expected from an Italian restaurant! Washed down with a glass of two of the house red, which was surprisingly lovely and complimented the meal well.

Despite polishing of every mouthful, it would be rude not to look at the dessert menu…. I was sold as soon as I spotted Tiramisu on the menu, and Darren went for the Chocolate Bomb. Both utterly yummy and the perfect way to round of the meal!

The sharing platter for two is £30 per person or a roast with the meat of your choice is £17.50 including the dessert of the day. Throw in a bottle of the house wine for £15 and you have a very lovely roast dinner for two for less than £50, plus drinks. A decent price for a nice meal, in a lovely setting in town. Would recommend!
