For this month’s food review, my husband and I headed to Greece without leaving Nottinghamshire! Yes, our Grecian culinary experience was brought to us courtesy of a Greek Night at The Corner House Café located within Hardy’s Farndon. Upon arrival, we were greeted with a Greek inspired cocktail of Ouzo, Cloudy Lemonade and fresh mint and shown to our table with Live Greek music playing in the background. The menu was 5 courses, all of which were traditional Greek favourites with a choice of meat and vegetarian available. To further enhance the Greek experience, the wine and beer was also typically Greek and had been selected especially for the evening by Newark based independent Wine Merchant, Ann et Vin. The 5 courses started with a selection of dips, bread and olives, all of which were delicious. Then came the giant butter beans in tomato sauce with extra bread for dipping. Next came chicken souvlaki followed by the main course of classic Beef Stifado with Greek style roast potatoes and green beans. The beef was deliciously tender and the dish itself was so well seasoned and well presented. The meal was brought to a close with a selection of Greek desserts served with ice cream. The team at Hardy’s Farndon are experimenting with a number of different formats to appeal to both existing and new customers and also demonstrate the quality of the food they are able to prepare fresh on site. This was my first experience of eating in at the Corner House Restaurant but now I have, I will definitely be back and may even pick up a few items from the Farm Shop on the way through. The Corner House Café is open 7 days a week serving a range of food to eat in and takeaway. They are dog friendly, have plenty of outside seating and cater for all dietary requirements.
