Visited June 2007
Needless to say we were all very full but for the sake of research purposes we felt we had to have one pudding and 4 forks! Out of a very yummy selection we decided on pear and rhubarb crumble served with creamy vanilla custard £4.95 We all agreed it was heaven!!! We had coffees and two house wines . Pino £10.95 and Shiraz £10.50.
Having paid the bill and presented our card we met mine host Alistair who, having done his travelling, has returned to his roots in Southampton. Together with his Mother he is working hard to make the Prince Consort a big success and in my opinion is on target so far! When I made enquiries about vegetarian options he said that as a rule they usually have 2 options but if they don't appeal they are always happy to go off menu. He also told me they aim to change 30% of the menu content monthly in order to keep it interesting for their guests plus they augment this with around 3 fresh fish dishes every weekend.
I have awarded a Yummy factor of 8 1/2, it would have been 9 but, as our regulars know, we LWL do not like all the tonic poured in our G & T's, it drowns them and one should be given a choice, picky I know but important to us! I highly recommend The Prince Consort and will be back.
Yummy Factor 8 ½ (see above)
|The higher the "Yummy" factor, the better the food & service. The higher the number of £ signs the more expensive. ( Roughly one £ sign = £5 per head )
