Arriving at Flaming Grill we were instantly struck by its cosy and welcoming atmosphere and with a prompt welcome from a friendly waiter we were shown to our table, given menus and told to order at the bar once we were ready. The menu was full of great choices from pub classics to BBQ feasts and Mexican grill.
This was my first time eating at the Flaming Grill so after hearing about the brand new menu it was too tempting to pass up! Being quite possibly the biggest fan of BBQ/Grill meat (it’s high in iron and vitamin B12 don’t you know?) it seemed only right I rise to the ‘Defeat the meat’ challenge and show them who’s boss.
I ordered the 24oz steak, cooked to medium and served on a sizzling plate with all the yummy trimmings you could ask for on a hungry stomach. Besides being huge, the steak was tender, juicy and cooked to perfection. Although I failed my task of defeating the meat, I thoroughly enjoyed it and would recommend giving it a try if you are up for the challenge!
Lucy decided to double up on her Inferno burger and even ask for extra jalapeños. At first glance I was slightly overwhelmed by the mega feast; immediately she decided the only way to attempt to defeat the 12oz tower of burger would be to cut it in half and take it one layer at a time. The combination of beef chilli with jalapeños and nachos gave it that extra spicy kick to a classic burger. Although she enjoyed it, she did comment that the brioche roll was a little sweet for her taste (She tends to be quite fussy!)
Two main courses down and despite feeling very full we simply couldn’t resist taking a peak at the dessert menu. Immediately our eyes turned to the epic CHOC-tastic Sundae-guilty pleasures aplenty! The indulgent sundae included a delicious warm brownie inside complimented by a light whipped cream, profiteroles topped with crunchy honeycomb pieces.
As you can see sharing between two is more than enough and certainly not for the faint hearted.
If you have a Flaming Grill pub in your area and looking for reasonably priced good pub grub, with a family friendly atmosphere I recommend you take a trip here! There is something for everyone on the menu; perfect if you are looking for a meal out on a budget with family or friends.
