I was invited to take my family to the relaunch press event at The Warren, Wokingham where we were kindly #gifted a meal and drinks for me review and for us to enjoy whilst also having a look at the pubs new refurb. If fact we were extremely honoured as we were the first people to ever dine in the newly decorated restaurant. We arrived at 6.30pm when the pub opened, which was a real treat for my little one as it was approaching normal bedtime, but on this occasion was allowed to stay up for a treat – we were all made extremely welcome.
After getting our drinks from the bar we settled next to one of the roaring open fires (my idea of heaven), where we were then presented with a selection of delicious canapés, which the pub serves during certain event occasions. There was also live music and to be honest I could have just stayed next to the open fire all night!
We then headed to the pubs restaurant, discussed menu options with our waitress, (there was a lot of choice) and ordered our food. A bucket of crayons and colouring sheets were brought to my little one, which we always appreciated in any restaurant, whilst we are waiting for food.
I had a sharing platter to share with my little one and my husband tried the baked brie. For mains I had the rack of lamb, my husband had the belly pork and my little one enjoyed the sausage, mash and peas. Us adults were full after our mains so sadly declined pudding however my little one tucked into a chocolate brownie and ice cream which was a success! All the food was delicious and the pepper and aubergine with my lamb was just incredible.
We have eaten at The Warren, Wokingham a couple of times previously, pre-child and always in the summer and have always enjoyed the food. We have never been with a child however and were all made extremely welcome and nothing was too much trouble. The new decor created a great ambience with the lighting, furnishing and the pub certainly felt warm and cosy, perfect for colder days. We look forward to returning to The Warren, Wokingham in the not too distant future.
