Meal #56: Lunch

Steak and ale pie with mash and veg, The Chequers, Oxford, UK
Obviously, I didn’t eat the chair; however, I thought it should be included in this photo so you can absorb this English pub in all its’ charming glory. The pie was salty, beefy and slightly sweet from the ale in the gravy. The pastry was crisp, tender, and flaky. Surprisingly, the veg was very good- not overcooked, just perfectly steamed. The mashed potatoes could’ve used a little more love, but overall this was a very pleasing lunch. The cask ale was a perfect accompaniment. It’s bitter-caramel notes complemented the pie nicely.
