We went to check out their new Toast to the Roast (£10) offering available at The Fable and all other Drake & Morgan establishments. Our parents were impressed with the literary references, decorations and general ambiance.
David, the Head Bartender at The Fable, welcomed us and treated us to his favourite cocktail of Vodka & White Wine – decorated with a red grape – whilst we waited for our roasts.
We had chosen a selection to be able to feedback on the beef, pork belly roast, and roast chicken options. The offer comes with options of white (cabernet sauvignon) or red (grenache) – which were crisp and citrusy, and mellow respectively.
The pork belly and the chicken were cooked well, though the chicken was slightly overseasoned. However, my beef roast was not medium as advised on ordering, but well done and had dried out – and also had lots of sinew running through parts of the three slices I got.
The Yorkshire puddings were light and crispy, and there was a lovely star anise note to the red cabbage. However, all of our potatoes were oversalted and effected the enjoyment of the meal.
In general, it is a good idea for a Sunday meal out, but will be perfect once they iron out the above creases.
