We were invited last week to review the newly refurbished Beefeaters Restaurant in Luton and since we really enjoyed our meal the last time we visited, we decided to make the trip and enjoy a family meal.
It took us some time to get there as it is not near us and the drive was quite arduous because it pitched it down quite heavily all the way there and back. But the drive was well worth it.
The restaurant has undergone a refurbishment and it looks lovely. Still welcoming and warm but the decor is tasteful and modern. I don’t know about you, but decor does make a difference when I enter a restaurant. No one wants to enter a restaurant that is dark and dingy. Well, this one certainly isn’t. It is bright and airy and yet has that restaurant feel.
After, the decor, I always look at the welcome or the way we are received. We were greeted by the Manager Carl who gave us menus and activity books for the children, showed us to our table and introduced us to the staff who would be serving us.
We chose and ordered our drinks and then went on to our mains. I had realised the last time that when I ordered starters, we really couldn’t go through the mains and then have dessert so we opted for no starters.
Beefeaters serves some amazing Value Meals from Monday to Saturday so I decided to try them out instead of children’s meals. Ethan had the sausages and mash, Aeryn had fish and chips, Jadyn had the steak. Now, I must say that these value meals at just £4.99 are exceptional value for money. They are not different from the normal meals that are fully priced – they are just priced lower for lunch time from Monday to Saturday.
Hubs ordered the burger and he thoroughly enjoyed it. I had a bite and it was quite delicious. I ordered my favourite ribs as I love the Bourbon Ribs at Beefeaters. They were cooked to perfection as usual and I don’t see myself trying out anything else when I visit there. You must try the ribs if you visit.
All the dishes were served with fries or chips and you can choose from crinkle cut or thick cut and these are bottomless – you can have as many portions as you like. I would advise you though, as tasty as the chips are, don’t order too many top ups as you must leave room for dessert.
For dessert, Ethan ordered Brownie with ice-cream, Aeryn and I shared profiteroles with ice-cream from the Value Menu so these were just £2.79 each. And Jadyn had a Chocolate Melt with ice-cream. All the desserts left us licking our lips and scraping our bowls.
Hubs had a double Expresso.
Now to costs – with the value meals and the 2 for 1 on mains offer our entire bill came to about £46. That’s what I call real value as the meals and the service were great for the price, not to mention the lovely ambience.isclaimer: I was sent a voucher of £50 to review a meal with the family.
