The Langford At Lower Langford Review 23rd May 2017


The Langford At Lower Langford Review
The Langford at Lower Langford is under new management, has changed its menus and is just waiting for you to come along and try all the great things on offer. As two who know we can tell you there is a charming garden with plenty of rustic benches and umbrellas, cosy bar and relaxed restaurant, friendly and helpful staff, and if at the end of the evening you have over indulged and just want to sink into a comfortable bed, they even have en-suite rooms at your disposal.

We took advantage of the balmy evening to sample a pint in the garden before we ordered our supper; sensibly the menu has been reduced in size to cater more for freshly prepared dishes, as well as a dish of the day special. In the case of the starters this was Jenga stack tempura prawns with sweet chilli dip which got the immediate thumbs up from my companion, and from the main menu I opted for chicken liver parfait with toast, chutney and mixed leaves. To follow, this time I took the special dish of the day – Cajun chicken in paprika sauce with home-fried potatoes and salad, and hearty beer battered fish and chips were the clarion call from the other side of the table, served with triple cooked chips, garden peas and tartare sauce.

Lower Langford is a very pretty village, popular with walkers and wildlife lovers and as our starters hove into view, I could imagine that if you were one such walker, exhausted from many miles of tramping over the hills and far away, they would be just the thing to perk you up! The Jenga stack prawns piled high (the clue is in the title) were deliciously light and crisp, and I really enjoyed the rich parfait which was served with a good dressed salad.

Our main courses were excellent too and nicely presented; the paprika sauce certainly took no prisoners and I liked the potatoes which had been spiced and fried with onion and peppers. The fish and chips hit the spot but did they leave room for a dessert? Well yes, with a bit of a waddle around the garden, we came back rejuvenated to order spotted dick with hot custard, and lemon cheesecake with clotted cream, after asking for a ten minute break.

I love nursery puddings and have to report that the spotted dick was as good as my mum’s (her signature dish no less) so all in all we gave our meal ten out of ten, for cooking, content and satisfaction, the waiters and bar staff couldn’t have been nicer or tried harder and we ended the evening on a very happy note.
