The Spade Oak
Restaurant in Bourne End
Traditional English Pub Restaurant
Enjoy a leisurely stroll by the Thames and finish it off with a lovely meal at a traditional pub.
A very popular setting and not the place to go if you are in a hurry but the food is well worth waiting for!
They have a good selection of traditional Ales and the food is freshly prepared and beautifully presented. Sunday roasts are very popular but be sure to book. Vegetarians will not be disappointed either.
A choice of 3 Sunday roasts start from around £8 for two courses, £10 including a traditional English pudding!
I like the sharing choices (from £10), which is great when there are a few of you. Otherwise the starters include things like sautéed king prawns; French onion soup; crabcakes to name a few, starting at around £5.
They offer a nice variety of seasonal dishes (from £9) including grilled salmon steak; Guinea-fowl, Venison steak or grilled seabass.
Then you have the pub classics (from £8) like chargrilled ribeye; beer-battered haddock; Cumberland whirl and mash potato or gammon steak and chunky chips!
They have a smallish but varied selection of wines from around the world, with glasses starting from around £3 for a Pinot Grigio and bottles from around £11. I like the fact that pretty much all of the wines are available by the glass.
They have their own car park with ample parking space.
