Sunday Carvery at Park Regis Birmingham
Park Regis Birmingham’s 1565 Restaurant has launched a Sunday Carvery menu which is available between 1pm and 3pm each Sunday. I was lucky enough to secure a table for two at the invitation of Park Regis for Father’s Day and took my dad along as my plus one.
I greeted the restaurant manager on arrival and he quickly instructed one of his team to show us the layout. I know they would normally just explain where the things are without a walkthrough but they know I want photos. As its Father’s Day my dad is offered a complementary pint of Heineken and I have a lemonade.
There’s a soup of the day (Sweet Potato Soup) and salad bar for starters, followed by a carvery area where you build your own carvery. Now comes a blogger issue: I’m never going to be able to make my food look as good as a skilled chef, so ladeling my own soup or in this case getting dad to ladle it means it is already messy.
The Sweet potato soup however is lovely! And I fill a plate with salad to accompany it. Pretty summery I’d say. I could have had three bowls of it!
We move on to the carvery which for dad is the main event. He’s off getting his traditional plate of food and he’s very very happy when he returns with it. He’s already polished off a pint of Heineken and another has appeared to be consumed with his mains. I get another lemonade.
At this point I become a bit of a rule breaker. I’m not really a veggie person and I don’t really eat traditional Sunday menus. The carvery server is a dab hand with with a carving knife and cuts me some great pieces of turkey, and I’m then having the veggie pasta, with some carrot and swede mash plus some pigs in blankets. I’m sure you dear reader, like everyone in the restaurant think I’ve gone stir crazy, but they are too polite to mention this. I was pretty happy with my choices.
Puddings! There’s a few puddings to choose from dad has Gateaux of the Day (Black Forest) and I have a Raspberry and white Chocolate Trifle.
I’m very happy with this choice. My trifle was dreamy!
We were in and out in just over seventy minutes and its pretty strange to be able to have three courses in that time but when they are all there to pick from (apart from the pudding) then this is a very swift option.
Competitively priced at £14.95 (Excluding Drinks) this three course menu is sure to catch quite a few eyes around the city.
We thanked the restaurant manager and went off into the afternoon very full and pretty happy indeed!
