Autumn Family Fun and Food at Brewers Fayre

I love Autumn, the colours, the pleasant walks through the park searching for conkers and  the evenings snuggled up together on the couch, oh and definitely the food...

We were delighted to be invited to our local Brewers Fayre to enjoy a family meal from their new Autumn menu. Our nearest Brewers Fayre restaurant is the Coach House, in the grounds of the Trafford Centre, it's an ideal location and an ideal family treat after a morning of shopping.

Brewers Fayre Autumn menu review

The large family friendly restaurant also offers a special Dennis the Menace themed, supervised play area with everything from toddler zones to tree house play and more. This does incur an extra charge of £3 for 90 minutes play. Both our 4 and 8 year olds thoroughly enjoyed this area and would happily have missed out on pudding to have a few minutes more play!

Much to the children's delight we were seated within the Play Zone on this occasion, the benefits of this were that we could watch the children enjoying the soft play environment while sat at our table enjoying our own food and they were free to run in and out between courses. However I couldn't help but feel that this area didn't offer the relaxed comfort of the rest of the restaurant and on future visits I think I'd opt to eat in the main restaurant and bring the children in to play separately, but that's just my personal choice.

The new menu offers a wide variety of mouthwatering options from grills and burgers to classics, pasta and more, all at really reasonable prices. We visited on a Sunday so also had the option of the two course carvery that included a choice of meats or a vegetarian option of vegetable wellington with plenty of vegetables and potatoes and a delicious tomato soup with a roll to start. All for just £9.95!

The children's menu stayed with the Beano and Dennis the Menace  theme of the play area and offered one, two or three course options priced between £3.99 and £4.99. Drinks were an additional cost but started at just 80p. There was also the option to swap any on of the sides that came with the main meals which is perfect if you have a fussy eater!

There were clean plates all round so we decided to treat ourselves to dessert, Daddy and I couldn't resist trying the Sharing Fondue which  left us drooling when it arrived! A giant plate filled with everything from mini doughnuts to chocolate brownies, waffles, strawberries and marshmallows, served with pots of chocolate fudge and caramel sauces for dipping, we couldn't wait to dig in!

Ben decided on a delicious looking ice cream Sundae and Elizabeth chose Minnie's tricky doughnuts which came with chocolate sauce and sprinkles!

 We enjoyed a lovely family meal in a comfortable setting and the service was attentive and friendly. I'd certainly recommend a visit to your local Brewers Fayre to try out the new menu.
