Valentines Day before children was always a day where I would receive a little gift or a box of chocolates.
Once you have Children though for us certainly it became a little more special, time apart from the kids for Date Nights seems quite impossible but now the older 2 are at school we try to do Day Dates.
Beefeater kindly asked us to come and have Valentines with them and it was lovely.
We headed to The Long Reach at Whitstable and as with nearly all Beefeaters it has had a fantastic uplift with beautiful new decor. We were sat in a lovely romantic booth seat table for 2, not squished at all which I am always very pleased about.
The waitress kindly suggested a couple of things from the menu and we decided to really splurge and enjoy a fantastic 3 courses, in fact we snuck in a sharing bread as an appetizer, they have 3 to choose from and the Flatbread was delicious.
The great thing about Beefeater is all their staff are trained in Steak and Wine, so although the prices mean that even on the tightest budget you are going to get amazing food.
We decided to go with what Beefeater do best and each have a yummy steak, which can come with your choice of chips, I always go for the Triple Cooked, even better they are unlimited so you can keep chatting away and enjoying the chips. What is great is they bring your extra Steak Sauces out on a sharing platter so we could do just that, although I didn’t really want to share my Steak Jus as it is AMAZING.
Beefeater even offer Mussels which we saw another couple sharing, so the choice is there for all palates, also very romantic, well if like my Hubby he is a sharer.
We didn’t get to enjoy the wide selection of wines (darn school, runs) but we did romantically have some of their freshly made Shakes which were so creamy.
Obviously no romantic meal can not have desserts, they have a list of over 15 indulgent choices, we decided to choose a different one each so that we could each have a bit and both were homemade and amazing, rich chocolate melt pudding and an amazing huge Bakewell tart.
Our meal was just perfect, amazing food, incredible service, perfect setting for us to enjoy some real-time as a couple, I would recommend to anyone and what more Beefeater are offering a great Say It With Steak deal, 3 courses for just £19.99, go make a booking and treat yourself this Valentines and let’s be honest if you can not get a babysitter the great thing about Beefeater is you can take the kids along with you and make it fun for you all.
Disclosure – We were compensated for part of the meal but all opinons are our own, it was amazing.
