What better way to celebrate February, the month of love, than a romantic meal for you and your significant other at one of the most romantic places in Cheshire? We always say the best way to a person’s heart is through great food!
Our team at The Lion at Malpas have carefully selected some of our amazing gourmet comfort food menu items, that will not only tantalise your tastebuds but light a romantic spark in your evening. So, if you’re joining us for Valentine’s Day, or just treating your loved one any other day of the month, here are our recommendations for perfect romantic food in Cheshire.
Let’s start of the evening light with some nibbles before indulging in the rest of the evening. We firstly recommend trying our marinated olives. Considered an aphrodisiac in Mediterranean culture, our olives are bursting with flavour, and pair perfectly with a crisp white wine.
To begin your meal, we’d then suggest starting off with something light and refreshing. How about opting for our delicious goat’s cheese radicchio & beetroot tart paired with pomegranate, chervil, and hibiscus dressing? You could even share with your partner. Cosy up together in one of our snug corners, being warmed and lit by the fireplaces, and enjoy a taste of romance in the Cheshire countryside.
If you’re looking for a romantic main, then our duck breast is your first option! Duck is another well-known aphrodisiac, so our rich and delicious main is sure to get your heart racing. Indulge in our duck breast with mushrooms, pearl barley and cabbage taco, hoi sin, and pickled radish. A main to truly fill the heart and tummy!
If duck isn’t your thing, not to fret, as our 28-day prime Shropshire beef is sure to set your heart alight too. Our very own locally sourced, Stanley Jones 8oz prime Shropshire beef is cooked over coals, and served with thyme garlic roasted field mushrooms, and tomatoes.
Beef is always key to a gourmet romantic meal, and our prime cuts are a sure key to anyone’s heart.
We also recommend pairing our beef with our Los Espinos Merlot, Chile. An impressive Merlot plush with ripe fruit and a rare elegance, a romantic wine for a romantic meal.
Your date may be sweet enough, but we’ll bet neither of you will be able to resist our delicious dessert menu. Finish off your romantic meal with our indulgent homemade sticky toffee pudding, toffee sauce, and locally sourced Snugsbury’s vanilla ice cream. It might even be too good to share with your partner!
