We were chuffed to be asked back to the Maytime Inn for their new burger night just before the festive period. I don’t know about anyone else but I feel that this Christmas was been pretty packed, especially in the run-up, but we were pleased to have a spot of R&R at Maytime. When we last visited Tom particularly enjoyed the fish broth and I had a penchant for the garlic mushrooms on toast, so suffice to say, we were looking forward to our dinner.
Run every Wednesday night, the Maytime’s special menu isn’t filled with your average sloppy joes but locally sourced ingredients. Each burger is served with skinny chips and onion rings at a very reasonable £12.50 each.
I felt that the Maytime’s burger menu included some interesting options including Tom’s BBQ beef short rib with sour cream and my wild boar burger with cheddar cheese and tomato chutney. But it is was a tough choice between those and the ginger and chili pulled pork with apple sauce or the breaded fish burger with sweet chili.
It is was a real pleasure to chat with Dom to hear how the pub had evolved in last twelve months, whilst we waited for dessert. The team has opened an outdoor bar in the gardens for a spot of alfresco partying and come the summer, we’ll definitely have to head back for a glass of cold Pimms.
Despite the fact that we were probably going to be inundated with Christmas pud over next few weeks, Tom went for Maytime’s seasonal offering with candied orange and I had the pannacotta with poached pear in red wine. Both were scrumptious. I would say that Maytime’s burger would make a good candidate for the ‘Best Burger in Cotswolds’ in the Cotswold Awards.
Many thanks to Maytime for our dinner – as always opinions and taste buds are our own!
