Hungry Horse

Last night me and my boyfriend (Andrew) went to the Gypsy Queen in Sheffield which is a Hungry Horse pub. I've been to the Hungry Horse chain restaurants in a few different places, (Northampton, North Wales and the Gypsy Queen once before) and I'm never disappointed. For the price I find them very good quality and very good portion sizes, if like me and Andrew you fancy a challenge the "Big Plate Specials" are definitely what you want. He ordered the Ultimate Big Sizzler (£13.99) and I ordered the Big Bombay Banquet (7.99) with Chicken Tikka Masala as the curry. The Big Sizzler was a little more expensive due to the amount of meat!

 Mine included: pilau rice, chips, naan bread, poppadoms, tomato & onion salad, mango chutney, yoghurt & mint dip, onion bhaji, samosa, pakora and a spring roll.
Andrew's had a 5oz* rump steak, chipotle chicken skewer plus half a rack of BBQ ribs and southern fried chicken goujons and chips. It should also have peppers, onions, grilled tomato, corn on the cob and onion rings but Andrew's super fussy.

How after all that we squeezed in a dessert I'll never know, but we couldn't resist! Warm Chocolate Fudge Cake was amazing but we could barely move afterwards. There are loads of desserts to die for as well as the Fudge cake.

They also do a lunch and breakfast menu, I haven't tried either but I would love to as they look so tasty.

Hungry Horse is one of my favourite chain of restaurants, in my opinion miles better than Wetherspoons. And there is one opening in Rochdale tomorrow, which is quite close to me at home, I can tell where I'll be spending my summer!

Thanks for reading
