Biographical Info

Nothing out for dinner so we thought we’d have a meal at the Marburg Pub. Just out of interest, did you know that the original building was a single story structure? Well it was until old mate’s wife insisted he get back on the tools and add an extra story.

It’s always an absolute pleasure to get out and absorb some good country hospitality and because one of our fans recently reminded me that we need to get out to Marburg, I thought we’d better get on it. There’s a lot of history surrounding this pub but today it’s all about the tucker.

The first thing we had to do was solve a dilemma. You see, there was a salad on the specials board that we both wanted to try and it came highly recommend by more than one member of staff. We couldn’t both have it (well we could but it wouldn’t be much of a review if we didn’t try some of the other stuff on the menu), so we ordered that particular salad as a side dish. Problem solved!

So let’s talk about that salad first. It was a roast sweet potato and spinach salad with goats cheese, pecans and pomegranate molasses. It was sensational! It had elements that were sweet and acidic as well as crunch; so flavour and texture. I was very impressed! The staff told me that if we wanted to add a protein (meat), they were more than happy to dice something up and toss it through. The popular choice for this at the pub was the pork steak, but if it were me I’d be wanting to see some pork belly perhaps. I think that would be next level. But hey if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.

Entree was a simple bruschetta with grilled Turkish bread , onions , tomato (Salsa) and a very pleasant balsamic vinegar.

300g Black Angus Rib Fillet with mashed potato, baked pumpkin, carrots, asparagus, cauliflower, corn on the cob and pepper sauce. They say this dish flies out the door and the Mrs tells me, by her assessment that’s very likely.

I had the Filet Mignon - tender and slightly smoky steak wrapped in bacon served rare to medium as per my request. I had a basic garden salad with a side of chips. Happy Days! How good was that beautiful piece of steak! Perfectly cooked and that little hint of smoke just added to the experience. I could not have been happier. Add to that a sensible serve of chips and salad and I definitely got my money’s worth.

So a big thanks to Mark Boyes for reminding us to pop out and investigate. It was a bloody good feed.

Anyway folks that’s it for this week. We’ll get something else across the pass to you next Sunday. Till then eat well.

Oh I almost forgot.
