A few months ago now after a day at the beach, we were heading back towards York in need of food. When we drove through a village called Stamford Bridge which is close to York. We found the Three Cups in Stamford Bridge. I think we had a couple of moments to have a look at the menu before they stopped serving food as it was around 9 pm. The food which we choose was of a very high standard that we decided that we would return to in the future.
A couple of weeks ago now we actually made the returning visit. As we were child-free for the night and looking for somewhere to have some high-quality food. We knew this is something which would find at the Three Cups in Stamford Bridge. As you can see from the menu they do have a vast array of food which you can choose from. All of which is cooked fresh when you order as you would expect. One thing which I would state is the food is not that expensive. I think for a two-course meal for two it came to around £40 this included drinks.
I choose to have the pate as a starter which is something that I am highly fond of anyway. It came with a small amount of toasted bread. Which of course was delicious I managed to spread it over the bread. However as with pate when you have eaten it you wish there was more. This something which I really enjoy. This for sure is something which I would have again if I returned. I think it might have been what I had on my initial visit as well.
Joe had a prawn cocktail which is something that I am not a huge fan of anyway. However, this did make me jealous because I think for sure I could have had this. It looked like it had the right amount of sauce this is something which I find rare when you order a prawn cocktail. Usually, you get either a large number of prawns and a lack of sauce or the other way around. This is for sure one which he would recommend as it is the second time he has had this from this pub. I think if we returned it may be something which I order because of how nice it does look. Which say a lot because I really do like the pate.
Burgers are something which a lot of restaurants/pubs serve. It can be hard to find one which is of high quality with succulent meat. This is for sure something which you can find at the three cups. As you see the size of the burgers are large enough that they should fill you up. For example Joe who can eat so much found this filling. Even if I did steal his onion ring which was amazing as it was made with proper onion which means that it was so fresh. I think I could just have consumed a bowl of them on their own and not even been sorry. This is something which most people would enjoy no matter if they are a picky eater or not.
I on the other hand fancied something different. This is why I choose the salmon as it is a dish which I do not have often. This came with potatoes and vegetables and a lovely sauce which I can not remember what it was at all. This is something which I would recommend. If you are someone who does not always want something so filling like a burger. Of course, this is a little bit more of a healthy option. I think this for sure is something which I would have again in the future should I be returning to this restaurant. We can not comment on the drinks because of the fact that we both had a pint of coke.
This for sure is a place which we would visit again due to the fact that we have had great service both times we have been. The food had been of amazing quality which made up really want to go back I think there is still so much which I still want to try on the menu. This means that I am going to have to go back there I think this meal actually only cost us around the £40 mark and this was for drinks and a two-course meal. I know that the vintage inn is a chain so I might have to visit some of the other branches.
Have you been to a Vintage Inn for food?
