Advantages: A delicious meal; Wicked Meat and a good choice of vegetables; Cheap
Disadvantages: Dehydrated carrots!
We used to eat in the Three Crowns when we lived in Erdington but last year we moved to the other side of Birmingham and haven't been back but it was a proper nice carvery so when we were in the area today me and my dad went in for Sunday dinner.
The carvery was about £6.00 today because it's Sunday but it's usually loads cheaper and I think an adult carvery is about £3.50 in the week, it might have gone up since but it's always been known as cheaper than anywhere else round here so I bet it hasn't gone up much. We used to go in loads when we lived over there because when my mum was pregnant the smell of cooking made her sick so we came here at least 3 times a week and it was a proper meal for less than a Mcdonalds meal would be.
You get 3 lots of meat and today it was turkey, beef and gammon but sometimes I've been in there when it's proper pork instead of the gammon and one time they had lamb but it wasn't that nice and I think they've stopped doing that now. The meat is all wicked and I don't like too much meat on my plate but I always have a slice of all of them because they are all cooked perfect and so tender they don't take no effort to eat.
They've got loads of choice for vegetables and potatoes but I wish they did mash like the other carvery down the road does. I don't like the carrots here because they are always hard and going back today after 12 months I can see they haven't got any better and were proper dried out. The white cabbbage and cauli cheese is wicked in here and so are the roasters because they are so soft and fluffy inside but have that taste when they've been cooked in the meat fat. You can go up again for vegetables and potatoes but the carvery is filling so you probably won't need to.
You get a yorkshire pudding and ball of stuffing with your carvery and they're always nice but the yorkshire puddings are too big and take up half the plate.
You help yourself to gravy and sauce out of the big urns and there is always beef and poultry gravy. I like the poultry one best but there was a skin on it today and that put me off so I had the beef one and it was nice and proper meaty and thick. I had a bit of cranberry sauce for the turkey and horseradish for the beef and I liked both of them but the cranberry one is best because there are loads of whole cranberries in it and they are proper tangy and juicy.
I wasn't that hungry when we went in but I filled my plate and ate it all it was that nice.
Summary: A Delish Carvery For A Very Cheap Price. The One Thing I Miss From The Old House!
