Hungry as usual a friend and I decided to try Armsby Abbey for an early dinner. Having heard from so many people it was good bar and with neither of us are big fans of bar’s we had until today steered clear. What a big mistake. The atmosphere is more classy pub/microbrewery then dirty bar and the quality of their fresh locally grown farm sourced foods was amazing.

We both took the advice of the waitress and went with the Slow Roasted 100% Grass-Fed Adams Farm Beef. It had a black pepper-horseradish Crème Fraiche and roasted radishes, shallots, Milton Creamery Prairie Breeze Cheddar, and a Bacon Vinaigrette dressed Arugula all nicely sandwiched between two slices of homemade toasted baguette. WOW was it good. I am glad I don’t work in Worcester or you would find me here every day at lunchtime.

Even though it was a generous portion I couldn’t pass on the Smore dessert I saw coming out of the kitchen in rapid succession. I was lucky enough to get the last one. It was a cupcake style chocolate cake with a burst of toasted marshmallows’ and a chocolaty ganache that was so rich and tasty it melted in my mouth.  

Everything here was great from the ambiance to the food and especially the drinks. We had a cocktail whose name I don’t recall 100% something paradise and it was delicious. I can’t wait to go back and try more of the farm sourced creations they offer.
