Review on The Three Acres Inn & Restaurant
Surrounded by three acres of grounds in remote moorland deep in 'Last of the Summer Wine' country at Shelley, this all-purpose pub, The Three Acres exudes old-style Yorkshire warmth, but also has its finger on the pulse. It's a fully blown foodie complex involving a restaurant, oyster bar and deli – as well as providing accommodation.
Sandwiches in the bar at lunchtime are just the beginning. The lengthy restaurant menu moves with the seasons, taking in spiced lamb samosas, mackerel fishcakes with horseradish, mint and lemon, and pot-roast guinea fowl with cider and Calvados. There are hearty Yorkshire classics, too, in the shape of steak, kidney and mushroom pie as well as homemade black pudding (served with chorizo and butter bean stew) and battered haddock with 'proper chips' and mushy peas.
A long line-up of desserts takes in everything from marmalade sponge pudding with custard to hot banana fritters in coconut batter with rum and raisin ice cream. Several real ales are on handpump, and the wine list is a reasonably priced selection of around 80 wines.
