Your favourite family dining pub The Virginia Ash in Henstridge is back in action and getting used to being inundated with happy, hungry guests again...
"The flood we experienced at little while ago turned out in the end to be a bit of a 'blessing in disguise' as it gave us the opportunity to do some renovations to the Virginia Ash. Now that we are fully open for August dining why not pop down and enjoy a lovely meal in our new look dining and lounge areas?
We have a new 'Warm Grey' colour scheme with sumptuous grey carpets and beautiful wooden floorboards and the walls have been picked out in three (not 50) shades of grey".
We are open for breakfast, lunch and dinner, seven days a week. Breakfast is served from 7.30 to 10.30am for anything from a bacon sandwich to a Full English!
In addition to our main menu our Lunchtime 'Lighter Bites' menu is proving very popular for our guests with slightly smaller appetites, with baguettes, paninis and light meals available from 12noon till 2.15pm Monday to Saturday. And don't forget our delicious Sunday Lunches with three portion sizes available, served from 12noon till 6.30pm every Sunday.
We pride ourselves on being a 'Family Dining' pub. Children are welcome here and can choose from their own menu. We even have childrens portions of our Sunday Roast Dinners. Of course children can always choose from our main evening menu and our lighter bites menu, but its nice for the younger ones to have their own!
