The Fishers Pond

Tonight was our weekly Wednesday night out, and after finding the pub we were heading to for dinner closed, we decided to go to The Fishers Pond in Colden Common.  It used to be a Brewers Fayre and we know they usually serve reasonable sized portions of good ‘pub grub’.  When we arrived though we found that it now seems to be a privately owned pub.  The menu looked good though and we were hungry! 

The sun had decided to grace us with its presence this evening so we chose a table outside alongside the pond and watched the baby ducks and cygnets swimming around with their parents.  I had a Hunters Chicken for my main course and it was delicious – very nicely flavoured and a good sized portion.  They also happily swapped one of the items off the meal at my request with no problems.  We then treated ourselves to Chocolate Brownie for dessert and it was lovely.  Very nice rich chocolatey flavour, and had a nice homemade taste to it rather than some mass produced product they’d just warmed in the microwave. Our bill came to about £25 for 2 courses each and a drink which seemed good value.

We’ll happily go back again, although I expect it is very popular on a nice sunny day or a weekend, especially being so close to Marwell, and having the beautiful views over the water.
