I love a good steak so I was chuffed to be invited along to the newly-refurbished Rusty Cutter Beefeater in Bedhampton. On a rainy Saturday afternoon, I popped down the A3 to experience it for myself.
Luckily for me and my terrible ability to follow my sat nav directions, the Rusty Cutter was really easy to find as it's just a few hundred metres off the A3. When we arrived, we were warmly welcomed and seated in a comfortable booth next to the window.
After checking out the menu, I settled on the baked camembert starter. The cheese came sprinkled with garlic and served with four slices of warm, soft bread. I honestly couldn't get enough of the camembert- it was so creamy that I didn't want it to end!
For dessert, I chose the chocolate and honeycomb sundae which was packed full with yummy brownie and honeycomb bites. The perfect way to end my meal!
Of course a restaurant isn't all about the food. The mood and ethos makes a huge difference and the Rusty Cutter had a great, relaxing atmosphere. I loved the quirky elements of humour, with cow puns galore and cute faux taxidermy.
Every member of staff I encountered was polite and helpful, making sure we were ok at every possible opportunity. It really makes a difference having such great- and fast!- service, and made the whole restaurant feel warm and friendly.
I had a great time at the Rusty Cutter. I definitely recommend it to anybody in the area and will certainly be returning!
