Dinner at the Rutland Arms, Wanganui, New Zealand

We've spent the past few days in Wanganui, New Zealand. Not the most happening of places, but as I grew up here (and the remainder of my nuclear family still lives here) I visit now and then! On Saturday night seven of us, ranging in age from seventy-something to nine, enjoyed dinner at the Rutland Arms. The Rutland used to be a fairly rough and tumble pub but has gentrified in recent years and now offers brekkie, light meals, dinner and accommodation. Cosy and civilised. I didn't take photos of everyone's meals, but here are Andrew's and mine:

He had:

Bratwurst sausages served on creamy potato
mash with mushy peas and brown onion gravy

She had:

Slow braised New Zealand lamb shank
served with roasted garlic mash, seasonal veges,
roasted button onions and a rich lamb jus

Delicious! We were too full to eat a whole dessert each so we shared:

Chocolate mousse cake served with Kapiti vanilla
bean ice cream, and garnished with berry couli and cream

Great ambiance and wine list too. A nice spot for a family night out.
