So Bar + Eats – Knaresborough

For the second year running, we arranged an ‘open table’ for friends and family at So! Bar & Eats, Knaresborough, the weekend before Christmas. A chance to catch up and either drink or eat. Or both. And be merry, of course.

It’s worth joining So! Bar’s (e)mailing list or at least keeping an eye on their website as they often have offers on for say, 50p off a pint of such-and-such a real ale, or a complimentary bottle of wine when you order two meals, etc.

Scoobie snacks – made us run around like fun lovin criminals

There’s a good choice of real ales (Roosters and Wharfedale blonde – both local brewers -were among those on tap on this occasion), and wines; service is really friendly, helpful and efficient and the food’s great (we were a mixed party of vegetarians and meat eaters).

Following Scooby-doo Pye’s example from last time, I had a Scoobie today, of the sloppy gonzales variety: flour tortillas with toasted chilli beef, cheese, red onion, and sour cream and extra chillies, served in slices so you can easily share (…if you must) @ £7.95.

Mini burger selection – sharing platter

Big K and B had a sharing slider @ £11.95 – a selection of baby burgers including baby pulled pork, baby sticky chicken, beef rendang, posh burger and Mexicana chicken served with fries and coleslaw. Very tasty too.

The 5 a day burger @ £8.25 proved popular with N: a falafel burger with houmous, mixed salad and spinach tossed in pesto and dukkah, while K had a yankee burger @ £10.95 (beef burger with smoky bacon, cheese, pulled pork, tomato, onion, leaves, dill pickle and BBQ sauce served with fries and coleslaw) and a side of enormous onion rings @ £2.95.

Others in our party thoroughly enjoyed different varieties of scoobies, burgers, salads and grills.

Great venue not to mention food and drink. So will this new tradition continue next Christmas…
