We headed down to the Halifax Beefeater to enjoy a family meal out before the Easter weekend. On a fairly quiet Sunday night we were surprised to wait a couple of minutes without acknowledgement from any of the staff who noticed us waiting but once we were acknowledged we were shown into the restaurant and offered a good choice of different tables. We chose to sit near the kitchen so we could see the food coming out, we liked the childrens pictures that were pinned up too. It kept the children busy and inspired them to create their own pictures too.
Having at Beefeater a number of times in the past we had an idea about the menu but we were pleased to see that the menu still offers a great range of dishes and of course that beef still features heavily.
The kids menu offers a great selection of meals and I liked that you can mix or match the courses and sides to create athe perfect meal for your kids. C opted for the Pop In Chicken and LissyLou chose the Spaghetti Bolognese, both were good size portions and good quality. The bolognese was tasty and full of meat and the chicken in C’s meal was good quality and there was plenty of it. They were both very happy with their choices.
I chose the sirloin steak and Daddy Ramblings opted for the fillet steak. Both come with either fries or chunky chips (you can even have a refill if you have room) and both were cooked medium as requested. The complimentary side salad added an extra element and really helped fill us up.
One of the great things about the Halifax Beefeater is the decor, the kids love looking at the cow that shows where each cut of meat comes from!
We were too full for puddings after our steaks but we let the kids chose their own! Again, big portions and they were thrilled with the create your own type puddings on offer. C opted for a funny face sundae – a nice scoop of ice cream and sweets to decorate whilst LissyLou went for the chocolate challenge – ice cream, marshmallows, brownie and chocolate sauce. Both were devoured!

As a family we love a family night in. Quite often on a Friday/Saturday night we curl up together and watch a movie – a sort of chill out after a long and busy week. At the moment we love Saturday Night Takeaway, guilt free family TV that makes us all laugh.
When Gracewell of Fareham offerred to send us a movie and snacks to help us enjoy a family night in we were thrilled. Not that we need an excuse but it’s always nice to be given that extra push.
We chose the live action Cinderalla movie, something LissyLou and I had seen together at the cinema but that C and Daddy Ramblings hadn’t had the chance to watch. We started our family night in with board games – always a good way to get us all together. We love the competetive aspect, well until LissyLou loses and then she cries, but that’s another story.
Then we settled down with snacks and our movie.
As often happens Daddy Ramblings fell asleep and then we all take it in turns to pause the movie and get up for loo breaks or new refreshments but we were still all together. I think that’s the most important part, being together, even if we are all engrossed in the movie.
Do you have a favourite thing to do for family nights in?

LEGO Nexo Knights Magazine
If you have a LEGO fan in your family then you may well already know about the new LEGO Nexo Knights range, but did you know that there is also a new LEGO Nexo Knights Magazine too? Well C had spotted an advert for the magazine a while ago and was already excited about getting his hands on a copy. If you haven’t heard of LEGO Nexo Knights then in a nutshell it’s a new range based on a fantasy castle theme – think sort of space age knights and you’re on the right lines.
This was his face when the first edition hit our doormat earlier this week.
The LEGO Nexo Knights Magazine comes with a LEGO Nexo Knights figure, Lance, C was particularly impressed with the food and drink accessories that came with him!
The LEGO Nexo Knights Magazine itself was a huge hit, it contains great cartoons, fun puzzles and cool info/pictures etc and would be ideally suited to both LEGO fans and boys and girls aged approximately 6-10.
The magazine will retail at approx £3.25, I think this is a bargain as each magazine comes with a free gift and the magazine is better quality than a lot of kids mags.
We would highly recommend the LEGO Nexo Knights Magazine, it’s out this week (24th February 2016), grab a copy for your LEGO fan!
