Who’d a thought it – Restaurant Review, Glastonbury, UK

Before the 2013 festival I visited the town of Glastonbury. It is a lovely town with the amazing Tor and Glastonbury Abbey – both of which are well worth seeing if alone for the very good visitors centre with Abbey reconstruction model. (don’t forget to pick up some Glastonbury Mead while you are at the Abbey. Anyway, hunger set in and a quick consulting of the TripAdvisor iPhone App lead me to “Who’d a thought it” a pub with an unusual name but a great reputation online.

The menu was excellent and I opted for the 3 varieties of Sausage with Mash and red wine gravy – I was in heaven. The Sunday Roast looked great too served with Yorkshire Pud and gravy. The desserts were wonderful so make sure you leave some room for those – the Apple crumble especially.

What I liked about the restaurant was the atmosphere, it was a local pub, but it felt like a really good restaurant.  I also liked that Who’d a thought it allowed dogs into the establishment. This was my first glimpse into how the UK is so Dog Friendly (Something which bars and restaurants in Ireland could learn from – I still don’t understand why there are so few Dog Friendly locations in Ireland.)

This was a really nice place to eat with a lovely atmosphere.

If I’m ever back in in the area again I will be visiting “Who’d a thought it !”
