Eating Out: The Jolly Miller, Wrawby
AFTER almost a year with the kitchen firmly closed, a well known village pub is serving food once again.
The Jolly Miller pub in Wrawby, North Lincolnshire, has been given an extensive refurbishment after new owners took over the run-down venue earlier this year.
The cosy interior and quaint décor makes the pub a must-visit for food and drink lovers – not forgetting its mouthwatering menu, which has enough to tickle any taste bud.
On arrival, my partner and I were welcomed by friendly staff who showed us to our seat.

The inside is small and elegantly decorated which gives the place a homely feel – the home-cooked food also adds to this.
A good selection of ales was just the ticket for my partner, who opted for a pint of Tom Woods Christmas Cheer, while I was tempted by a glass of the house rose wine.
When reading the menu we were both delighted to see some quirky touches which contributed yet again to that home-from-home feeling.
Items such as, fish of the day from a local market, curry adjusted to your own heat setting and if you want more food just ask – rare additions that only the village pubs owned privately can boast about these days. To start with, I chose a prawn cocktail which came beautifully presented with bread and butter on the side.
My partner decided to warm up with mushrooms in a creamy stilton sauce, which came to the table still bubbling in the dish.
It was hard to choose a main course from the wide variety on the menu but I went with the salmon and vegetables, pictured, while my partner had torn rotisserie chicken in a creamy sauce with mushrooms and rice.
The food and service was quick and staff were attentive enough to ask if you wanted another drink once they saw your glass was empty.
To our delight there was still room for pudding and, after much deliberating, I decided to go continental and ordered the crepes.
However I could not resist tucking into my other half’s cherry crumble and ice cream as well.
After another beer, glass of wine and a Baileys to top off the night, it was time to ask for the bill – an overall price of £43.40.
It is safe to say we will be returning to this delightful hostelry and we are glad it is back up and running thanks to local businessman Mike Godfrey.
