My work function has brought me this place. It is an unlikely place to talk about dessert. After all it is a pub. Although it was one of the many established pubs in Orange, it was a better known one for dessert.

I was looking forward to its steak and potatoes. I must admit, I was craving for red meat at the time. Therefore I didn’t go through the menu in detail and headed straight to the steak section. Yes, it was so un-foodie of me. It was a cold and rainy day and it took no time for me to empty my plate. I think it must be the cold and gloominess of the day made the need of a dessert seemed more apparent.  Let’s blame on the weather, shall we?

Then, the dessert galore began. The beauty of dining out in a group is variety. Thankfully, no one ordered the same dessert.  At $9 for each dessert, it was money well spent. The presentation of each dessert has its wow factor and we could not fault the dessert. They were all spoon lick’n good…and we almost cleaned the plates except for one profiteroles being left behind. Too much food…

Warm mango and chocolate swirl pudding filled with white chocolate mousse – the dessert special on the day, not on the day-to-day menu.

Steamed banana and date roulade, drizzle with a warm caramel sauce. Accompanied by vanilla ice cream. $9

If you find it challenging to settle on one of the above desserts,  you can opt for a combination plate consisting of a sample of each dessert for $18.
