It was our 3rd wedding anniversary yesterday, so to celebrate Dawn and I went to a Vasco Lounge Bar and Restaurant outside Rotherham, in Wickersley (it takes about 25mins to get there from ours).

It was a wonderfully pleasant evening. The restaurant is done out really well, the waitress was very plesant and attentive, and the food was very good, even better than our other haunt, Fahenheit Food!

After an appetiser of smoked mackerel pate and pickled cucumber Dawn had grilled asparagus with Parma ham and Parmesan cheese, and I had Chicken Liver Parfait, with a delicious orange marmalade. For main Dawn had the Coppice House Farm Beef Fillet with Lyonnais potatoes, creamed oyster mushrooms, french beans and mange tout with a red wine sauce and I had the Canon of Lamb roasted and served with ratatouille and thyme mash. Both were excellent! For dessert Dawn had and iced apple and honeycomb parfait, and I had the cheese board. We washed that all down with a glass of wine, and a coffee.

All in all it was a fantastic meal, the only downside was it was a little pricey. At just over £70 I think they could easily loose 1 or 2 pounds of each item on the menu, and they'd probably get more repeat business. But what do I know! Anyway, if you want to experience something outside of Sheffield, give it a go.
