We’re on a bit of an eating out phase at the moment. It’s almost like we’ve been hibernating all winter and are now ready to emerge into the culinary delights of Oxfordshire. Last weekend, we headed to The Milk Shed, Weston-on-the-Green. We’d been before, many moons ago, when they just sold ice cream. We stumbled across it by accident during an afternoon of driving around, trying to find somewhere to live! The Milk Shed looks a bit different now and the menu offers breakfast, lunch, cakes and platters.
I opted for the ricotta pancakes with banana and maple syrup. I’ve never had ricotta pancakes before so wasn’t sure what to expect. When they arrived, I was disappointed to find icing sugar sprinkled over the pancakes. I’m not sure why I would want sugar on my syrup, but I’ve noticed a few different places sprinkling icing sugar over cakes and desserts. Trust me, it’s not needed! I was also disappointed to find that the maple syrup had been poured over already, and not served in a cute little jug. It’s just a personal preference of mine. I would have preferred a bit more banana too. The pancakes were delicious though. Slightly crispy on the outside, slightly gooey in the middle. Just how I like them. I pretty much inhaled them in minutes!
The service was good and the place has a nice feel to it. They also sell the ice cream that they make there as well as a few other deli bits and pieces. My OH had the bacon sarnie and was really impressed with it, so I think it’s fair to say we’ll be going back there! There’s plenty of parking on site, which is a bonus and saves you have to pay out tons of cash like you would in Oxford. Definitely worth a visit.
