Garlic Bread $4.50

Men like pies and they like pints. And apparently garlic bread too when Mr NQN immediately asks for a serve of garlic bread. It comes out as four large triangles of toasted Turkish bread. I am pretty powerless to resist Turkish bread at any time so I take a piece. It's very buttery (read: soaked in butter-yum!) but light on the garlic.

Salt and pepper squid $16

The salt and pepper calamari is very tender with a bit more pepper than salt but we balance this out at the table. It's served with a black sesame sweet chilli sauce.

Beef pie _ _$22.50 with beer

The beef pie is rich and full of large, tender chunks of meat, mushroom and onion also with a dollop of mash. It sits in a pool of rich beef jus and I enjoy spearing the pieces of beef and dunking them in the jus. You could just hug it on a cold Winter's day. With the Pie & a Pint deal you can choose between a Fat Yak, Pure Blonde, VB or Carlton Draught. Mr NQN loves the Fat Yak beer which to me smells very fruity, like a grape juice.

Fish pie $22.50 with beer

The fish pie is my favourite as it comes with a rich, creamy white wine sauce and a generous portion of fish pieces, celery, carrot and spring onion and a large dollop of mash. I pair this with a Pure Blonde as Mr NQN likes the flavour of Fat Yak. The pastry isn't bad but could more buttery.

I look across and see a big smile spread across Mr NQN's face as he surveys the boats and drinks his Fat Yak. I know I owe him many more of these moments.

So tell me Dear Reader, how do you thank your spouse or significant other? With food? With gifts?
