🍴 What to eat at Hay-on-Wye? 🍴 β˜• πŸ• Try Oscar’s Bistro! πŸ• β˜•

So Hay Festival this year was splendid. The hour long scenic bus route was wonderful and I got chatting to some local attendees during the bus ride and I got to sit on the front seats at the top of the double-decker bus; feeling like a carefree girl of five! The ride was swift and soon I had arrived on the Welsh-English border town of Hay-on-Wye. return bus fare only a tenner.

It’s town centre is filled with a plethora of quaint, traditional cafΓ©s and bistros. This time I stumbled upon Oscar’s Bistro and popped in for the first time. (As Hay is a small town many cafΓ©s are likely to be cash only even in peak season’s.)

Whilst wandering the small streets of Hay it appears most of the places to eat serve soups, panini’s, cakes and good old-fashioned British comfort food.

Oscar’s Bistro took cash and card payment and as I am notoriously hopeless at carrying cash this made it an ideal choice. I was not disappointed. Although quite small there is seating upstairs and downstairs with tales for x4 people at a time plusΒ couple seats outside. Although I was travelling alone you’d think by the amount of food I ordered I had little urchins to feed!

The servings are gigantic compared to other British cafΓ©’s! On the top-right we have a Β£9 plate of a veggie quiche, salad, lentil/bean salad and boiled potatoes drenched in salad cream-a little too much for my liking in terms of cream…And oh yes there was coleslaw too. Great value and superb taste! I really enjoyed it and took bites of the veggie lasagne which is the centre plate dish. I was having a carbalicious feast. I was majorly overdosing on carbs like a famished soul! I’m sure other diners were looking at me like I was Little Miss Glutton! It was so worth it. I absolutely want to return. The generous servings make you feel spoilt like Royalty and the taste of the dishes are flavoursome the only thing that irked me is the excessive salad cream in the new potatoes and coleslaw.Β This was washed down with Earl Grey-disappointingly onlyΒ two small saucer cups worth of tea.

Then came the cinnamon-spiced apple cake. More apple slices than pastry but a perfectly sweet and crisp appley goodness taste.DSC_0015I would absolutely return and eat myself toΒ carb oblivion. 8/10.
