So we arranged to meet some friends at the Bulls Head for a few drinks on Saturday afternoon. It ended up being a wonderfully sunny and hot day and we were fortunate enough to find a table outside. If you haven’t been to this part of town, it gets crowded, very crowded. With a wonderful view across the Thames and good company, one can only wish that the afternoon will stretch forever.
In true British fashion we were forced to enjoy a few jugs of Pimms which was refreshing and well worth the money. After a while the question came up “should we go for dinner?” and with a quick suggestion and a quick phone call to the restaurant, et’ voila we have a table booked at the not so French French restaurant.
We were offered a very nice table on the veranda of the lovely building that found its origins as a pub called the Steam Packet pub which was licensed by 1870.
There isn’t much to say about the food – 😮 its good value for money, but nothing special. All things presumed to be French and should be on a French menu like blue cheese or Camembert… saying that, I cannot complain about the food. Per my previous blog post, the setting of this restaurant is wonderful and this is one of the reasons why I find it so special. To add to my justification why I enjoy this restaurant is that its a nice relaxed place to go, when you feel lazy and not up for cooking and the house wine isn’t too bad either if you are looking for something cheap and cheerful.
I hope you enjoy this post and keep reading, there will be more coming soon.
