Having spent the morning and early afternoon at Hampton Court Palace gardens, we decided last minute not to drive home for lunch but find a local pub.. the one's closest to HCP and on the river were full (well it was touching 26c on the mercury!).. so we drove a little further towards Hampton and found this delightful Gastro pub whilst sitting in traffic!.. RESULT!. Even better that they have their own car park!
As the sun was out it would have been rude not to sit outside.. the place is not huge, but a good size, there are ample tables outside on the terrace and a little conservatory for those afraid of burning in the sun..
The staff were very friendly, lovely and quite smiley (always a good sign!).. the food menu was pretty good for a pub, with some lovely sounding dishes... you will have food envy whilst waiting for your dishes to come out!
Wifey had the Garlic & thyme roasted Chicken Caesar salad, and I went for the absolute peri-peri poussin.. they were yummy and quite scrumptious.. to top it all, one of the best CHIPS (both thin crispy and chunky) I have had for a pub lunch...
Hats-off to the kitchen and the waiting staff.. lovely to have such smiley and cheerful looking after you..It's also a relief and great to hear that the meat, seafood, cheese, veg ALL come from a local suppliers and the pub is an independent not a mega-chain..
it's very likely we will be heading back if the weather holds out or one evening for dinner...
