So in our search for Best Restuarant in London we took Nunhead Mum of One's top recommendation for our Father's Day lunch today. It was a last minute booking which we made online - we looked on the menu, Nunhead Mum's favourite dish of monkfish was there, brilliant, and they did pizzas which guarantees a happy Scrap.
When we got there the waiter was charming and we chose a lovely outside table. Unfortunately the monkfish was no longer on the menu and the pizza oven had been broken for 4 months.
1 glass of house white - a lovely soft Trebbiano
2 bottles of san Pellegrino
1 starter which we shared: bresaola - very good and simply presented
1 kids spaghetti with tomato sauce - fine
1 slow roast pork - fantastically well cooked, fell apart as soon as the fork touched it, came with potatoes but no veg
1 bourrida fish stew (£15!) - pretty disappointing - so salty I couldn't taste anything and the squid was chewy
1 wonderful pistachio ice cream
1 creamy double espresso
1 fresh mint tea
You know, this is a good restaurant in a lovely riverside setting, but I think for a £68.06 lunch which included just one glass of wine, only one starter and only one pudding, it should have been a lot better. Maybe by night it is.
