Hi Dog pals,
It sure has been a while since Hum took me on an adventure but she made up for it by taking me to not one but two excellent eateries for me to tell you about.
I LOVES 1st Class travel with Virgin Trains ‘cos they bring complementary food and drink for us and during the week they have my absolute favourite – a super tasty sausage roll 🙂
We were staying with Hum & my friend Glenn in a place called Ealing and on the evening we arrived Hum had managed to find a dog friendly pub for us to eat at not too far away.
We went to The Weir Bar @ at Brentford and very good it was too! I got a super welcome from everybody and we were shown to a lovely table in the bar area (where us four-legs are allowed).
I was brought a bowl of water before either Glenn or Hum got their drinks – so dog pals they treat us well. Glenn & Hum had some Irish Rock Oysters to start and raved about how good and fresh they were. I is not allowed them but never mind ‘cos I was waiting for the main course my friends.
For the main, the humans ordered the Sharing Chateaubriand which they did share with me and my oh my that was super special!!!! Chateaubriand is a wonderful dish – a large piece of exquisite steak perfectly cooked just the way I like it – rare/medium rare. The Chateaubriand at The Weir is superb so my friends if you get the opportunity DO take your humans to The Weir Bar and make sure they order the Sharing one.
Next day we visited Hum’s granddaughters and had a walk in Chiswick Gardens @ where the Chinese Light Festival was set up for Chinese New Year. We even found a display celebrating Chinese food ingredients – check the photo above. The Chinese Light Festival will look spectacular on Chinese New Year when it is all lit up!
Our next eatery was for Sunday Lunch and this time we went to The Bulls Head @BullsHead which faces the River Thames. We had a nice walk along the river to work up an appetite for dinner. And dog friends we did need an appetite!
Sunday lunch at The Bulls Head is plentiful! BIG portions of deliciousness. Hum had the 3 roasts dinner (greedy Hum – but she was sharing with me) and Glenn had the 8 hour slow roast rib of Irish beef.
Service at The Bulls Head was excellent. We were put at a lovely table with a view of the river for Hum and tucked away so I had a lot of space to lie down.
The staff were lovely and made a huge fuss of me and the food was good. I particularly liked the roast turkey and the roast beef but found the pork was a little dry. Glenn’s rib of beef however was super-duper tasty! Hum said the Yorkshires didn’t seem homemade but the gravy was good and the whole meal very good value.
So if your humans are down in West London for any reason you now have a choice of 2 great eateries to take them to.
Sadly we had to leave and come back home and because it was at a weekend on Virgin trains, there was no sausage roll 🙁
So a half paw off for Virgin for no weekend sausage roll and another for The Bulls Head for dry pork/poor Yorkshires but I’d give a BIG high 5 paws for The Weir Bar!!!!!
