Unexpectedly sunny Sundays are made for a roast dinner in a pub garden – even if it is October… Plus when the views are this pretty it would be rude to sit indoors!
After a beaut stay on a boat moored near to Hampton Court Palace (blog post to come, ofc) we headed to The Albany at Thames Ditton for a sit and a dish! As it was Sunday, most of us opted for the roast menu; ordering chicken, beef and the veggie option.
The food came quickly – which considering how busy it was in the pub, was pretty impressive. I chose the roast chicken, priced at £13.95 – considering the location and the fact it was Sunday, I thought this was quite reasonable.
The roast was served with bread sauce and stuffing wrapped in bacon. There was also roast potatoes, seasonal greens and roasted roots, Yorkshire pudding and bottomless gravy. Overall this was worth the money – but me being greedy would have liked slightly more potatoes and veg!
I would definitely opt for this choice again, as the portion of chicken was large and the whole meal was really tasty! My friend chose the beef dish, which priced at £15.95 was slightly more expensive (to be expected) but we found that the portion of meat on the plate was much smaller, which was slightly disappointing; but only because it was so tasty we needed more!
One of the girls had the seared salmon dish from the menu – which looked absolutely beautiful, and was a great option if roasts aren’t your thing! The seared salmon was served on Chorizo mash, tenderstem broccoli and Bouillabaisse sauce.
All round the dishes were delicious – and I would suggest visiting on a Sunday to try these roasts and check out the amazing view over the river!
