The Laughing Gravy London is a restaurant me and mine have been trying to get to for ages. James has already been with friends and a belated Father’s Day was all the excuse we needed. Near Waterloo station and Southwark tubes it’s a doddle for us Surrey folk to get to.
The restaurant is relaxed with a modern rustic vibe.
The bar does some quality cocktails and has cozy places to sit.
The table where you can get all ‘Chas and Dave’ between courses.
The menu is full of croud pleasers with an extra twist, such as Stone-bass with crab champ (crab mash it turns out!). It is reassuringly full of quality ingredients.
The cocktails were very pleasing and Charlotte and I were all #lovinglife.
The boys go through their usual wine picking ritual. There’s plenty of chin rubbing.
and Mum likes that, nice to try this, would go well with that.
Then the wine is app’d and discussed further.
sniffed, swirled and finally slurped.
After happily eye-rolling at the boys I’m finding myself umming, ermming and generally menu surfing to a very patient and helpful waiter.
I adore being a blogger and my family are super supportive, but one side affect is that if one of them try to grab a slice of bread before I snap a shot they get 3 others yelling ‘wait!!!’
Here’s the bit that can only be described as the glorification of food. I hate the ‘food p**n’ phrase – it sounds so terribly unhygienic!
Crayfish scotch egg.
Heritage beetroot with goats cheese mousse and condensed milk (twist!). Mine and it tasted brilliant.
Pork, black and Hog’s pudding sausage roll. Best ever according to my Hubby and my girl.
Still pondering on what ‘black’ is our mains come. Confit Belly Pork with lots of other delights. James was quiet, which meant he loved it.
Wild Cornish Stone Bass with crab champ. Ate the lot. Tonnes of flavour.
Aberdeen Angus Beef Burger. Does what it says.
Rib-eye steak with Madeira sauce. Lots less pretty than some but was so tender and flavourful.
Pudding time! Salted caramel cheesecake. The doughnut was very nice – with peanut butter inside!
Milk jam ice-cream.
and a chocolate brownie with a Father’s Day candle to my hubby who is an amazing father to my children. As he blows out his candle I quietly pat myself on the back knowing I chose good.
We really enjoyed our time at The Laughing Gravy and would recommend it to anyone who appreciates a laid back, friendly atmosphere with very tasty food.
