Zeitgeist!

So last night, we decided to try a place that had caught our eye sometime ago. Mainly because (interesting fact coming up…) the original pub (Known as the ‘Jolly Gardener’) was featured in the Brad Pitt film – Snatch. It has changed greatly since the year 2000 and is now a laid back German bar serving a range of German Beers and selections of Schnitzels and Bratwurst.

I was first to arrive and was immediately taken aback at how ‘roomy’ the bar was. I’m more used to a cosy pub with a roaring fire, this was much more modern, but still felt quite traditional. I was also impressed with the soundtrack they had blaring (a selection from the 80’s and 90’s).

I ordered my usual (Dry white wine) and the boy arrived swiftly after and chose from a selection of beers (the weakest being 4%!). Now for the food…

We decided upon Chilli con Carne chips and cheese and a sausage platter.

The portions were massive!

And the presentation was certainly… European.

Mash and a second portion of chips came with the sausage platter which seemed a little overkill…

It tasted great, the cheese stuffed sausage was a little rich according to the boy, but he did eat it mostly to himself. The smoked sausage was divine..

If you fancy an alternative meal out, a German pint, or just to hear some iconic music, go on down to the Zeitgeist!

Six Nations Burgers…

I love a Burger.

I mean it.. I bloody adore Burgers!!!!!!

For me, it must look like pure filth.

Luckily, one of my favorite haunts does just this, and has a mighty selection of what burgers they do offer (along with some great roasts, steaks and Poutaine!)

What i needed on this fine evening, was a Kennington Black Prince Burger. Usually they have car themes (‘The Cadillac’ and ‘The Mustang’ to note) but at the moment, now the rugby is back on (horray!) they are doing themed ‘Six Nations burgers’. What a treat!

I of course, went for an England Burger..

A bacon and cheddar cheese burger with mustard Mayo, chunky chips and Curry sauce.

Oh my. It was a taste sensation – it was just bloody amazing.

Mouthwatering...

Mouthwatering…

Look at it, just standing up like that…the crispy bacon and oozy cheese…!

I’m unashamed to say i devoured the whole thing within in minutes.

The boy went for steak, equally just delicious..

Steak man!

Steak man!

Apologies, he had eaten half the thing before i got the chance to take a picture, i was too busy making my way through my burger with sticky cheesy burger fingers!

Get yourself down there is your a self confessed burger addict like me (Monday’s are £6 burger night – How could you refuse?).
