Foodie Friday: Eating at The Orange Tree Pub

Who’s up for a food-based post? I hope you’re hungry, because the British like them some big portions! First, let’s look at the venue:

Historic British Pub

This Gastropub is located at 7 Totteridge Village, London, England. It holds a 4.1 Star rating but I would definitely give it that extra star after the meals we enjoyed! Let’s have a look inside:

What’s on the menu?

We visited this pub for a traditional English Sunday dinner. Growing up with British parents, this was a big part of my childhood. It was wonderful to revisit this memory from my past with my now aging parents!

So what did we have?

Steak and Kidney Pie

See what I mean about the portion size? Well, you ain’t seen nothing yet:

Locally made Sausage in a Yorkshire Bowl

Three huge locally-made spicy sausages, mashed potatoes, carrots, cauliflower, all swimming in gravy, served in a Yorkshire pudding bowl! I washed it down with a pint of Bitter. And if you’re wondering: Yes. I finished every last bit of it!

Most local pubs in England have been bought out by large conglomerates which makes the pub-going experience rather generic now. But because this Pub was still independently owned, they made all of their menu options from scratch, which meant my wife could eat gluten-free.

The last thing to remember about having a great meal is to eat with family and friends!

Our last meal before flying home

This was a little Italian restaurant just outside London. And yes, I’m drinking another beer. Hey, I was on vacation!

So what’s the final word? YUM!
