How now, Brown Cow?

Mummy wanted to go to The Brown Cow – a gastro pub on Fulham Road for a reason – which we shall explain later.

It was a rainy day so I donned my trench coat. IMG_4541 It is of course a dog-friendly place – they even have a jar of treats for us at the front – help yourselves, they say!IMG_4540 We got there first and waited for Martine and Rusty to arrive.IMG_4524 I was so excited to read the menu, I jumped up on Mummy’s lap to see what’s there to be had.IMG_4529 After a satisfying lunch and “mission accomplished” in all aspects – good human food, good atmosphere and dog friendly, we added this to our list of places to return to!IMG_4538Yes! Now we know The Brown Cow.

May’s comment: A foodie pub with carefully considered rustic decor located in the heart of FulhamIMG_4533Why did I want to go there?  Because I’ve never been and have heard good things about it – especially that it is dog-friendly.

And a foodie pub sounds like the right place for a fix of burgers and sausages before I have my gall bladder removed on Friday. The after effects of such a procedure is different for every individual. I have heard extremes where some can no longer have steak or any fatty foods. And others where after a short period have resumed eating normally. So just in case I turn out to be an “unlucky one” – but that’s relative again as not being able to eat red meat and fatty foods may mean a longer life span and probably a “lucky one” – I wanted my last meaty bite to be hearty, juicy and memorable.

So I ordered a hamburger with no bun.IMG_4531This was made to look so healthy but believe me there’s a juicy burger underneath all those greens with a slice of cheddar on top.

And Martine ordered Toad in the hole – such a traditional British dish which I’ve never had – but what a fabulous combination of sausages and Yorkshire pudding batter.IMG_4530We shared our lunch so we could have a taste of each.

Not disappointed – in fact it was perfect for my purpose!  Might be my last bite of red meat or sausages … or not!
