Autumn is Here. Let’s Go to the Pub


It’s happening.  Autumn is trying to shove its way to the front of the seasonal queue.  We’ve been pretty lucky though, with some beautiful mild days, but the darker mornings are rolling in and daylight savings is over this coming weekend.

So what does one do in London when the weather catches a cold, dark and moody with grey skies and spluttering out rain drops?  We go to the pub.


They are cosy.  They are warm.  They often have lovely open fires.  And they serve food that warms the soul and the toes.


Last weekend we descended on The Surprise pub, off the Kings Road.  TBND’s friend had flown in from Texas and we were all catching up over lunch.



The menu’s were placed in front of us, we made our choice and waited impatiently for our greedy bellies to be fed.



Some drank beer to stop their tummies’ from rumbling.


Finally the food arrived, hooray!


I went for steak with aioli and chunky chips.  It was okay, not great, it filled a gap but not much more.  I still needed something else….


… and if it didn’t fill me up, that meant TBND would be starving.  Which he was.  So back to the Kings Road after lunch and in to Joe & the Juice for a Cheeta Coffee Shake.


In and out of the shops on the Kings Road, we decided to head to Westfield to see Gone Girl.  What we hadn’t factored in, was how busy the cinema at Westfield was on a Saturday evening.  Plan B was created.


Back out to the train station, and back to our hood, where the cinema still had seats available.


It was a blustery Saturday evening, and I had to hold on tight so as not to lose my hat, but mild enough to still wear my old faithful’s, denim shorts.

We legged it to Wholefoods, or as TBND calls it, ‘Heaven’, (I may or may not be blogging from there at this very second #obsessedwithwholefoods), wolfed down all manner of cuisine from sushi, to Mexican to quinoa crisps and ran back across the road just in time for Gone Girl to start!  Who’s seen it?  Who’s read the book?  I’ve done both, but we found the movie quite intense.  A must see though!

Pub. Shopping. Food. Movies.  I kinda like the sound of Autumn arriving.
