Date: Sunday 29th January, 2012
Who was there: Heather, Claire, Justin, Joe, Angel & Ellen. (with guest Kym)
We will having a few roasts in South West London in the next few months as Claire and Justin have had their baby boy Joe.
The Hope is a gastropub in 'Upper Tooting' - though I would really say it is Balham. It was a little crammed and the tables were close together, but I guess you notice these thing more when you have a pram in your group.
The 21 day aged West Country beef was nice, cooked through, and the kale and yorkies were nice, the potatoes were a bit over cooked (burnt). they brought out bought jars of horseradish, which was really sharp and amazing! Forgot to write down the name.
Ellen and Angel also ordered a side of the cauliflower cheese, which was a little disappointing, not cheesy enough.
The Desserts were really tasty and we were happy we ordered them - Sticky Toffy pudding, Mascarpone & Amaretto cheesecake with fruit compote. The Cheeseboard was good, but as most cheeseboards, not enough crackers.
Overall a really nice afternoon out. Plus they sell Mean-time lager!
Mains: £13 for the Beef, £10 for the Nut Roast.
