For year and years I have driven past the Greyhound Hotel in Carshalton and never taken the time to stop by to see what they had to offer.
When I was asked to come along and check out the newly renovated restaurant I was more than happy to take a visit and see what I had been missing for all these years.With the youngest two and my Dad in tow we went along to sample some dishes from their new menu.
I have to admit when we first entered the plush dining area with my two fidgety boys my heart sank a little and was really worried it was going to be a fraught experience but I couldn’t have been more wrong.I was welcomed warmly by the lovely owner who was genuinely more than happy to have little ones share the experience of dinning in his beautiful restaurant.
The menu offered a good range of hearty ‘pub grub’ with a difference. There is a twist on the usual favourites with a few different dishes in there to which makes the menu that little bit special.
I chose the roasted garlic kiev with truffled mash, treacle bacon and summer greens whist my Dad opted for the signature Greyhound cheeseburger with ale onions, shredded lettuce, pickles and fries.
My chicken was beautifully moist and was complimented perfectly with the smooth truffle mash.
My Dad thoroughly enjoyed his juicy burger with lashing of flavour that had been added with the use of different pickles and sauces.
The boys chose sausage and chips and fish and chips from the children’s menu.
Their plates were completely cleared which is a rarity and number four was super impressed with his ‘snail’ shaped sausage!
Pudding was going to be struggle but it would have been rude not to try!
I opted for the sticky toffee pudding with ice cream which was everything you could want from a warm, indulgent pudding.
Number four always struggles with pudding as he has so many allergies, but the waitress was more than accommodating and he was very happy with his huge bowl of meringue and strawberries.
Our first visit was one to remember and the beautiful food and faultless service will certainly be bringing us back again in the near future.
*we were gifted this meal for the purpose of the review and they are all my own, honest opinions.
