Brouge at The Old Goat TW2
My weekends are usually pretty hectic, going to food and drink festivals and visiting places in my official capacity as a blogger. This morning I woke up with a pretty clear day ahead. Funny how things turn out.
On my way to Kingston I happened to go past Brouge at The Old Goat in Fulwell whilst on the bus. I tweeted them a photo of their pub to say I was going past, they replied by suggesting I should get off the bus and come in for a cheeky pint. Little did they know I was about to take them up on their offer.
On my way back I did indeed get off the bus and go in. Its been a few years since I’ve been there so it was great to see how the place has changed with its new owners and makeover.
This is not a full review, that will come at a later date. Sometimes I go into a place for a quick drink and find it to be such a great place that I want to give it a special mention.
I was given a warm welcome by owners Blade and Miri. We sat at the bar having a great chat about the business and how it’s progressed, whilst sipping on a nice cold German beer.
I had a look around the premises and was impressed. The decor is fresh and modern and the conservatory has a lovely view onto the beer garden. If you’re looking for somewhere to have a celebration there are sections which can be separated off for you and your guests free of charge.
Not only did I have a cheeky beer I also had a cheeky bite to eat! Normally I’m not a fan of figs but having been recommended them I decided to give them another go. I’m glad I did. The goat’s cheese was creamy, the parma ham melted and the figs? Well they were jolly tasty, who knew! The menu has what you would expect at a Brouge restaurant. Moules,frites, fish pie etc as well as roasts on a Sunday.
Next time I go it will be to have a proper 3 course meal and I can’t wait. If your looking for a great pub with fab food and a friendly atmosphere I suggest you pop in. It’s worth it and comes highly recommended.
