So kiddie time began with just one on Thursday whilst my other was in pre school so a pub lunch was on the cards at The Crown & Anchor in Bromley. This pub has always been a favourite of mine as I used to live round the corner and frequented it plenty of times before I had children! Saying that it is kiddie friendly having a little tikes climbing set in the garden and the staff are super friendly so I highly recommend it for mums, dads and kids. Apart from the lovely internal decoration the pub has an added area adjacent to the garden which is open plan in the summer and closed in for the winter so perfect for hiring for events and parties.
My friend and I both had burgers from the menu which is all very reasonably priced (£5/£6 for a main) and my Union Jack burger which included a fat home made burger, blue cheese, tomato and onion chutney was lush and served with fries and coleslaw. Yummer yummer!
As I mentioned in my previous blog I had a work event in the evening which was held at Jewel Bar, Covent Garden and I must say the staff there were fantastic and the evening was a huge success. I tried a porn star martini and another personally made cocktail by my amazing event manager Natalia. If you need a function place with a fun atmosphere and yummy cocktails this is the place for you!
On Saturday we were all excited to go to the tall ships festival in Greenwich. The festival celebrates tall ships (hence the name!) and we saw plenty sailing up and down the Thames. The DLR was the start of the fun for my eldest seen as there’s no drivers so that was his job 🙂
It was rammed in Greenwich which was hard going with a 3 year old and a baby in a buggy but the festival village was quite cool with people dressed in reenactment costumes, a band stand with live music, and the usual beer and food tents. Highlights included giant fighting lobsters!, Captain Jack Sparrow and helter skelters (which the other half loved more than the 3 year old I reckon!)
We couldn’t stay for fireworks but I heard they were spectacular.
It was exhausting though so I was so relieved to get home for a nice glass of centro plaza prosecco (currently on offer at tescos!)
So Sunday is here already and all I can wonder is what wine I can try this week when it’s wine o’clock 🙂 what do you recommend??
Have a good one peeps!
