Day 7 & 8 London: Sutton and The Grange

Jan looked at Jo and I today and said ‘guys, it’s been a week!’ Time flies when you’re having fun.. 😦

Day 7 was a train ride into the South West London town of Sutton.

4

Fancy a drink at The Sutton Arms anyone?

2

I like all the quaint looking pubs in London and made a point of taking pictures of them.

3
Nice name for a pub, The Cock and Bull. Similar to the Fox and Hound.

5

Nice pattiserie with lovely display of cakes and pastries.

9

We bought some to bring home! This chocolate cake was very rich and tasted like icecream.

10

Jo’s strawberry gateau which she says was a tad too tart for her liking.

7

Typical Indian takeaway for dinner! I requested for the classic chicken tikka masala which is the orange one on the far left. It tasted like butter chicken in Perth. All the other curries were really nice, I like Indian food in UK a lot better.

8

Victorian sponge cake from Marks and Spencers for dessert. This simple jam and cream sponge cake was light and tasty.

11

Since I was interested in pubs, Jan and Andy wanted to bring me out for a Saturday pub lunch. This was our first choice, nice looking pub right? But we left because it was getting crowded with the football crowd.

12

Second choice was even better! The Grange was very impressive looking and looked like a charming English manor, would never have guessed it was a pub.

13

I was expecting dark wooden floors, but was pleasantly surprised at the light and bright interior of The Grange. It’s so nice that people hold wedding functions here!

14

Andy’s burger with chips and salad which he said was pretty good.

15
Jan and I both ordered the pie of the day which was beef and Guinness pie with mash potatoes and vegetables. This was really lovely, the beef chunks were meltingly tender, well seasoned and the baby carrots and beans were done just right.

16

Jo’s fish and chips, a British classic which came with mushy peas, chips and salad. It didn’t disappoint, I was quite impressed with the thin crispy batter and flaky fish flesh, yum.

17

Besides the nice pub food, the surroundings of The Grange are lovely too with a park just right behind it.

18

Ponds for some duck feeding?

21

This is the alfresco dining area of The Grange, lots of families were picnicking and enjoying the sunshine. We’ve been pretty lucky to get nice weather in London throughout our stay here.

19

Ice cream van at Valley Park.  The ice cream man actually posed for us! This time we stopped for a soft serve cone.

20

Soft serve cone with a flake.

Kaka picture of the day: looking at her papa and his cone and thinking ‘where’s mine papa?’
