A night off from revision and reading. My destination later on is The Bill Murray, a popular comedy pub venue in Islington. Before that I need some food and drink, so I thought I would pop in to Brewhouse and Kitchen, Islington, as it’s somewhere that I wandered past last month when I was at City University.
There was football on around the periphery of the pub, but no-one was that interested in it, so it’s another to add to the list of “not football venues” which you can watch the match in peace in.
First up, some Westwood Pale, brewed here on site, an American pale that’s a clean, hoppy, tropical and modern pale. Lovely easy drinking beer.
I also had a Great Eastern India Pale Ale from Redchurch Brewery, a lovely well rounded IPA, full of balance. And they haven’t skimped on the pale either!
Dinner was a pan seared red snapper fillet with coconut and coriander rice, bean sprouts, sugar snap peas, fresh sweetcorn salsa and a soy dressing.
As there was still plenty of time before the comedy started down the road, I had time for another, in the form of Hot Black Desiato, a milk stout also brewed here on site. As you might expect, it was sweet and creamy.
A nice little place, and I think I’ll come back here for dinner on Friday evening as I have some time between the end of my exams and my train home.
