The Coat and Badge - Putney

Taken from the website
Back in the day when I was living in Parson's Green The Coat and Badge was our staple weekend hangout due to it's rather glorious sun drenched beer garden... one of the best I know of. Now, sadly it seems a million miles away (well, in London terms!) and I haven't been there in a year or so - sob!

The other evening I met up with my brother as I was invited down to try their new summer menu, which is full of pub classics, as well as a few lighter bites and a couple of daily specials. 

The Coat and Badge is of the Geronimo Inn family (always pretty much reliable winners, in my eyes) whom are spreading their wings all over London. Each of their pubs is totally individual they state on the website that, 'they are not a chain' and it's clear that the staff enjoy working for a 'family run' business. 

We settled in at the back of the dining room ordered drinks (mine a rather huge blush rose!) and decided on our feast...

Starters (which were HUGE in size!) came in good timing - not too fast, not too slow and both delicious:

My brother opted for the shredded lamb salad served with beetroot, yoghurt and pickled cucumber. 

Yours truly had the sweet potato falafel, giant cous cous and a tzatziki dressing. Crisp outer coating on the falafel, nicely spiced, fluffy sweet potato on the inside and they kept the cous cous simple, delish. 

Mains again arrived in good time and I was seriously impressed with my fish, which was a special that day. North Atlantic Char (from the salmon family but, much less pink and has a far more delicate flavour). Perfectly cooked, adding brilliantly crispy skin and flaky flesh. Served with a small watercress salad and an enormous amount of buttery pesto new potatoes.

Master W had the Ham, truffle egg and home made chips, which, went down a treat. (apologies for not the most flattering of food pics..)

Feeling a little stuffed for a Tuesday evening we bypassed pudding and instead gossiped the evening away in their wonderfully relaxed surroundings. Thank you Coat and Badge we will be returning soon... Putney punters - Enjoy... just make sure you prepare yourself for the extra large portions!!
