Grazing Goat: Charming Gastro Pub close to Marble Arch

I can’t believe I haven’t gotten around to writing about my favourite gastro-pub in London: The Grazing Goat on New Quebec Street. Close to Marble Arch, this charming restaurant serves faultless food every time.



Let me elaborate on why I love it so…



1) They have all the classics and they do them well – like beer-battered fish and chips with mushy peas and tartare sauce, Sunday Roasts with delicious stuffing, Yorkshire puddings and all the trimmings. So it’s perfect when you get out-of town visitors who want a taste of traditional British food.

2) They also do some lovely modern British dishes that showcase the creativity of their chefs. Case in point – the Globe Artichoke tarte tatin with a tomato, pea and samphire salad that sounded a bit odd to me but was fabulous. They do some lovely fish dishes – I’m always interested in seeing what the special market fish of the day is and how they pair the flavours together. Like the pan-fried hake with roasted beetroot, green beans and a hazelnut and rosemary dressing.




3) And if you just want a pint of beer and place to chat, their downstairs area is perfect, no reservations - you just wait at the bar till you get a table or if the weather is lovely, grab a table outside and soak up the lovely warm atmosphere of Grazing Goat.

4) Upstairs has cosy rustic vibe and good news is, where you can reserve a table if you don’t feel like waiting around for one.

 5) They’re also a hotel! A slightly expensive one but in a great location in central London – a nice treat if you want a charming boutique hotel with amazing restaurant attached to it.

And that is why I love Grazing Goat - a welcoming casual gastro-pub with friendly staff and a creative seasonal menu that also showcases classic British fare. London at its best!
