Eat, drink and be scary.

'Tis halloween weekend!

Went for a stroll down St. Johns Hill yesterday and stumbled upon a bar/restaurant that has instantly become a favorite, all hail - Power Keg Diplomacy.   

It seemed like we had walked into a time warp. Colonial-style decor, waiters with top hats and suspenders (and such good service), even a pumpkin carved with a mustache. The only thing missing was a piano man (need to find out if they have a piano night, gosh how amazing would that be). Even the music was set in the '20s. Clearly, I'm not a fan of the new millennium and if you aren't either, head down here instantly. 

Started off with a flute of the sparkling Chardonnay.

Dinner was Roasted Venison Haunch (very tender meat), roasted honey parsnips (made meticulously), pink fir apples and mean time stout sauce. A beautiful mix of flavors.

Followed up by the Sticky Toffee Pudding with butterscotch sauce and vanilla icecream. Not too hot. Not too cold. The toffee slightly burnt to give a much needed crunch.

Love this place. Definitely going back.
London needs more places like this.
