Square Meal Review of Laughing Gravy ?

Fans of silent movies may remember that Laughing Gravy was Laurel & Hardy's dog in the film of the same name; it was also one of the slang pseudonyms for illegal booze during Prohibition. But this revamped eatery is no joke when it comes to the business of food, hospitality and drinking. Occupying the ground floor of an old foundry building within easy reach of the Old and Young Vic theatres, it offers seasonal British flavours aplenty – from duck and rabbit Scotch eggs to peanut flapjacks via scallops with champ or cider-marinated lamb rump with broad-bean piccalilli, truffled peas and parsnip hash. Steaks, burgers and salads make up the numbers, with Neal’s Yard cheeses to round things off. Alternatively, head to the buzzy bar for sociable drinks or an after-hours’ nightcap. ’Professional, friendly service’ is the icing on the cake.

    sexdrugsandbaconrolls :: The Laughing Gravy

    We chose this place as we wanted to find a casual restaurant for Sunday brunch and The Laughing Gravy seemed the perfect option. Situated 5 minutes from Southwalk tube station this unpretentious restaurant sits on a side street along with a number of other cafes, galleries and houses. The restaurant is long rather than wide. It is situated on two levels both reserved for diners. It is light and airy and perfect for families. We were welcomed by bohemian waiters who seated us at the other end of the restaurant on the levered floor. There was a group of us so we were situated on a large round table. The service was friendly and relaxed although a little slow at some times...

  2. The food at Whits would have been considered really good food in the 90′s or naughties, but the culinary scene in London has moved on and reached higher heights while Whits restaurant hasn’t. Don’t get me wrong, the dishes are perfectly decent and some are downright tasty, but you won’t find any dishes here that will blow your mind and you’ll have tasted it all before somewhere else. Currently the restaurant is ranked 10 on tripadvisor…I know the culinary scene in London very well and I wouldn’t even put it in the top 100 (top 300 maybe)!...
