An excellent choice for families – this ia a very child friendly place at the weekends. Our party of nine – including three nippers, 7, 10 and 11 – were entertained to the max by the resident Pearly King (from Swindon!), who gamely attempted to teach us plate-spinning, the prelude to animal balloon making and magic tricks (eat your heart out, Derren Brown). The food, after all this excitement, was surprisingly good. My husband reports he had the best hamburger he'd ever tasted, and the children's burgers also vanished in double quick time. The veggies in the party loved their falafel version. I tried to bring a morceau of sophistication to lunch, and ordered the grilled butterfish on stir-fry veggies and (slumping back to norm) chips. Usually, I wish I had stuck with the mainstream burger or pizza, but not this time. Truly fresh and delicious charcoal-grilled fish, complete with intense smoky flavour, was the hit of the day.
Smollensky's, we love you.
