Duke on the Green
There's three main places around Parsons Green that Parson-Greeners and fulhamites hang out in - Sloaney Pony, Aragon House and Duke on the Green. This weekend - for a friend's birthday I headed to Duke on the Green for Sunday lunch and to catch up with all the old school friends. A lovely day for it with the sun shining and pouring through the spring-like dining room.
The Sunday menu apart from brunch, really homes in on the roast - lamb, chicken, beef. Peppered with a few other classics - sausage and mash, fish and chips as well as the ubiquitious burger, with mushroom and toasted almond risotto as the vegetarian option. The starters are slightly more varied and intriguing with a duck and pheasant terrine, scallops with prosciutto and cauliflower puree as well as crispy fried squid and chorizo with sweet chilli.
I tried the squid which was nicely peppered to give it a kick, yet perfectly crispy - without too much extra batter, which can easily ruin a dish like this. The chorizo slithers were beautifully crunchy too, makin up for the weeping greenery - more for show than anything else.
I then moved onto a chicken breast roast which I did find a teency bit alarming from the description thinking that there was a capacity for it to be too dry. But I was promised extra gravy if needs be and a homemade one from both beef and chicken stocks as well as something else stock or gravy making. The chicken was tasty but as not as succulent as some I've had. The strong gravy made up for that but that one was too overpowering for the lighter chicken option and better suited to the beef I felt. Ditto some of the rich root veg that it came with (red cabbage in particukar). But a large satisying portion nfor large apetites, completed with the ultra crisp goose fat roasted potatoes. Good for yorkshire pudding fans too - which come with each roast variety.
I didn't get a chance to try the pudding as a) I was too repleat and b) a wonderful cake was organised for the birthday girl. All in all a nice place for catching up with friends over food.
