Situated next to Ravenscourt Park and the tube station of the same name is the charming pub and restaurant, Flynn’s. Welcoming parties from couples to entire families, Flynn’s accommodates all with a smile in a warmly lit, humbly decorated eatery that simply oozes comfort. The tastecard discount is also available on Fridays and Saturdays, which means guests can enjoy some great pub food at a fantastic price, even on the weekends.
Settle into one of the comfy chairs, get warmed by the roaring fireplace and peruse the menu that features many beloved British pub food items as well as the odd international treat. Ideal for diners just looking for something tasty to nibble on over a drink are the light bites and starters, which include such delights as BBQ ribs, breaded brie with cranberry jelly, ham croquettes with balsamic reduction and, the perfect conversation piece, the Bar Platter, an eclectic ensemble of garlic bread, chicken goujons, brie wedges, sweet potato fries and ribs.
The main courses, listed lovingly under the banner of ‘Quintessential Flynn’s’, are all hearty dishes cooked to perfection. Some exemplary choices are the succulent 9oz sirloin steak, served with tomatoes, mushrooms and chips, the creamy tagliatelle, available with either chicken or smoked salmon, and the delectable poached haddock, complete with a poached egg drizzled in hollandaise sauce. Another great alternative is one of the ‘Infamous Burgers’, with entries like the veggie friendly bean burger and the blue cheese stacked burger making excellent choices.
Keeping in tone with the great pub classics there are plenty of wonderful desserts available for those who have not been conquered by the first two courses. Treats like the classic apple pie, drenched in custard or ice cream, the heavenly plum tart, paired perfectly with lashings of custard, and the divine bowl of Baileys and praline topped chocolate ice cream are sure to satisfy anyone’s sweet tooth.
