A charming English pub that also acts as a boutique hotel, The Captain Cook in Fulham, London, is a fantastic eatery for all occasions.
Named after the famed British explorer who accidently discovered Hawaii, and was, at first, mistaken by the natives for the old god Lono, the nautical theme associated with Cook’s travels can be seen all throughout the establishment.
With a European inspired menu spearheaded by the passionate Head Chef David Brogan, the dishes at The Captain Cook are all utterly delicious, thanks in part to Brogan’s dedication to use only high quality seasonal produce from nearby London suppliers.
Begin the experience with one the sublime starters, which offer a tantalising taste of what’s to come. Exemplary appetisers include the enticing three jerk marinated chicken wings, paired with a zesty lime mayonnaise, the sumptuous mac n’ cheese, made with Parmesan, Pecorino and white truffle essence, and the delectable pan fried squid, cooked with garlic, lemon and rosemary.
The main courses are just as diverse and delicious, with particularly noteworthy dishes like the refreshing grilled haloumi and toasted almond salad, tossed with fresh mint and a homemade rocket pesto dressing, the rich smoked salmon and brown shrimp tagliatelle, coated in a dill enriched white fish cream sauce, and the succulent chargrilled hanger steak, partnered with crispy shallot rings, hand cut chips and a choice of perfectly complementing sauces.
Also featuring a brilliant beer garden for those sunny days, The Captain Cook is an island of exquisite fare right in the middle of Fulham.
