The Bald Faced Stag

The husband and I recently had a date lunch, our first bit of alone time in about 6 months, making the most of our newly established nursery routine...

We wanted to go somewhere that was a guaranteed winner, so opted for The Bald Faced Stag in East Finchley.

Dogs are allowed in the bar area, so we set up camp there. We ordered pretty pronto and I enjoyed glugging on about 5 glasses of their cucumber water.

I went for a ham hock pie and my husband a classic burger.

The place was pretty empty, not surprising for a weekday, but we've been for evenings and on Sunday's in the past and it's heaving... So worth booking.

The food was delicious, as it always is in our opinion, and the environment relaxed and easy.

It's a pub that you can have completely different experiences in - from fancy dinner dates, outdoor gin & tonic drinking, cosy Sunday roasts or classic pub grub lunches. It's still one of our fav local places.

Happy full face :)
