Tucked away behind the busy Chiswick High Road is Sam's Brassiere & Bar, an all day every day brassiere.

My brother and I decided to try out their Sunday lunch menu yesterday (Sunday, November 9).

We were given the traditional drinks menu and also a separate juice menu, something which I found really intriguing and distinctive.

We both ordered one which were relatively pricey at £6 per juice but definitely worth the pennies, they lasted us the whole meal.

As we moved onto choosing our food, both picking out the deep fried squid as a starter and the roast beef as a main, the waiter bravely said that these roasts were the best in town, a bold statement but luckily true.

I couldn't have agreed more-the beef was cooked to perfection, the delicious vegetables and potatoes complimented the dish well, and it was topped off with a thick and smooth gravy.

The squid was scrumptious with the wasabi mayonnaise, a simple but well thought out extra.

 

Sam's Brasserie & Bar opened in August 2005 and is located in the Barley Mow Centre, just off Chiswick High Road in the heart of Chiswick, West London.

An all-day every day, informal neighbourhood 100-seat brasserie with an adjacent 55-seat bar, Sam's is spearheaded by co-owner Sam Harrison, who previously worked with Rick Stein in Padstow and in Sydney for two years.

Other dishes on the lunchtime menu included Butternut Squash, Goats’ Cheese & Parsley Risotto, Mussels, White Wine, Cream & Garlic, Chips and Roast Pork, Creamed Savoy Cabbage, Honey Roast Parsnips, Apple Sauce.

The restaurant was very busy and buzzing which gave a warm atmosphere to the place, the staff were attentive and friendly.

The menus at Sam's feature everything from light salads to serious roasts so there is something for everyone.

We finally moved onto dessert, and due to the generous portion sizes of the starter and main, I couldn't fit anything else in other than a warm cup of tea, my brother tried the chocolate fondant, it was very enjoyable and a nice finish to a perfect lunchtime meal.

Sam's Brasserie & Bar is open daily from 9am until late. The full address is Barley Mow Centre, 11 Barley Mow Passage, Chiswick, London W4 4PH.
