Paradise – by Way of Kensal Green

Paradise by way of Kensal Green

An Appropriate Name?

Well, I think so.  In Kensal Rise, you can find an old stately home converted into a pub.  It has various areas to eat or have drinks or even dance the night away.  The bar area is grand with chandeliers and nice furniture.  There is an area for drinks that looks like a library or a dining area on the ground floor in the back with shabby chic tables and chairs.

  Roof Terrace - nice spot to dineIf the weather is nice, it is worth trying to nab a table in the garden or upstairs on the terrace. 

Nice Spicy Bloody Mary

  We opted for Sunday lunch on the terrace and it did not disappoint. After spicy Bloody Mary drinks, I had the roasted chicken  (£15.50) and my husband had the roasted rump of lamb  (£16.75). 

Sunday Roast Lamb

Each came with the traditional trimmings of cabbage, carrots, potatoes, Yorkshire, and gravy.  We selected a wine but were redirected by our friendly waiter to the 2008 Billi Billi Shiraz (£21).

We were stuffed but somehow managed  vanilla cheescake with blueberry compote and chocolate sorbet (£6).  The cheesecake was delicious but we could not work out how the chocolate fit into the dish. Vanilla Cheesecake with Bberry compote The waiter helped us choose dessert  wines – a Sauternes and a Muscat which were both delicious though we each preferred different ones.

Dessert winesWill we go back?  Most definitely!  But next time probably for the Wednesday night Comedy or Friday and Saturday music.  Check the website for details of what’s on and of minimal cover charges.

 If you are taking public transportation, there is a bus stop just outside called Harrow Road or Kensal RIse Underground station is near.
