We had to run an errand in Wimbledon a couple of weeks ago. It was a frustrating errand that didn’t end all that well. As you can imagine, I was annoyed. So what did I do? If you guessed went to a pub, you know me very well.
Close to the Wimbledon Tube station you can find The Hand and Racquet Pub. Many of you know I’m a huge tennis nut and I thought the name was cute. The place is a lot bigger than most pubs. And it’s a little more posh than many I’ve been to.
The staff was super friendly and a couple of them cracked jokes. That always enhances the experience.
We decided to share the burger board, which included three mini BBQ pulled pork burgers, three Tickler Cheddar & Streaky Bacon burgers, and chips. Now, The Better Half, for some reason does not like pulled pork so I had all of those and they were quite tasty. I wasn’t a huge fan of the bacon burgers. They had salsa on them and I wasn’t expecting that when I bit into one. Normally I don’t mind salsa, but it didn’t work for me that day.
This pub is not near us at all and that’s a shame since I would like to go there more often. But if I happen to get tickets to Wimbledon this year, I now know a place to go to before, after, and during rain delays. I like to plan ahead. I give this pub four out of five stars.
Some friends are visiting us this weekend and I’m pretty excited. I’m thinking there will be some pub visits! Have a great weekend!
