The Flask is perhaps my favourite pub in London with its great history, design and rural ambiance. So on the 15th of June, I took my dad and mum to The Flask for a Father’s Day dinner. Dating back to 1663, The Flask was the regular drinking place for the likes of Samuel Taylor Coleridge and William Hogarth. Being an history affectionato, I knew my dad would appreciate this pub too.
We grabbed a couple drinks at the bar while waiting for our table (reservations can be made online).
The menu is printed daily and we chose the burger, cod and chips, and rib eye while enjoy the view from our window table.
Ask for a Jug of Tap Water
For my American readers – if you want some free water for the table while you are eating out, you need to ask the waiter for a jug of tap water.
Fresh bread and oil were brought to our table with the water while we waited on the meal.
And finally the food arrived and we dove in. It was all delicious and everyone enjoyed themselves.
The Best Burger in London (IMO)
Chalcroft Farm beef burger, gem lettuce, tomato, pickled red onion, secret sauce, triple cooked chips.
Owton‘s dry-aged 8oz ribeye steak, triple cooked chips, watercress & pickled shallot salad, Béarnaise
Fish and Chips
Fuller’s Frontier battered haddock & chips, crushed peas, tartare sauce, lemon
After our meal, we ordered a couple teas and coffees while perusing the dessert menu.
Mum and dad shared a sticky toffee pudding and I got a refreshing scoop of mango sorbet.
Sticky Toffee Pudding
Vintage Ale sticky toffee pudding, toffee sauce, Fuller’s buffalo milk salted caramel ice cream
Do you need another look? Go ahead — it was delicious. And even if its not a celebratory occasion, you should visit The Flask in Highgate for a drink and/or meal with a friend or two. And if you’re in the area, be sure to check out my old workplace – Highgate Cemetery!
Happy Father’s Day, Daddy. Glad you had a great time. xx
