The London Bridge Inn, Stockton Heath.
Today has been in incredibly warm, lethargic day for us in Newton-le-Willows – we couldn’t face cooking (nor decide on what to have) so the executive decision was made to drive out to somewhere we’d never been to before and eat there. One of the stipulations was that it had to have a view, so we did edge towards the canal and a sunny beer garden to relax in. The London Bridge Inn looks unassuming from the roadside, but with a good number of people already in the beer garden we knew it must have something!
The only disappointment I had, was that the room closest to the outside windows was reserved (and still was as we left..) meaning we couldn’t cosy up on the giant armchairs to enjoy our meal. Instead we stumbled into this area which was deserted – a plus in its own right – and we settled down there. The décor was a huge talking point for everyone, I don’t think that any of my group had a complaint! Personally I love the duck-egg blue and almost industrial feel of the bricked wall, with the choice of ornamental items dotted around it was a great fit.
Onto the food!
