Flat Inspection and the Wrestlers

Posted on 2015/02/28 16:01:36 (February 2015).

[Sunday 8th February 2015]
Chie and Erika had their own plans for some of the daytime, leaving me to my own devices for a bit. I started off by going to the flat to inspect progress on the building work. Less than two weeks remained until we'd be moving in, and I think actually (contrary to what I'd expected from watching Grand Designs) things seemed relatively on track - the bath appeared to have been plumbed in, the tiling completed and the floor laid, the radiator bench looked pretty much finished, and the area around the partition wall we'd had removed was all nicely smoothed off.

After that my thoughts turned to lunch, and I was keen to try and find somewhere with a really good vegetarian Sunday roast. So I popped up to Highgate, and went into the Wrestlers, which delivered exactly that. Whilst the centre piece veered slightly unfortunately into the territory of sweet potato and goat's cheese, the roast potatoes were very good, as was the Yorkshire pudding, and there was gravy - so I was very happy. The pub also has a really lovely interior, with wood panelling and an open fireplace - and there were lots of families with young children. Looking forward to future visits with Chie and Erika in tow.
