Autumn is slowly turning into winter. Days are shorter, it’s getting dark earlier. At this stage of the year all we want to do is go home after a long day’s work and cuddle up by the fire, or so we thought.
The Orange Public House and Hotel on Pimlico Road is my new favourite thing to do on an autumn’s evening. For a restaurant, it’s very cosy – radiators blazing, warm, welcoming, homely.
It’s the perfect meeting place for friends, with a lovely bar and pub area downstairs. The restaurant itself is on the picturesque Pimlico Road, close to the sweetly named ‘Orange Square’ and away from the hustle and bustle of Sloane Square.
The menu has a good range. We went for the wood fire pizzas which were excellent. I had the seasonal smoked aubergine, provolone, spinach and cashew pizza on a spelt base and with a pumpkin purée base. This was lovely, the pumpkin base was delicious and the dish didn’t feel like your typical cheese and carb heavy pizza. It was also relatively inexpensive – £9.00 for a small which by anyone’s standards was a really decent size for a small.
All in all, I would go back to The Orange again and recommend it to friends. Admittedly, the service could have been a little bit better but the food was warm and homely, far less expensive than I expected for the area and an ideal way to while away a crisp autumn’s evening.
