The Swimmer @ The Grafton Arms

My parents and dog were down in London for the day as we were moving house, and I wanted to find somewhere dog friendly where we could go for lunch. The Swimmer was one of our locals so I rang ahead and found out they were dog friendly.  I’ve eaten there before (Falafel & Houmous salad, jelly babies, wasabi peas etc.) and they have a good selection of beer. We went in and the place was empty, which I found surprising but was good for my country bumpkin parents. Dad and I both ordered the fishcakes, which came with salad and various vegetables and were really nice and crunchy. I also got a pint of Meantime Pale Ale, of course.
