The Lansdowne, Canton – review

The Lansdowne, Canton

Welsh Gammon & egg with Boston beans, chips & onion rings

In many ways, The Lansdowne is an old school pub but it somehow just works as a present day boozer. In my mind its popularity is largely down to the fact that, whoever you are, whether you’re a regular or not, you will receive the same warm welcome. If you’re a craft ale drinker, a dog lover or a family with children you’ll be welcomed with open arms.

We popped in for a drink with Lola our bulldog after a lovely long walk and ended up staying for food. Staying for dinner was inevitable because, having tried the pub’s legendary Sunday roast on a previous occasion, we knew that we would be in for some really great tucker and our walk had worked up our appetites.

I had a plate of big thick slices of Welsh gammon, runny fried egg, Boston-style beans with a salty and bacony flavour, chunky chips and crispy onion rings. Not forgetting a delicious pint of Chilli Plum Porter (6.1%) – ‘a dark, velvety smooth porter with luscious plum flavours and a chilli warmth’- from The Lansdowne’s extensive craft ale menu. Lola had a treat from behind the bar. Just what we needed.

If you’re never one to shy away from a plate of classic, hearty food you’ll love The Lansdowne and wish it was your own local. Luckily for us it already is!
