THE LODGE TAVERN
Date: SUMMER, 2007
Location: EALING BROADWAY, LONDON

“Sexy and sassy, surprisingly so given its location in ever-demure Ealing (weary shoppers laden with bags will be an incongruous feature of a daytime visit), the Lodge has a wooden cabin feel, at least if wooden cabins were fitted out with DJ decks and staffed by experienced cocktail mixers.
The drinks list has been compiled with bravery and exuberance: a Citron Cosmopolitan features Absolut Citron, Triple Sec, cranberry juice, lime juice and flamed orange peel, while a Blueberry Amaretto Sour blends Disarrono with blueberry purée, lemon juice, sugar and optional egg white; and orange marmalade, red bell peppers and rhubarb jam are not items you expect to find on too many cocktail menus in town.
Beer-wise, the Lodge stocks Zywiec and Moretti by the bottle; DJs and occasional live acts provide the soundtrack.”
