Café Football: a Review

What do you get when you combine 
über-famous footballers & Michelin-starred chefs? 

A cool restaurant serving comfort food 
with a {tasty} twist.

The Restaurant 

Owned by Manchester United's Gary Neville & Ryan Giggs, 
{they are very famous, says Mr K}  
Café Football opened a few months ago 
in Westfield Stratford, east London. 

The interiors are 'pub meets trendy restaurant' 
with comfy banquets and a bar. 

As you'd expect, TV screens show the match of the hour, 
but it's not annoying {for non-football fans, obviously}. 

On the contrary, it adds 
to the cheery laid-back ambiance of this place.

The Food 

Café Football's menu was created 
by Michelin-starred chef Michael Wignall. 

And this says it all: 
the food is absolutely delicious, 
well cooked, with attention to detail.

You can choose between classic pub dishes, 
like the {scrumptious} burgers, ribs & shepherd's pie, 
or go for something lighter, 
like the avocado prawn sandwich (yummy) & falafel kebab. 

Tip: don't let the hearty portions stand between you 
and the {divine} half-time orange dessert!

Little Touches

Café Football is very child-friendly.

The kids menu is simple with tried & tested dishes 
{pasta, pizza, burgers} and generous portions

Kids can choose their dessert 
from the cute ice-cream bar/sweet shop 
{a feature much appreciated by the Toddler}.

Plus, they get a balloon after finishing their meal 
{needless to say, the Toddler was very impressed}.

In a nutshell: ideal restaurant 
for a fun, relaxed & tasty family day out.
