I absolutely adored this quaint little upscale English Pub located on the historic downtown square in Huntsville. From my understanding it is Huntsville’s first and only authentic British pub. The menu focuses on upscale English and Irish fare, selections of perfectly grilled steaks, fruits of the ocean, house-cured charcuterie, and beautiful warm salads. So let’s talk about what I focused on.
First, let me say, that you may not get the exact thing that I had because they have blackboard specials that they rotate nightly which consist of hand-carved steaks, fresh seafood, and delicate desserts. I started with the Chef Barry’s Homemade Charcuterie and Tapas for Two. TO DIE FOR!!! And I don’t even like Charcuterie. Go Figure!! Maybe because most Boards are meat and cheese. This one had EVERYTHING; In-house smoked, cured meats and terrines made in-house by Chef Barry served with a selection of international tapas, homemade breads, crackers, and Poppy & Parliament chutney and relish. And they’re always different and unique.
For my entrée I had the Ribeye. Honestly, I don’t recall the Blackboard special name that they called it. But it was, hands down, the best steak I’ve ever had. It was perfectly cooked to temp, tender, flavorful without losing its flavor. I could go back right now. I’ve been for Brunch; I’ve been for Lunch and Dinner and have yet to be disappointed. I’m not even going to try to talk about the A Tart Monsieur I had for lunch. It’s by far and away, the best thing they have. Go to https://www.thepoppyandparliament.com/eat and peep their menu. I’m pretty sure they will quickly rise on you “go to” list, as they did mine.
I didn’t talk about dessert because I didn’t get any. I was fat and full by the end of dinner 🙂
