The Grenadier Restaurant Review

: Bedecked in red, white and blue, the exterior of The Grenadier is a patriotic sight. Originally built in 1720 as an officers’ mess for the First Royal Regiment of Foot Soldiers, it became The Guardsman Public House in 1818 and was later renamed The Grenadier. This pub is a local institution tucked away on a quiet little street in London's affluent Belgravia neighborhood. The cozy interior has a pewter bar at the front then two small dining rooms. Military relics hang on the walls and the ceiling is covered with bank notes with messages inscribed by previous patrons. Popular with visitors, this is a fun place where one can enjoy a local, seasonal ale on tap --- or perhaps one of the notorious Bloody Marys --- along with classic British pub fare like shepherd's pie and fish and chips. Grilled lemon sole is topped with crab butter and served with mixed vegetables and sweet potatoes. End your meal with the Eton Mess cheesecake, which is topped with whipped cream, strawberries and pieces of meringue.
