The Weir

Just as I got home from my feast at Roz Ana, my husband said he wanted to make the most of the beautiful weather and take his father out to dinner along the river. I am incapable of saying no to a meal out, so even in my sated state I found myself at The Weir.

We decided on The Weir as we know from past experience that we could go a little later (nearly 7) and still get a table.

The pub is tucked away at the end of the lane behind Xcel Leisure Centre The patio is alongside the Thames towpath at Sunbury Weir. It’s lovely to sit and watch the boats go up and down the river, some docking directly at The Weir for a pint. We’ve even seen herons here.

All tables are picnic tables. There are ample umbrellas, as well as shade from the trees at one end of the patio.

The Weir is a traditional pub. Meaning order at the bar, make sure you know your table number.

The menu is a classic pub menu with some unexpected additions (like salmon florentine.) There’s also baguettes, jackets and a good selection of children’s/light bites.

Inside is made up of different rooms, all with traditional decor. Interesting old photos of Sunbury lock and weir grace the walls.

My husband went for the 8oz handmade Weir burger char-grilled 100% Scottish beef served with chips & salad, with cheese £10.50. The chips were triple cooked and very tasty. He enjoyed the burger. His favourite thing about the Weir is the selection of ales and ciders on draught.

Daughter #1 opted for the Lasange homemade lasagne served with side salad £8.95 (from the adult menu.) She wasn’t keen on the top, she felt it too stodgy.

FIL opted for the sausage & Mash handmade free range pork sausages & creamy mash served with gravy £10.50 He ate it, which I take it means he liked it.

Daughter #2, as usual, had the Children’s sausage & mash served with chips & peas or beans £5.50. She thought the sausages were good but that it had too much gravy. (Don’t know why the beans aren’t in the pic but she definitely had them.)

Still happily full from my Roz Ana meal, I could only contemplate a side salad £3.50. It had a good amount of non-lettuce bits, as far as side salads go and was a decent size. Lots of red peppers and cucumbers (I’d asked for no tomatoes.)

The Weir is a good traditional pub with a superb location and terrace. It’s a great option to wile away a sunny afternoon.
