Ground, Chiswick, no longer with us

It was a rare Saturday night out with the boys and we decided to take in the comedy night at the George IV in Chiswick. Matt who used to be local suggested "Ground" for a quick pre gig burger. It was extremely busy but we managed to get a table and ordered burgers and a side of onion rings. Some of the options on the menu did look a bit odd, my personal view is that if the beef burger is well cooked and seasoned it doesn't need all the wacky nonsense though I can understand people having fun with it. The burgers came pretty quickly and they were good, not up there with the black Angus burger at "Sophies Steakhouse" but nice nonetheless. What was impressive was the great selection of world beers available, I really enjoyed my draught Red Stripe. The bill came to about £14 each which wasn't bad at all. I would go back and it is nice to see a burger place making a real effort that isn't part of a boring chain.
