“In Penny Lane there is a fireman with an hourglass, and in his pocket is a portrait of the Queen”, but right here on Preston Road we have our own Abbey Road and it’s pretty keen.
Tonight’s excursion to this new UK themed pub & eatery was well worth the trip. Nestled in the large shopping center at Park & Preston in Plano, Abbey Road Eatery & Ales give you authentic British food along with a great selection of beers, ales and stouts. What I enjoyed about this bar is it’s not excessively loud. The decor is appropriately British without being cliche, and yet you still know you’re in North Texas. The staff was friendly and the food and beverages came up quickly.
So the way to my royal heart is All-Day English Breakfast. Nothing against Denny’s but the UK knows how to make a GREAT breakfast. Eggs your way, bangers, back-bacon, beans, grilled tomatoes, and potatoes. Top it off with hot tea. If you get the Fish & Chips, Bangers & Mash, Bubble & Squeak, or any of the other traditional dishes, finish it off with Sticky Toffee Pudding!! It’s SMASHING!! Also try a bit of the HP sauce on your chips if you want to feel like you’ve been to Manchester instead of the ketchup. I dare you.
Tuesdays nights, Abbey Road hosts “Geeks that Drink”, the popular pub quiz group that draws a crowd each week. Pub trivia is a big deal in the UK and of course it would be here as well.
