Vegan Kid Friendly

After reading some amazing reviews of Patri Indian restaurant we’ve made a long-overdue visit and agree, it’s amazing!

As described on their website, Patri’s ethos “evokes the tastes and aromas of foods found at India’s iconic railway stations and on board its epic train journeys”. In the spirit of veganuary we opted for an exclusively vegan meal and were spoilt for choice! (Don’t worry non-vegans, there’s no shortage of delicious vegetarian and meat dishes). The food is exciting and full of flavour, with friendly service to compliment. (The bathroom is pretty unique too - you’ll see what we mean). Overall, a really exciting addition to Northfield Avenue.

Try Maryam’s home blended tea and finish with her award-winning cake (created to honour her mother’s memory). With the ever-changing menu, it’s one to visit again and again!

Exploring Horsenden Hill, Perivale: From Horsenden Hill Visitors Centre there is so much to explore, starting with a walk along the Grand Union Canal. It acts as a wildlife corridor linking open spaces such as Perivale Wood, Horsenden Hill, Brentham open space and the Brent River Park.

Alongside the Visitors Centre there’s also a beautifully maintained kids adventure playground featuring a big pirate ship and hidden treetop lookout.

Just adjacent to the Visitors Centre is the Ealing Canoe Club. All ages and abilities are welcome. A wide range of canoeing activities are covered including recreational paddling, freestyle, BCU star awards and slalom.

Finally, of course there’s the wide open space of Horsenden Hill (which includes the Gruffalo Trail). On a clear day, the top of Horsenden Hill provides a stunning panorama of the surrounding areas. It’s also our favourite local spot for flying a kite!
