Not so long ago I was on a mad shopping spree in Peterborough. I could feel myself getting rather hangry so thought I ought to stop for some lunch and of course I headed straight for The Argo Lounge.
Just off the Cathedral square, The Argo Lounge is in the centre of Peterborough, serving delicious food and fantastic cocktails. There was so much choice on the menu, both Chris and I struggled to pick!
As I was driving I was relegated to soft drinks but was pleasantly surprised that I didn't have to settle with a boring coke or lemonade. There were lots of enticing flavours to choose from and I chose the Berry Delight- a perfect mix of apple juice, Frobisher's bumbleberry juice and freshly squeezed lime. It was so refreshing and I didn't feel like I was missing out with the non-alcohol one bit!
Chris and I both noted that The Argo Lounge is dog friendly! Something we are both impressed with and can see us bringing Harry here in the near future. He's a cultured hound don't you know...
Whilst we sat and waited for our food order I couldn't stop staring around at the eccentric décor and bright colours. There's so many fascinating features to behold from the art-déco fittings to the soviet-era paintings on the walls. This café bar is pretty cool and quirky.
Oh hello food, you wonderous stuff. I went for a salad, trying to be healthy and what not. The grilled halloumi salad was accompanied by sweet potato, roasted butternut squash and basil falafel on a bed of green leaves. It was SO GOOD as well as comfortably filling. I definitely want to attempt to re-create it at home! Chris opted for one of the specials- a lamb and mint burger with spiced aubergine which came out looking pretty epic. Chris' silence proved just how good it was too...
So that's another epic lunch Chris and I have had recently! There's some quite nice places to eat in Peterborough nowadays and even in rural areas too such as Wild Frost Café which I did a blog post on recently. I'm quite chuffed that although we live in the sticks we're never too far from good food and this was no exception. I think next time we'll either venture back with the hound or come in the evening for cocktails. What shall we opt for?
Have you been to The Argo Lounge?
