I brought my family over for lunch when we were in London after our Manchester adventures. Jeff was not in, but we had a wonderful meal.
A fairly extensive menu, including soup, pasta and various meat dishes, but we decided to go for the seafood and vegetarian food on offer.
Pan-fried salmon, stuffed tomatoes, portobello mushrooms with cheese. I had the moulles frites, though the rest of the family seemed to view the chips as a communal dish. Lemonade for the boys, a glass of red wine, a pint of Landlord for me.
Gastro? No, but honest food cooked to order and not dressed up pretending to be something else. Good and friendly service, too, though there should have been one more person helping out while we were there.
It does not come cheap when your kids want proper meals instead of fast food, but we find this a wise investment.
