We plan to go to The Marleybone on our first night. http://www.themarylebonelondon.com/
Sweetings also sounds good - 39 Queen Victoria Street. The City - This place has been around since 1830.
It has a mosaic floor.
We wanted to go for dinner at The White Swan pub and dining room, 108 New Fetter lane, The City - www.thewhiteswanlondon.com on Sunday with Stevie and Tory but it's closed on Sundays (and Saturdays) which is so wierd but I guess it's because they are in the city which may not be very lively on the weekends.
The Wine Library - 43 Trinity Square, - www. winelibrary.co.uk. Not sure if it's the same as the one in Paddington!
Ye Olde Cheshire Cheese - 145 Fleet Street - this is a historic pub. We had a walk through here after we'd been to The Old Bank pub - it was pretty dark and all little rooms. Not that appealing but glad we had a look.
There are lots of places around Covent Garden.
Soph has picked out a bar to go to on Saturday night.
Terroirs Wine Bar - 5 William 1V street,
Around Covent Garden are plenty of places to go - some that look good are:
Salisbury - in St Martin's Lane and next to the St Martin's Lane Hotel. It has a very British pub interior.
The Lamb and flag sounds good too. The interior is more than 350 years old and live jazz on Sunday afternoons.
Neal's yard Dairy - 17 Shorts Gardens - a fabulous smelly cheese shop with over 70 varieties of cheese.
Inn the Park - www.innthepark.com
St James Park
This is a stunning wooden cafe and restaurant offering cakes and tea plus quality British food. It has a new roof terrace. We are planning on going here. It looks amazing.
Lamb bar in Bloomsbury - very popular with mahogany bar.
Clerkenwell sounds quite interesting and has quaint streets. A couple of places that sound good are:
Moro - www.moro.co.uk
34-36 Exmouth market.
This is the best known restaurant in Clerkenwell serving African/Spanish food with apparently fantastic food.
Coach & Horses - www.thecoachandhorses.com
26-28 Ray Street, Clerkenwell.
This is a gastropub with old world charm and well priced food.
Jerusalem Tavern - very cute pub with booths and a small bar - 55 Britton Street, EC1.
We have booked Rocket for our first night - http://www.rocketrestaurants.co.uk/ - we have been here last time and we decided that this is where we'd like to go for our first night together.
4 Lancashire Court, London W1S 1EY - this was very average but great value to have dinner in Mayfair - and in a fantastic area.
We'd like to go to Beach Blanket Babylon again - that was great. http://www.beachblanket.co.uk/home.html
