If you're going to the Tate Modern, crossing over the bridge from there is a Salvation Army cafe that does salad / soup type lunches. The food has always been very good when I've gone there and it is very peaceful and uncrowded.
Hey, thanks for this, TRRF, its is nice round there, I agree...all that area is so different than it was when I was a student in London donkeys years ago...Butlers wharf, London Assembly, Globe etc and now The Shard...lots going on along there...all the cities have changed so much like that over the years, haven't they? Manchester, Liverpool, Bristol etc, all upgraded...not sure how much that will happen in the future, but London keeps marching on, it seems
Just to revive this thread, I'm lucky enough to be going out for a fairly lengthy, slightly boozy early Christmas lunch with some freelance work colleague this week
Were eating at the Skylon restuarant on the South Bank but I was wondering if anyone had any recommendations for somewhere slightly swanky for cocktails and general ponciness later in the afternoon and into the evening in Soho or the West End
Don't go out in London too often so would like a nice treat on a cold winter's afternoon!
All thoughts/advice very much welcomed and appreciated
