Going to have Xmas lunch at a restaurant or hotel this year... Can someone recommend somewhere nice?
Not the following please:
Claridges
The Ivy
ANYTHING Jamie Oliver related

No budget, just want somewhere decent. Preferably not crowded and no where too stuffy and uptight. No "fondants of mackeral on a bed of potato foam" but something more interesting than the usual "Turkey dinner".
GO!

Be cutting it fine now i'd have thought.

If you have no luck then you are welcome at mine as always loads of food but you'll be babysitting while i sleep X)

Thanks. Had a look but nothing jumps out at me as sounding really nice - especially not the braised pig head!!!

no worries

River Restaurant @ The Savoy...had it there a couple of years ago....don't know what its like since its all been refurbished

Pushing it for bookings I would thought you needed to do sooner.

yeah anywhere really good will already be booked up and the half decent ones are trying to turnover as many tables as possible so doesn't make for the best dining experience.
