London, looking for that cozy british feeling with steaks, pies and a lager? Here are three restaurants and taverns not to miss in London: Rules, Mister Fogg’s tavern and Rock and sole plaice.
Starting with Mister Fogg’s Tavern, it’s a magic and crazy pub, in the true and poitive sense. Close to the theatre district at St. Martin’s Lane, you will find a nice mix of regulars, actors from the neighbouring theaters and tourists. Staff are adorable, don’t miss Raphael in his costume and black, top hat from 1920. There are odd objects everywhere: old baby cots, suitcases and casseroles in the ceiling, a chimney, oil paintings and stuffed animals. Have lunch here, it’s surprisingly good and tasty with home made pies and roasts with gravy and mashed or roasted potatoes.
Another place for lunch is found in Covent Garden, a very simple bar where you will find the traditional Fish and chips served: Rock and sole plaice. Allthough somewhat invaded by asian tourists, you will still find some brits sneaking a seat inside or outside, if weather permits, enjoying the national dish. (Even if many brits claim it’s replaced by Curries today.)
Now, finally, some english fine dining in the oldest restaurant of London: Rules. You make your reservation loooong in advance, not only to enjoy dishes like steak and kidney pie, braised pheasant and a jolly good sticky toffee pudding, but to enjoy the oak pannels, the beautiful oak bar and oil paintings. #lottiesworld #visitbritain #lovegreatbritainse #misterfoggstavern #rulesresraurant #rockandsoleplaice
