Re: Kings Cross/Euston way

Picked up a lot around there in the last 20 years, if Farringdon is close enough, there are loads of places around Charterhouse Street.

Think Gore knows around that area quite well.

Take the East Cost main line to Leeds and then take her to Wetherspoons in the station. Just about enough time over an evening.

Choice cuts from accident victims, served up by members of the St Johns Ambulance group accompanied by the sounds of the massed bands and choirs of Chelsea Pensioners and Sally Army?

Cheers again

Wolsey's class. I took the wife for lunch once. Will not fail to impress taking a Doris there. Loads of atmosphere the odd celeb. Michael Winner was in with us. *he had the best seat in the gaff, I did not.

The Wolseley is mint. Blumenthal at The Oriental is better though.

If you want to do the sights round there, then....

Become a friend of the RA https://www.royalacademy.org.uk/page/38#benefits - free entrance, walk to the front of every queue , memeber bar etc £97 a year and ace

If you want british then here is hard to beat round there... http://www.fortnumandmason.com/c-4-rest … mason.aspx

If you want really nice food, really nice traditional French then ( a bit further west) http://www.opentable.co.uk/racine is just brilliant. Every time and does a £20 fixed price before 7.30pm for that inner Yorkie.

The chatter of the diners, clank of silver ware, hustle and bustle of the waiters all in one large vaulted ceiling room. I had 6 oysters with black velvet in a tankard. Roast leg of chicken with mash and winter veg. Was a long time go like.

Like Gore says Royal Acadamey over the road, Fortnum and Mason next block down, Green Park the other way for a nice stroll. Shepherds Market the end of Piccadilly. Got some nice restaurants there although it's fast becoming very Arabic in the style of restaurants, probably catering for the wealthy Mayfairites a stones throw away from Saudi embassy.

Enjoy mate, and let's have a write up.

Mostly gone. As are the drinking dens. That Jeffery Barnard one, the coach and horses - talk about myth, the Templar was a better laugh.

All round there is tourist land. Shit place to drink.

Re: Kings Cross/Euston way

I was in Soho last week with a London pal, he took me to all sorts of mad little dives. One place, I thought he was leading me into a tart's boudoir, one of them stairways that looks like a tatty taxi office with a haunted Eastern European at the end of it, led down into this sort of sitting room with what looked like a dysfunctional family having their dinner round flickering candles. The fella got up to serve us a bottle of pop and then resumed his victuals. Another tiny little basement place had all these photos on the wall of bohos past, drag queens from the fifties etc, an ancient piano and some old woman fast asleep in the corner. There's all sorts of mad gaffs round there if you know where to poke around.
