I was very lucky to eat out twice this weekend and both times it was very reasonable and tasty food.
On Saturday I went to the theatre for a matinee with my friend so beforehand we went for lunch at Smollenskys on the Strand which I've not been to before, but she has fond memories of from childhood visits with her late father. It has changed somewhat in the years since then, but it's still a very smart looking place to get a bite to eat pre-theatre. Not least as it's so close to theatreland in London. I would recommend it for those in a hurry as the food was brought to us quickly and it was presented well. It wasn't busy when we ate there at 2pm on a Saturday, but I can imagine it is popular in the evening.

Then on Sunday we to a place local to us called Coombe Lodge. It's an old house that has been converted into a hotel and restaurant and as it was Father's day we took Hubbie there for a spot of brunch. He enjoys the full English breakfast and as our son eats free he enjoys having sausages and hash browns with beans. I went for a continental breakfast with the addition of a two egg omelette that looked like it had been made in a pan with a scalloped edge as it had a pretty frilly look to it.

Not exactly culinary highlights I know, but the food was good and decently priced. All in all a good weekend for veggie eats :)
