Just returned from a visit to London. Love your list, wish we had have had time to visit some of your recommendations. While we didn’t get to the Ivy, we did go to the Ivy Cafe with friends and had an excellent meal.

The Ivy cafes are excellent, good choice Karen!

What a wonderful list Scarlett! Now I know where to look when I need a restaurant recommendation. You’ve got a few of my proper old favourites here as well as lots that I haven’t tried.

Thanks Nancy! Maybe I will bump into you in one of them one day! Scarlett x

This post is right up my alley, Scarlett 🙂 Some of my favourites too – love Petersham Nurseries in Richmond (have not eaten at their new Covent Garden restaurant yet) and the River Cafe has been on my list of places to visit for such a long time! Great list of restaurants!

Thanks so much Miriam, coming from you that means a lot! We should do a trip to Petersham Covent Garden together one day. x

Ohhhhh yes!!! This is just what a foodie like me loves to read about!!! Clearly you have great taste (but I already knew that). A few of my favorites are mentioned too – but you forgot Nordic restaurants 😉 May I suggest Aquavit? You will love it! My parents in law are coming this weekend and they want fish and chips. Any suggestions on which one to choose near our hood?

I’ve never been to a Nordic restaurant in London, Louise. And as you’re the expert, I imagine Aquavit is definitely worth trying! I know it’s not local but why don’t you take them to a pub on the river? The City Barge in Kew is fantastic. Scarlett x
