Food questions

by kirknigro

I'm going to be in London in March 2010. I haven't been there since 2001 and have forgotten some of the places I went to eat. On that trip (2001) I stayed in the vicinity of the Notting Hill tube station. This time I will be near there, but closer to the Bayswater tube station.

I'm looking for some simple "pub fare". Not sure if there's anything near where I'm staying, but that isn't really important. I had a great Cornish pasty in one pub, and a good ploughman's lunch in another. I don't think they were near Notting Hill station though.

Any help you can give me on suggestions for good pubs for a simple lunch or dinner would be great. If anyone can direct me to a good place to get a pasty or a ploughman's would be even more appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

hi,

You might find the site below useful, if you dont get any personal recommendations. You can search by area or tube station and get info on the various restaurant options nearby.

It's a good area for pub searching. Don't know it personally but I do like the management of one of those 'chains' of pubs in UK called Hall and Woodhouse who started life in Blandford Forum in Dorset and now have pubs right across the southern half of England, including one in Baywater called The Prince Edward.
Ok, you don't get much of a choice of beers (if you are an ale quaffer) as they normally stock their own brews like Tanglefoot , but they usually have a food menu that has something tasty and the pricing is not extortionate.
Have a look for the Prince Edward at 73 Princes Square, Bayswater, London, W2 4NY
They may not provide that basic pasty but could be worth exploring.
HAPPY XMAS !

A short stroll will provide many places to choose from. I can't give you specifics, however, you will not be lacking many pubs and cafe's.

You might enjoy visiting Churchill Arms, a charming pub in Notting Hill at 119 Kensington Church St. (near Notting Hill Gate rather than the Kensington High St. end). They serve up some pretty tasty Thai. They have a bit of a fireplace too, so it's very cozy on a cold March day.

Travel Tips for London

Remember what direction the cars are coming!

by MDH

I can't state this enough for people, but in the UK, people drive on the left, which absolutely baffles North Americans and Europeans, but then again, this can be applied on the North American/European habit of driving on the right. This can be espeically hard in London, as one is surrounded by so many sights and people; some tourists unconsciously look to the left and just walk across the street, unknowingly stepping into onbound traffic! I heard a story at my hostel that an Estonian kid staying there got hit by a red bus because he didn't look to the right. Ouch

So please everyone, look to the right before crossing the street. Better yet, look both ways and stay on the safe side. Londoners know that a lot of people who visit their town aren't from places that drive on the left, so they've written down where to look on virtually every major pedestrian crossing in the city.

Bobbies

by SoulFisher

You'll surely see the famous bobbies on the street.
The English police are nicknamed as bobbies after an XVIII century English prime-minister who created the modern concept of a police force: Sir Robert Peel.
They're also known as peelers. However this word is more used in Ireland and is less affectionate.

Mounted police

by phil_uk_net

Horses play an important role in the policing of London. It is not unusual to see mounted police patrolling the streets. This form of policing really comes into its own when there are crowds of people involved. At football matches and organised rallies and demonstrations there will be a lot of mounted police around.

Changing of the Guards

Mike and I did: BIG BUS WALKING TOURS OF LONDON
THE ROYAL LONDON WALKING TOUR 10.00 am
This classic London guided walk takes you to the very heart of historic Royal London from St. James's Palace, former official residence of Prince Charles, to Buckingham Palace, celebrated home of the Queen.

There are also excellent photo opportunities at St James' Palace and Wellington Barracks.

The British Museum. Somebody...

by shivan

The British Museum. Somebody says that at least three days are necessary to discover all the treasures it contains.

This is the entrance. A whole Babylonian, or Assyrian temple has been brought here and rebuilt.

I spent a whole day in here. I must say that this museum is a cradle of treasures like I've never seen.
