From early morning sun by mid-day, 2:00 p.m. (14:00) it had turned brisk and rainy. How surprising for London. Anyway, we made our way a few blocks from St. Paul's Cathedral to a London old standard, Sweetings which has been at its present location since 1889. This is a rather small establishment, but has a reputation for fresh fish and in fact the current owner is a fish monger. The set up of this establishment is very unique in that the waitperson (ours was Lee) is enclosed behind a serving area and takes care of probably up to 10 guest. When your order is placed the waitperson hands the slip to a runner, who takes the order to the kitchen. Lee, was great!!! We talked to her about our trip, our hometown and our trip thus far. She gave us a menu to take home.
Favorite Dish: Although it was a bit on the expensive side for lunch, the food was good. The only thing I would caution anyone about is that everything is extra except for the tap water. There was bread and butter in front of me when we sat down. Not thinking anything about it I had 3 quarter pieces of bread and butter and was charged .8 pounds. My wife ordered some "bubble and squeek" and it was 6.5 pounds. WOW!! The 2 dishes were a total of 29 pounds.
