5 nights near British Museum mid September?

Jump to last reply

Good morning. My husband and I are planning a return 5 night stay in London mid-September. We do have some dietary restrictions (gluten-free for me, no milk products for hubbie), but, have had some fine meals in London based on your recommendations.

For our November 2014 trip, we enjoyed our pre-theater meal at Terroirs and post-theater at Delauney. Some years ago, we also enjoyed Harwood Arms (hubbie still talks about his scotch egg). The other memorable meal in London from our last visit was a poor experience at St James Hotel and Club for afternoon tea—expensive, bad service, and little food. So bad that hubbie has told me that if I want to do afternoon tea this visit, will have to do it by myself.

This time, we are staying in central London in a B&B, a couple of blocks away from the British Museum. So, will have breakfast already taken care of.

We haven’t sorted out our entire itinerary other than theatre Saturday and Monday nights. Hubbie wants to visit Churchill War Room, I would like to visit Bletchley or do another day trip out of London (perhaps with London walks).

Can you help us plan our 5 dinners and 4 lunches in London? For budget, will 15-30 pounds per person for dinner, 11 pounds per person for lunch do it for budget-moderate meals (average costs for London)? We could certainly have more expensive late lunch and less expensive dinner.

I really could use some help figuring out:
1. Friday late night meal near Ridgemount Hotel/British Museum (our flight gets in to Heathrow at 9:55 pm
)2. Saturday pre-theatre near Phoenix theatre
3. Sunday dinner (gastropub? Sunday roast?)
4. Monday pre-theatre near Savoy theatre
5. Markets to hit Saturday, Sunday, Monday and/or Tuesday (lunch/picnic supplies/gifts to take home)
6. Suggestions for day trip to Bletchley or other day trip out of London (Sunday or Tuesday lunch)
7. Museum cafés/restaurants worth a visit
8. Good last dinner in London (bib gourmand? gastropub?)
9. Thoughts on whether and which Ottolenghi location for picnic supplies or eat in?

Thank you.
