When I was in England a few months ago, I ate at some lovely restaurants. I love sharing wonderful places to eat. Some of them are in London, but others are in two other cities. To me, they’re worth a day’s travel. Here are some of the recommended restaurants around England we found:
McGuire’s Vintage Tea Room
Stonehenge Walk Amesbury SP4 7DL
Phone: +44 7872 343527
LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE this place! It hadn’t been open long. They had by china pattern! I’ve attached a picture of my crazy self with the coffee pot. Reasonably priced for the amount of food, coffee, and tea you get.
Reeve the Baker (a chain, but still great!)
9-11 Salisbury Street Amesbury SP4 7AW
Phone: 01980 622 135
Many a 2nd breakfast and lunch pasty were purchased here. I corrupted everyone when it came to the chicken curry pasty. Also learned the true sizes of sausage rolls. My MIL makes cocktail/bite-size ones. I was annoyed and it amused the staff. Also, got the Americans addicted to Clotted Cream.
Tandoori Nights (“our” local Indian place)
26 High Street Amesbury SP4 7DL
Phone: 01980 626260
2nd Phone: 01980 626126
Philip and I educated the rest of the American tourists on Indian food. I should have filmed it!
4 North Parade Passage Bath BA1 1NX
Phone: (01225) 461 634
Get there early! It fills up fast that and there’s usually a line of people waiting. The Bailey’s Hot Chocolate comes highly recommended by my husband.
*Literally a few doors down from Sally Lunns*
Tagine Zhor Restaurant
1a North Parade Bath BA1 1LF
Phone: 01225 466 437
Reservations: 01225 839 822
You pretty much stepped out of Bath and into Morocco. I wish I had taken pictures of our food!
Recommended dishes: Moroccan mezze for 2 to share, Kofta Tagine, and the Traditional Moroccan Vegetable Cous Cous. I was defeated by my cous cous dish. I wanted to take it back to Amesbury with me. I didn’t want to leave it behind!
17 Bury Place London WC1A 2JB
Phone: 020 7405 2232
I whole-heartedly recommend the gnoochi. So light and fluffy, instead of dense balls of dough. I love this little restaurant!
The Little French Restaurant
18 Hogarth Place Earls Court London, SW5 0QY
Phone: 020 7370 0366
2nd Phone: 020 7244 6082
Recommended dishes: Vichyssoise, Mushrooms ‘Stiltonnaise,’ Lamb Wellington, and Chocolate Mousse. Philip and I were having a laugh over the FRENCH restaurant’s choice of serving anything Wellington-style!!!
I loved all these restaurants and plan on revisiting them next trip.
