I try and visit the Social Eating House, just off Oxford St, every year when I'm back in the UK. The food is superb, but the place is cool and very un-stuffy. A 3 course lunch is 28 quid, which is pretty damn good for central London at the best of times, never mind somewhere with a Michelin star on the door. They cocktails are also fantastic, they have a rotating selection with the lunch menu. The a la carte menu on the evening jumps in price a lot, for somewhere a little cheaper but fancy on the evenings I would recommend the Coal Shed.

Belgo (unless you think that that's too... ordinary)

Steak & Lobster if they're doing a Groupon deal

Sale e Pepe at a pinch

Chinatown is a good shout but you should be seeking the recommendations of a native regarding the exact choice of restaurant

Fancy and cheap in central London is a very tough call. Fancy and cheap??

I wouldn't say Wong Kei is fancy - they are so blunt towards their customers it's funny. But agree that the food is good.

Try this: Brasserie Zedel in Soho

Has menu prix fixe, with 3 course meal at £13.75. I love French food anyway, as it reminds me of my year abroad. It makes my elder son and I think of the interior of a 1930s cruise ship (don't get me started on cruise ships, I'm crazy about them). There are so many beautiful art deco designs on the walls. As a diehard fan of Poirot, a deco'd out restaurant is my dream come true. The American bar is also a deco fan's dream, and the cocktails are great.

Still waiting for Themysticalegg to take us to the Shard though, harrysbar

Wow that's wonderfully well priced for London. The Shard will be coming soon enough. I'm staying at the *hopefully* lovely Yorkway motel in York next week. Slowly crawling towards the shard.

Have fun in York, mystic. Went there last week and it's always great. Will wait until you reach Shard status.

Thank you I will! This is only the second time I've been to the North. The only thing with the North is they all speak interestingly, don't you think? harrysbar

I don't have much of an accent, so may disappoint you. My whippet has a great accent, though (Yorkshire babe here)

If someone said that I'd retort with -> Pardon you Sir/Madam I must ask you to refrain from calling me a duck. What an awfully barbaric pinch of slander, I wish to be seen as a human being thank you very much.

Translated this means, "please refrain from addressing me in this manner, Lady Harry"...

I once went out with a guy from Sheffield who spoke with a massive Yorkshire accent. It was like being in the middle of a Biblical epic, with all the "thees" and "thas". Remember the servant in Wuthering Heights? Was it Joseph? That was him, deffo.

Just between me and you and I wouldn't admit this to anyone else in the world, but I have never managed to read Wuthering Heights. I've tried of course I have, more than once, but I just can't get past the boring bit at the beginning to the (apparently) passionate part with Heathcliff and Cathy
