Anyone recommend anywhere for Sunday dinner in London? Preferably around Soho area.

Got a couple of days there in December, tried booking Blaclocks but already full

Been a few times for a roast, always decent.
Boxcar is another good one.

Best value places to eat no more than 15-20 mins walk from Southbank? There's so much chain store fodder about there that's fine but I'd rather somewhere else.

I've read about Marie's Cafe, a greasy spoon that does £7 thai food in the evening and is BYOB. Doesn't quite have to be that cheap really but need to spend smart!

Jump on the tube to borough market? If you are going on a Saturday you can also catch maltby street market too.
If you wanted a sit down restaurant in that area, you could do Padella on a budget.
Other good food on a budget is ramen, udon. You could make your way up to Koya on frith st in 20 mins from south bank. Bone daddies opposite supreme.

All The Ivys generally are.
People go because it’s ‘posh’

Yeah, it’s that vibe minus the quality. Good service but it’s a conveyor belt job. Mrs mate booked it for birthday. It reminds me of Balthazar Covent garden but not as good.

Fucking hate getting invited to meals at the Ivy. Pains me paying out for the food which is certainly not the quality I’d expect for the price. Agree with Stoney though, the beers alright. Do love the interior design though. The one in Brighton looks great, especially the bar. Not much in Brighton that tops it. Used to be the old Post Office where I once got to meet Patrick Moore after winning some school stamp designing competition. CSB.

Does anyone have recommendations for restaurants to check out in Pula, Croatia? I'm off there in a couple of weeks.
