I'm looking for some inspiration on where to take the Olds for dinner when they come to visit next week. They are going to some Performance at the Royal Festival Hall, so it needs to be close and finished by 7pm ish. Can anybody help with suggestions?
There is the people's palace which is actually in the RFH (pricey but v. handy), on the Cut I would recommends LiveBait and Taz and just round the corner is Baltic - which does great food and even better cocktails - although it is busy on Friday.
On the 2nd floor of the OXO is another restaurant (can't remember the name which is nicer than the top floor and another great cocktail bar.
"Formerly Bar Citrus, the Anchor & Hope has returned to traditional pub roots by providing an almost workaday atmosphere but with a seriously good food and ale offering - the excellent Charles Wells beers are on tap. A small, open kitchen relentlessly churns out highbrow English fare, meaning the Anchor & Hope really is a cut above its neighbouring restaurants."
