hearty plates of sausages and shepherd's pie at THE NAG'S HEAD PUB
fine & filling
we had a couple nice inexpensive full british breakfasts on touristy museum street in bloomsbury next to our hotel -- no pics but hats off to them too.
overall it was zero celsius the whole time, so it was cold walking around & of course many things were closed, but as you can see we still managed to eat well and we had a nice time -- thx london!
