london day out

im looking for somewhere special to take a friend today to say thankyou . i have a car so can drive anywhere in London - not really looking centrally. Are there any really special hidden gems i can drive to?

  1. Chez Bruce is lovely, and a bit out of the centre:

    But where are you coming from please? Chez B. could be a real slog from Essex, for example. Are you looking for lunch or dinner?

    Oh....Too late for lunch now!

    1. The Bingham at Richmond.

      Great food (just awarded its first Michelin star). Nice room - lovely view of the river.
