Affordable restaurants in London for a long catch up session.

Hi all,

Planning to meet up a friend whom I haven't seen for over 4 years now and will have loads of catching up to do. So I was looking for some recommendations for nice, affordable restaurants around central-ish London (around Soho would be nice, but anywhere around there is fine) where we can have a bite to eat but be able to sit and chat for a few hours without being shooed away.

Thanks in advance :)

  1. can you define what your idea of 'affordable' is?

      About £20 pounds per head? But we're both university students so the cheaper the better I'd say.

    2. terroirs? i've never been moved on from there. it's particularly nice sitting at the bar ordering a steady supply of their more snacky food items.

        Terroirs, yes. Last time I was there it was for around 3.5-4 hours and no-one seemed bothered at all how long we take. Granted we were always drinking, but it's a really nice place to spend a long evening/lunch.
