Something in Pimlico (London)
Two Yanks heading to London for a week of sightseeing and we’ve rented an apartment (flat?) that’s between the Victoria Station & Pimlico tube stations. I’m assuming that a least one day we’ll overdo the sightseeing & will want something within walking distance for some much needed food & drink. Not looking for any thing fancy, just something casual & solid, perhaps a neighborhood Italian or a traditional pub. Anyone one have any recommendations?
I would highly recommend the Regency Cafe. Certainly not fancy but good solid cooking, great portions and very friendly staff; an ideal place for a visitor to experience the fast dieing classic cafe culture.
I think it's open from 7am - 2pm, then from 4pm (or 4.30pm) to 7pm, Monday to Friday, and 7am-12.00 on Saturday, but double check.
Regency Cafe, 17-19 Regency Street, SW1
We had a nice casual meal at Cask Pub and Kitchen. They also have a very good list of English beers on draft. Reasonable prices, quiet atmosphere. We were in the area visiting Barbara Pym's church (at least one of them), and since we are also huge beer enthusiasts that is how we happened upon it. Corner of Charlewood and Tachbrooke if I recall.
