Sunday dinner near Liverpool Street, plus couple more recs needed


I'll be in London mid-October for a few days, and need a couple of recommendations. I've read some threads, and perused various lists online already.

My husband is there on business, and I'm tagging along because I once spent a couple of years in London, but haven't been back in over 10 years!

We're staying at the Andaz on Liverpool Street, and arriving around midday on a Sunday. We're thinking we'll just hang around that side of town that afternoon, and would like a casual meal somewhere close by. Modern, contemporary, French or British cuisine would all be fine, and we do enjoy a good wine or beer list. (On that note, any recs on a pre-dinner drink?)

Monday night we have reservations at the Opera Tavern, and Tuesday night we'll be eating at L'autre Pied.

No plans as yet for Wednesday night, but we'll probably want something fairly casual again.

While my hubby is working I'll be doing my own thing, maybe meeting a couple of old girlfriends for lunch or coffee. Any recs for the Chiswick area? I used to live near Chiswick High Street, so I may go for a literal trip down memory lane, pop in for a light lunch somewhere.

Thanks for any suggestions!

  1. I really like the food at Bistrot Bruno Loubet. It's a casual, modern restaurant and the prices aren't over the top. The beetroot ravioli is fantastic!

    1. St John Bread and Wine is quite nearby for modern British. I haven't been yet, but a lot of people rate Duck and Waffle which is next door, both for food and for view. Goodman is also fairly nearby, for steak.

      1. Brawn in Columbia road would be good for your casual wednesday night (it's not open Sunday night). It has a great wine list with lots of organic and biodynamic choices.. It focuses on charcuterie, but offers lots of other interesting, mainly french inspired, food too, mostly small plates. Puddings and cheese are good as well and it's not too expensive.

        I second St john's Bread and Wine as an excellent Sunday night choice!
