Food at St. Martin in the Fields

Hi all. We are just 11 days from departure to London! I've got almost all of our meals planned. However, we are now considering seeing a jazz band at St. Martin in the Fields on 2/12. For an additional 10P, we have the option of a curry dinner there.

I can't find any reviews here about their food. Would this be something to consider, or should we just plan to eat elsewhere afterwards?

Thanks in advance.

  1. St. Martin in the Fields WC2N : Duke Street Big Band
    Feb 12th : -

    "For £10 enjoy a beer or glass of house wine and buffet including:

    Bengal mutton curry
    Bengal Lentil Vegetable Curry*
    Cucumber, tomato and red onion salad
    Turmeric and roasted garlic raita
    Mango chutney
    Steamed chapati
    Egg fried basmati rice
    *vegetarian option"

    Given the food is served at the same place as the music this a sit-in deal hard to challenge,
    if the St Martins deal offers all the items listed for the price or if the portions are substantial.

    To compete with India-style meals to eat-in nearby, in the evening, most are vegeterian only :
    W1D 4SQ
    Theatre Menu
    WC2B 5JS
    W1T 1DU
    W1U 2PS
    W1D 3DL
    Roti Chai Street Kitchen W1H 6HS

    Kind Regards,

      Thanks Patra19! I've eaten at Woodlands my last trip to London and enjoyed it. I have Roti Chai on my list if time.

    2. I've had a snack in the Crypt at St. Martin's but never a full meal. I don't think you can go too wrong, especially if the weather is terrible and you don't want to schlep around. It obviously won't be high-end Indian food but its a bargain for that price.

      Enjoy - St. Martin's is a really wonderful place and also has free concerts a few times a week at 1 in the church itself.

        Thank you Zuriga1. I think we've decided to eat elsewhere but attend the concert. I'm not really a churchgoer, but I like the philosophy of this church.

          Wise chose re the eating. There are so many good choices in that neck of the woods. In fact, we'll be near there for a play in a few weeks and I've been thinking a bit, too.

          I've never been a churchgoer because of my religion but I love sitting in St. Martin's.
