50th Birthday Dinner

It's the big five zero this year, and my husband's promised me a blow-out dinner. Unfortunately, both my first choices of Waterside Inn and Le Gavroche are already booked solid on the day in question, so we're casting around for somewhere else.

To set the scene, starred places we've been to and enjoyed over the past couple of years have included River Cafe, Alyn Williams, The Glasshouse, Chez Bruce, and St John. Starred places we haven't liked include Pollen Street Social, Locanda Locatelli and Galvin La Chapelle.

Any and all suggestions gratefully received!

            For Koffmann's it might be worth calling ahead to get a tasting menu (their website says 72hrs).

          2. Ledbury.

            Excellent food served "properly" but with any ponciness.
