The Colbert in Sloane Square

London pubs & food are  favorite pastimes of mine, even though London is not famous for great cuisine you can find hundreds of terrific places to eat.

Grande Brasserie Sloane Square.

This is the same restaurant as the Colbert, in 2009 it was called Grande Brasserie.

Like most of the restaurants in Sloane Square this is a great “people watching” place, one tends to go there for that reason more than the food. The food however is fine and the place is always busy.

One of the good London pubs, The Botanist

 The Botanist is definitely one of the good London pubs,  a great place to watch the super trendy crowd go through their mating rituals. It gets so busy the crowd spills out onto the footpath, sometimes it’s a struggle to get to the bar for a refill.


Did I mention the super trendy crowd?

Well here are three people that don’t fit that description, I am enjoying drinks at the Botanist with friends Teresa & Debbie.

Da Scalzo restaurant.

Great Jazz trio at Da Scalzo.

I went back just to hear the band again.

15 minutes walk from Sloane Square

London pubs people food atmosphere

Da Scalzo is a nice little restaurant about 15 minutes walk from Sloane Square at 2 Elizabeth St, London SW1W 9RB, Phone:+44 20 7730 5498. The food is good without being great, so don’t expect too much, however at weekends they have a very good jazz band playing all the old fashioned songs which really adds to the atmosphere. Have a look at them on the video below.

 OK, lets go upmarket

Restaurant Gordon Ramsay

68 Royal Hospital Rd, London SW3 4HP

Fabulous food as you would expect at Restaurant Gordon Ramsay with a price to match. However lets face it, you need to spoil yourself every now & then and the food is great. Check out the menu for this rather special restaurant. I will be back in London in March 2014 and another visit is certainly on my agenda.  😎

As you would expect it is rather expensive.

Cafe Rouge.

Courtfield London pubs Earls Court

Situated at 187 Earl’s Court Rd the Courtfield’s is one of the good London pubs, not very flash but the upstairs restaurant serves very good pub food at reasonable prices, worth a visit if you are in the area.


Mozzarella and More
