Salt Beef, Berry Milkshake, Cinnamon Doughnuts and Chocolate Sauce- Drooling yet?

On Sunday afternoon I went for a catch-up to The Riding House Cafe with my good friend Tasha. Now some of my friends have helpfully criticised my blog for being too 'West London' and therefore I was relieved when Tash suggested somewhere outside my Kensington post code; a lovely British Brasserie nestled behind Topshop Oxford Circus. We would have a nice lunch, I would snap some pictures, do a little review and all would be right with the world.....

But little did I know that I would be having a 'When Harry Met Sally' moment (twice!) first over the Reubens Salt Beef sandwich and then over the cinnamon doughnuts; YES YES YES.

The food was absolutely epic and ridiculously inexpensive for somewhere this tasty ( Lunch for two came to £38 including service). The vibe was also great and the staff were super-helpful.

Tasha and I found ourselves musing that if you're going on a date this is the place to bring your gal; especially if like the majority of our gender, sugary fried batter makes her swoon- hopefully right into your big strong arms.

But if your squeeze aint a glutton, then do not fear. Take your friends, go on a Sunday, try the roast or the Reubens Salt Beef Sandwich- LEAVE ROOM FOR THE DOUGHNUTS!

  1. Can't believe someone criticized you for being too "West London". The blog is called Luxury Marionette after all. If readers are looking for more East London, Camden, trendy & 'alternative' restos and looks, there are plenty of blogs and tumblrs for that. It's much better to have a blog specialized on a certain area than to have a little bit of everything. I prefer quality over quantity.

    1. Thank you for your comment. I think you have a point and agree that it should always be more about quality. I know there are lots of nice places outside SW7, but I guess I just have to make more of an effort to find them! xxx
