Oh purleeze! Have Marks & Spencer finally jumped the shark?

"Scottish Langoustines with Dill & Lemon hand cooked crisps"

Is it even possible to be so pretentious?

#skiagain Well. I admit it myself at the end - a bit wobbly!

France's most romantic cities
 
These are the most romantic cities in France according to #BGTW  member +Mary Evans via +About.com:

http://gofrance.about.com/od/Romantic-France/ss/Most-Romantic-Cities-in-France.htm
France is a country of romantic cities for couples. Paris heads the list, but also visit Nice, Aix-en-Provence and Annecy for the good life.

Seriously busy on a Sat night... for good reason; great food, good service, reasonable prices. Loved the banter.

Great views and perfect food for walkers, including the local delicacy, puchero.

Visited with a party of friends/rellies who were staying here for advent weekend (end Nov). A roaring wood stove makes the pub warm & friendly (dog-friendly too. Several dogs there over the weekend.) Great pub food, especially local fish, and a good range of drinks.

Stylish hotel, with quirks like the swing in the lobby, and loads of Italian designer bling - mirrors, marble and sparkly stuff. The staff are great, but the reception needs attention - way too slow for group check-in.

Astonishing range of dishes on the menu, spread between a la carte, specials and an early evening 'dinner & cinema' menu. We were a party of eight. Everyone had different starters & main courses and they were all reportedly really good. The range is also astonishing given how big the restaurant is. You'd think they would struggle to offer all those different meals to what looks like 75+ seats x 2 (?) sittings in an evening = 150 covers in a timely fashion, but they do. The only sign they have expanded capacity beyond resources is the queue in the corridor of men (mostly) & women waiting for the toilets!

Stayed in one of their premium rooms and really enjoyed it. We liked their 'can do' approach; eg. how and where we wanted to have drinks before & after our meal, even if it didn't quite fit their normal routine, was no prob, or, "Can you do a G&T with Hendricks & cucumber?" Yes. The restaurant was excellent. All in all, very recommendable!

Only a quick visit but hugely impressed by this classic gem of a London pub. Friendly, welcoming and with a serious interest in & range of beers.
