The Other Naughty Piglet is near you and sounds quite good. I haven't been yet.

a mere 10 minute walk and the menu does look good--thanks!

we finally made it to the borough market this week. ate some sea urchin straight from the shell and a few other things besides, but mostly spent our time walking through the hordes of people pointing my phone camera at stores. yes, it's a zoo but so many enticing stores. i'll be back soon for turbot and other "local" fish.

 

for those who haven't been, here's a look at the market. later i'll have another post on food vendors.

Am I gonna die when we (on the same day) have lunch at Bonham's and dinner at Noble Rot?

 

Our other meals are spaced reasonably.

i ate lunch at schwartz's and dinner at joe beef on the same day and survived. noble rot's food is not rich in that vein.

Sunday night at The Harwood Arms was quite good. They let us play around with the format (3 courses at £42.50), and we ended up with 4 apps, a main and a cheese course. Roast quail with blood pudding Scotch quail egg was superb. Cornish crab on English muffin, along with charred mackerel and a great pickled cucumber. Excellent bread (Irish soda w/Guinness) and butter. Sig Eater's cheddar tart (served alongside my fine chicken main) was no slouch either. Wine was drunk by the glass and half glass (I enjoy this customer-friendly stuff), the staff was great...just a lovely night. Not cheap, but not crazy either - £180 all in (okay, half was wine). 

 

I like the optional 12.5% service, though I don't understand how it's optional, as it's automatically added to your bill. 

 

Sneakeater will be happy to hear that we clocked almost 10 miles walking yesterday (Monday)...though my feet weren't.

 

And now I can be depressed, for the rest of out time here, after last night's tragedy.
