Food: Flaneur Food Hall & Restaurant Click for more info

The gimmick here is clearly the surroundings in which you eat - more top end grocer than restaurant, you can't help but feel that the food bit is just an example of what to do with the stuff being sold there.

It's not of course, but that's irrelevant since the food is so good. The now inevitable Top Table set menu is pretty flexible, allowing a range of options suitable for most diets; I took the cheese and vegetable filo pastry for starters, the salmon for main and chocolate cake for dessert and all were top notch. For those who drink, the set menu price includes a glass of something I didn't quite catch the name of.

Service was good too - friendly and quick. In fact there wasn't much that can be knocked about Flaneur; however at thirty quid per head (mainly due to some very pricey drinks) you certainly have to pay for the experience.
