Hello friends - D and I will be in London for a week or so with some friends over the New Years holiday to celebrate a milestone anniversary.  I'm ashamed to say we've not spent any time in London, hence the selection for this trip, and I've found some good ideas in older posts but everything is 3-4 years old so any updated thoughts would be welcome.  Think relatively casual as we are making this a pretty "comfy" trip and packing light, so availability of proper attire for some spots will be limited. 

I appreciate it!

Original Post

Haven't been in 2 years - but we had great meals at the following:

Pollen Street Social

Lorne - truly great value and excellent well-priced wine list

Kitchen W8

and Windmill Pub for pies

Also had a great lunch at Arabica in Borough Market

 

I should add that Pollen Street and Kitchen W8 were very well priced for the quality of meal

Hope you guys have a great time in London!  GF and I spent Xmas and New Years several years ago.  Excellent time of year.

As far as restaurants go for celebrating an anniversary, I can recommend the Gilbert Scott in the St. Pancras Renaissance Hotel.  Food was great.  Enjoy a drink in the bar of the hotel.  

Afternoon Tea in the Marriott County Hall was great too - worthy of a celebration and great views of the London Eye and Westminster.

I've received recommendations for the Sky Garden and the restaurant at the top of the Shard, but I have not tried them yet.

We were just there last week.  Since I was also visiting my daughter, we only really went out 1 night in London - and used a recommendation from bman to have dinner at Rules - which is the oldest operating restaurant in London.  Was very good and a must if you enjoy eating game

Check out 67 Pall Mall. Wine list is otherworldly. Some say the best by the glass list in Europe.

Looks fantastic, but am I correct in seeing it's a member only club?

City Social (in the City) and Noble Rot. Have fun!

Another Jason Atherton restaurant like Pollen Street Social - never been but if it is anything like Pollen I am sure it is excellent

So sorry to come back to this so late after the trip, but just wanted to post thanks to you guys for the recs.  We had a fabulous time, driven in large part by the wonderful meals based upon your suggestions.  Appreciate the help, as always!
