Danny, where is the Best Place to grab a coffee and why?
Sacred Cafe coffee shop in the Stanford’s bookshop. Down the road from our office and always nice to have a quick browse at the travel books…
And where is the Best Place to grab a pint/glass of vino? Why?
The Lamb & Flag – bit of history, feels like a real pub and you can stand outside. It has a strange way of drawing people in!
In your opinion, where is the Best Place to have a sit down lunch?
SUDA - a new Thai place in Covent Garden, understated and reasonable.
