We went to this quaint restaurant nearby and were pleasantly surprised by the attentiveness of the service and the food was satisfying. I would highly recommend.

I was wandering around looking for somewhere to eat, and spotted some sumptuous doughnuts in the window of this lovely shop. Went in, asked for one, and he even warmed it up, a fantastic, enormous jam doughnut. I'll be there every time I'm in London.
