Clifton Indian Restaurant London – UK

Monday nights are not the most profitable for a lot of restaurants.  My dinner companion had just been given a promotion at work so we decided to go out for dinner.  It was too late to book somewhere posh so we walked along to The Clifton.

The restaurant was fairly traditional in appearance, with the addition of a number of waterfalls (in frames) throughout the seating area.  There was also a small bar area by the entrance.  There were no customers in the restaurant when we arrived so we had our choice of tables.  We went by the window.

Three Horseshoes Restaurant – Breedon, UK

I had been staying at the-almost-nearby Hilton East Midlands Airport with a few colleagues for almost three weeks. We were moaning about being really fed up of the same hotel food when someone in the office told us to try the Three Horseshoes.

Breedon-on-the-hill is a quaint little village about five miles from East Midlands Airport. I reckon it’s no more than 15 minutes off the M1.

We arrived into Breedon around 6pm on a Wednesday and found The Three Horseshoes just off the main road – it was busier than expected but there was still ample space in the free car park.

Regina Margherita Restaurant – London, UK

I was staying at the Hilton London Islington and was due to meet a friend for dinner in one of the restaurants near the hotel.  We hadn’t decided which and I left the hotel a little early with the intention of having a glass of wine while waiting for my dinner companion.

I found this restaurant only 3 doors along Upper Street from the hotel and noticed that they had a Taste sticker in the window (A Taste Card allows 50% off food, 241 deals etc throughout the UK. For more info click here).  Being a sucker for promotions in I went.

Sen Nin Restaurant – London, UK

I am a bit of a girl when it comes to food.  Perhaps I should say I used to be a bit of a girl when it comes to food.  I am not saying that girls and bad; it’s more of a saying, like Yorkie bars.

A client booked Sen Nin for dinner and I was given the three – line party whip; you will go and have fun…  I was more than a little scared.  I was told that the restaurant was a Sushi establishment and no matter how many times I try, I just don’t do Sushi.  I was pleasantly surprised to discover that it is actually a Teppanyaki restaurant.

Imli Restaurant – London, UK

I had booked a combo at Lastminute.com which gave tickets to a West End show AND dinner for £20.  Imli was described as Indian Tapas restaurant and included in my deal I got three courses.   The tickets for the show should have cost more than £20 alone so I wasn’t really expecting much but thought I’d give it a go.

Imli is on Wardour Street in Soho which has a number of boutique stores (along with more than a few chain stores) and a large number of gay bars (not gay bar in a cool and trendy way; think tacky)

I arrived at Imli around 6pm on a Tuesday.  I wasn’t expecting the restaurant to be very busy however this is the heart of Theatre land and almost every eatery has a Pre–Theatre deal on.  Imli was of course, no exception and I was surprised to find the restaurant about three quarters full.
