London Is A Little Bit of All Right

Published: Wednesday 23rd Oct 2013

We are so lucky living in Kent to have our wonderful capital city so close. Our friends, the Bradys, have a fish restaurant in Wandsworth and they had invited all their friends and customers to a simply Marvellous celebration of Mussels and Muscadet. So we chuffed up to London on the train and headed for the riverbank. Brady's Restaurant occupies a perfect position by the river and we were served great steaming bowls of Moules Marinieres with lovely crusty French bread, great bowls of chips and chilled Muscadet.

What a perfect Sunday lunch!

And as an added bonus, several friends had been similarly tempted so it turned into a lovely social occasion. If you don't like mussels the menu has all manner of other fishy choices grilled, battered and fried and comforting puddings like apple crumble and treacle tart. After lunch, a slow journey back to the Station up Kings Road stirred dormant memories of great shopping and dining in Chelsea. We know many of our visitors to Kent visit London while they are here and this day was a timely reminder of how easy it is to enjoy a day out in this thrilling city. Next stop: Paris!
