Marcus Wareing at the Savoy Grill

Went in for lunch before Christmas with a few people from work and for me it was a real treat. The food was superb and so was the service and i would love to take the wife for a special treat but she would still find time to moan about the cost. I did think it was a bit steep but this time i wasnt paying so it is not an issue. Great for a one off treat.

Locale (Blackheath)

In a nut shell poor food and poor service. We were part of a large group of people all of which were very dissapointed with the experience. First impressions as we walked were, wow what a nice looking place and a nice friendly atmos phere but thats where the good bit ends. My starter was Goats cheese with roasted walnut and caremelised onion with spinach which was not too bad but the cheese was overpowering to say the least, my wife had Tuscan ham served on what looked like a popadom but not as tasty, both ham and popadom thing were very bland. After a very long wait the mains arrived and these were no better i chose a Swordfish steak which again was not to bad but was served with a mass of wilted salad leaves that even a starved rabbit would turn its nose up at, my wife did not get a main! After several attemps to attract a waiter we shortly got a piping hot (microwaved) Squid ink Tagliatelle which looked and tasted bad. We never styed for our sweet, thats how impressed we were! We even had trouble getting served drinks due to the fact it became so busy and more people were waiting to be seated. We had a 100 mile round trip to come to Locale and it certainly wont happen again. My advice is avoid at all costs!
