We were in the area and looking for somewhere to have a quick lunch. Went in to Langans and were given a great table in the window of the terrace. The staff didn't speak great English but more than made up for it in charm. The menu was good value if you have the full 3 courses for £23.50 so we also plumped for a bottle of Chilean Sauvignon blanc to accompany the food; it came with a jug of iced water which was a nice touch. The menu listed the options very simply and when the food arrived it more than lived up to expectations. We had Mediterranean prawns with garlic mayo (5 HUGE prawns bursting with flavour) and the roasted tomato risotto which, again packed a punch - 3 types of warm bread roll on the side made for a vary satisfying start! For the main we both went for the veal steak which was thick and tasty whilst being as soft as a marshmallow. It came with new potatoes and veg which sounded bland but the potatoes were sauted and the veg was green beens and mange tout; there was also an apple and calvados accompaniement with the veal - delicious! We rounded things off with the banoffee pie which was a perfect end. After realising we had been eating and chatting for 2 hours (with no hassle from the staff) we left feeling very happy indeed; truly a sign of a good lunch.
