THE WOLESELY: DOING THE BUSINESS
If I am ever asked which is the most beautiful room in London restaurant land, the answer “ The Wolesely” scampers past my lips without a nanosecond’s hesitation. It is glorious and perfect for the clientele it attracts
It is, of course, harder to gain entry to than a nun in a chastity belt, but well worth the effort when you can get a table. The food is really rather good. Classic dishes prepared well. The service, being filched from The Ivy, is exemplary and it really is not that pricey.
This was my fourth visit and my first for a simple business breakfast.
I arrived a little early and asked for a table of two. The host was charm itself and asked if I would mind waiting in the bar for five minutes and supping on a juice as the place was chocker. As soon as I said my first name he realised my friend was already there and at a lovely table so I did not have to wait.
The breakfast menu is pretty comprehensive ranging from the most fantastic looking pastries to a full English along side a wide range of teas and juices all at very reasonable pricing.
I, coming fresh from a 15 mile run, went straight for some protein in the form of some exceptionally well made scrambled eggs with perfect smoked salmon. My friend just had a small portion of Eggs Benedict. I tasted a bit and could easily have finished hers and mine. Simple breakfast dishes prepared to perfection. What else could you want?
Well, I actually had some zingy carrot and ginger juice too and a slug of my friend’s Earl Grey.
I was being treated so have no idea what the bill came too. I am certain however, that I will be back soon on my own nickel.
Gots to get me some of those pastries
