When I was in England a few months ago, I ate at some lovely restaurants. I love sharing wonderful places to eat. Some of them are in London, but others are in two other cities. To me, they’re worth a day’s travel. Here are some of the recommended restaurants around England we found:


McGuire’s Vintage Tea Room 

Stonehenge Walk Amesbury SP4 7DL

Phone: +44 7872 343527






LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE this place! It hadn’t been open long. They had by china pattern! I’ve attached a picture of my crazy self with the coffee pot. Reasonably priced for the amount of food, coffee, and tea you get.

Reeve the Baker (a chain, but still great!)

9-11 Salisbury Street Amesbury SP4 7AW

Phone: 01980 622 135


Many a 2nd breakfast and lunch pasty were purchased here. I corrupted everyone when it came to the chicken curry pasty. Also learned the true sizes of sausage rolls. My MIL makes cocktail/bite-size ones. I was annoyed and it amused the staff. Also, got the Americans addicted to Clotted Cream.

Tandoori Nights (“our” local Indian place)

26 High Street Amesbury SP4 7DL

Phone: 01980 626260

2nd Phone: 01980 626126



Philip and I educated the rest of the American tourists on Indian food. I should have filmed it!


Sally Lunns

4 North Parade Passage Bath BA1 1NX

Phone: (01225) 461 634



Get there early! It fills up fast that and there’s usually a line of people waiting. The Bailey’s Hot Chocolate comes highly recommended by my husband.

Tagine Zhor Restaurant

1a North Parade Bath BA1 1LF

Phone: 01225 466 437

Reservations: 01225 839 822


moroccan-1 moroccan-2

You pretty much stepped out of Bath and into Morocco. I wish I had taken pictures of our food!

Recommended dishes: Moroccan mezze for 2 to share, Kofta Tagine, and the Traditional Moroccan Vegetable Cous Cous. I was defeated by my cous cous dish. I wanted to take it back to Amesbury with me. I didn’t want to leave it behind!


Il Castelletto

17 Bury Place London WC1A 2JB

Phone: 020 7405 2232



I whole-heartedly recommend the gnoochi. So light and fluffy, instead of dense balls of dough. I love this little restaurant!

The Little French Restaurant

18 Hogarth Place Earls Court London, SW5 0QY

Phone: 020 7370 0366

2nd Phone: 020 7244 6082


the-little-french-restaurant-1 the-little-french-restaurant-2 the-little-french-restaurant-4

Recommended dishes: Vichyssoise, Mushrooms ‘Stiltonnaise,’ Lamb Wellington, and Chocolate Mousse. Philip and I were having a laugh over the FRENCH restaurant’s choice of serving anything Wellington-style!!!

I loved all these restaurants and plan on revisiting them next trip.
