Walking around Knightsbridge, we spotted Paxton's and had dinner there. It was quite crowded, but we managed to find a table in the pub.

The beer drinkers among us didn't know what they wanted, so our server, who was also tending bar, generously brought samples of several to try. Thank you! I just wanted to eat and not spend 20 minutes waiting for everyone else to ask 101 questions. I...more

Zur großen Portion Fisch gibt es verschiedene Saucen (Tatar, HP...) und sogar eine Gemüsebeilage....more

I had lunch upstairs at this unusually-named spot, which has been around for about eight years.

Long benches surround heavy tables - depending on the crowd, you might be sharing a bench with other diners, hibachi-style. The surroundings are a tad Spartan, but you're there for a meal, right?

I heard there was a renovation, but I haven't been there for more than a year.

While the fusion fare...more
