You’ve got to get yourself back to the Garden…

I was out with mum today, having a look around Central London. We passed through Covent Garden and I took a picture of these Christmas decorations. I think they’re lovely and even a Christmas cynic like me felt a bit of festive spirit stirring in my heart.

We had lunch at a place called Bistro 1 on Southampton Street. The food isn’t all that great, canteen standard, and even though it’s cheapish it could have been better. I had the mixed meze platter for a starter which was nice enough. The vegetarian moussaka was a bit disappointing and mum’s goat cheese pancake was worse if anything. Still, it  has a traditional bistro decor which makes it an intimate environment in which to have meal and you can be sat among the interesting variety of people you’d expect to find in Covent Garden.
