When you need some trad in your life head to London’s oldest restaurant – Rules. I’ll be upfront – this place ain’t cheap. You may as well just bowl down to the Savoy. But its unique. Check out that carpet…..and the latticed bow windows. The martinis rock and you can get a pile of Stilton to help it down. You just have to rein it in a little bit otherwise you face a billl of well, ahem. A lot. Covent Garden is being reclaimed, very gently from the backwaters – Bedford & Strand, Opera Quarter and Polpo opening opposite on Maiden Lane.
