Took my two teenage sons for lunch at Rowley's a couple of weeks ago, which I used to visit often in the 1980s and was excellent value at the time. Things have changed. Three large steak specials and chips, no veg, no other courses, two glasses of Berry Bros claret, two beers and two Cokes was £128. The food was just fine, and I know I should have looked at a menu outside, but really!
I hear that The Gavroche does a 3 course set lunch, including half a bottle of wine, for £40 a head. Please someone tell me that it's no good.
