Christmas in London/Hogmanay in Edinburgh

cwmcm54 | Dec 4, 2009 02:20 PM

I had no idea finding good places that were open over the holidays would be so difficult. I have some ideas but would love recommendations for a formal Christmas Eve dinner that doesn't surpass 100 GBP per person (excluding alcohol of course) I assume that hotels are the best choice but we would also enjoy a gastropub - What about the Montagu at the former Churchill ( now a Hyatt I think) or the Duke. We arestaying in Blomsbury and I understand transport shuts down around 6 PM Will taxis still be available. We have been in London often but never at Christmas
Also, would like to do tea on Christmas Day in the late afternoon after the Dickens Walk (which we know is fun) any suggestions?
We will go to Sofra for some Middle Eastern goodness one day and have reservations at Rules for my husband's game and Stilton fix.
What about a good Indian choice that is authentic but not over priced like Cinnamon Club or Bombay Brasserie? We would like to take a visiting Amreican friend out for lunch on the 28th or 29th.

Also, any recommendations for not to miss Christmas week activities would be appreciated.

We are on our way to Edinburgh for Hogmanay if anyone wants to weigh in on that
