and simple yet which avoids being stark and unwelcoming, most probably because of the beautiful, high windows which let in the light. I had Dorset crab salad to start followed by trofie with walnut, pesto and blue cheese. My partner enjoyed a foie gras and ham terrine to start, followed by monkfish and mash. Our two course meal came in at around £35 pounds each, including house wine, which was under £20 for a bottle. You could pay double that for a bad meal in London, yet here we were getting something superbly cooked and presented for a very reasonable price. After a little post prandial wander down to the Embankment to look at the Thames in the moonlight, we went off to the comfort of our superking bed.


We woke to rumbly tummies and made our way down to breakfast, which


comprised the usual buffet-style Continental offerings, as well as freshly prepared combinations of full English and American dishes. My partner recommends the Eggs Benedict as being one of the best she has had.


After checking out, the staff very graciously allowed us to keep our bags at the hotel so we could take advantage of the myriad attractions in the area, such as the London Eye and the South Bank Centre, all easily accessible on foot or by public transport if you’re feeling less than energetic. Temple Court Hotel sits between Waterloo Bridge and Blackfriars Bridge, which embraces one of the loveliest views of London. As our Eye pod reached the top of its arc, I thought what a splendid place London is, particularly during this season of Jubilee and Olympics.
