Eating out in London doesn’t have to break the bank. This month you could be tasting Michelin-starred dishes (7 of them!) or cracking open whole lobster for under £20. We’ve found some tasty looking menus that won’t scoff your wallet. Oh, and there’s a Medieval banquet thrown in to, because: unlimited wine.
The team at Chelsea’s upmarket French all-day restaurant, La Brasserie, are certainly not shellfish. Every Tuesday they offer a succulent serving of whole lobster and frites for only £19.60 (which is half the regular price!). For those who are fans of the claw, this tender native lobster meat is prepared and cooked to perfection. If this pinches your fancy, then you can find out more and book yourself in for half-priced lobster here.

Mammaa does lovaaa da pizza and PizzaBuzz in Shoreditch have got the perfect stomach-filler. On Saturdays and Sundays, they offer a deliciously crafted pizza alongside bottomless Prosecco or beer. Mmmmmhmmm, that’s right. Bottomless. (We do love bottoms, but certainly not on our drinks). Choose between a pizza from the Worship Street Loves menu or, if you’re a fussy topper, you can create you own DIY pizza with a base of your choice (5 different bases, including a gluten-free option) and up to 3 toppings. All that for only £29.95, if you book through here.

So it turns out you don’t need to take out a small loan to eat at a London Michelin star restaurant. L’Autre Pied, located just off Marylebone High Street, is the award-winning sibling of the acclaimed Pied à Terre restaurant. This gastronomic heavyweight is currently offering a seven dish tasting menu of exquisitely-plated French excellence for only £31. We don’t mean to cheapen things, but that’s under £5 a dish… A Michelin-starred dish! Are they mad? We don’t care. All we know is that it’s certainly a place to seriously impress a date (just make sure you never reveal the actual cost & they’ll think you’re ballin’. Check out availability and book your meal here.

If you feel like a bubbly treat, then the Hilton in Canary Wharf are offering a Champagne afternoon tea for 2 people (for only £29 here). Obviously, you’ll get your delectable finger sandwich fix, as well as indulging in scones and dainty pastries. So dainty, in fact, we’re sure they won’t count towards your daily calorie intake. You need to think about your daily deliciousness intake too. All sweets and savouries are served with your choice of blended tea (or coffee) and, of course, a flute of fizz

The table is set – it’s time to feast like a king. Within the Ivory Vaults in St Katharine’s Docks, you can indulge in a Medieval extravaganza, as Londoners are invited to step back in time to the Middle Ages. Alongside a four-course banquet of food fit for a nobleman (both meat-eating a vegetarian ones), you can expect two hours of entertainment. From skilled, fighting knights to aerial acrobats and jugglers – you’re bound to be blown away at this ‘historical’ experience. (We say historical loosely – there is also unlimited white wine, so we can’t expect you to retain any factual information.) The whole escapade is £50 and you can book your places here.
