When I first arrived in London I caught up with a friend from back home and he suggested that we go to a pub for dinner as we had quite a few months of catching up to do. We ended up checking out one of the two larger chains of pubs in London – the one we ended up going to was a William Morris.
As we were planning to spend a while in the pub catching up I ended up ordering a pitcher of a cocktail to try out and settled on the ‘Woo Woo’ (£9.69) which contained ‘Archers peach schnapps, Smirnoff vodka, cranberry juice’ and was a very easy to drink cocktail.
For dinner I ordered the chicken and bacon pasta (£6.79). The pasta was as expected for the price – a little over cooked, flavours were a little lacking but overall it was edible and did the job of being food for dinner.
While the meal did nothing to inspire me for the price I could not complain and the drinks were very cheap too. I would probably head back again but only for the prices and with good company.

I met up with my friend Miss J at Nicholson’s bar and grill for dinner one night while on prac to catch up on what had been going on in our lives and with our studies. After chatting for a while and looking over the menu we went up to the bar to order our drinks and meals.
I ordered the Gnocchi with a twist ($24) and found the portion size to be surprisingly deceptive! I ended up not getting through the gnocchi and saving some for lunch the following day so I could have room for desert. I really enjoyed this summery taste on gnocchi. To follow up on the gnocchi I settled on a slice of the Mars bar cake and a hot chocolate to finish up the meal. The cake was delicious, a nice rich chocolate cake slice with Mars Bars melted between the cake and icing.
I had not been to Nicholson’s for a few years but really liked the atmosphere at Nicholson’s and it was a good location to catch up for a few hours and enjoy a nice meal. I will have to return for sure as there were many delicious pub meals on the menu to try. Just a reminder to bring cash otherwise there is an ATM on site.
