Dinner @ the Green Man & French Horn, Covent Garden

London is a great place for theatre and it is always useful to find restaurants with a decent pre-theatre menu.  Green Man & French Horn serves French country cuisine which is full of flavour and their pre-theatre menu comes at a reasonable price.  They are more than happy to cater for customers who need to fit in dinner before visiting a show.

We only had the briefest of times to spend there.  Rock waded into the Pumpkin Soup with Chestnuts and Sage while I went for the Ham, Wild Mushrooms and Mogette Beans.  For the second blog meal in a row, Rock made the better choice – the Pumpkin Soup was wonderful.  My dish was good but really felt like a more sophisticated version of bacon & beans.


I found time to drink two glasses of the house red, Le Carre du Prieur, which was beautiful and I drank the second with a plate of home-made bread with some fabulous French blue cheese Bleu d’Auvergne – more like Stilton than Roquefort.

The service was very good and very accommodating.  No one was concerned about Rock just having soup or about my choice of cheese – which was not the one on their pre-theatre menu of the day. We probably need to spend more time here to do this restaurant justice.

Wade and Rock are a UK based couple who love good food and wildlife and love travelling to find it. Wade does most, but not all, of the writing and the photography. Rock shares the eating experience and tells Wade when planned posts fall short on sense or style or taste. In the opinion of Wade (and many of our friends) she is also a fabulous baker. WadeandRockandFood mainly consists of reviews of restaurants and pubs we have recently visited. WadeandRockandWildlife and WadeandRockandPlaces are mostly photoblogs.
