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.
