Food and restaurants

Are you looking for somewhere special to go this weekend? Do you want to try something new? Check out one of these hot new restaurants.

Last Days of the Raj 

A centrally located Indian restaurant, perfect for eating before or after the cinema or a show. In summer enjoy your meal in the beautiful garden. The most popular dishes are lamb and chicken cooked with mild, medium or hot spices. For brave customers there is extra hot!

A Taste of Tuscany

Whether you’d like a great value-for-money lunch or a relaxed evening meal in stylish surroundings, this is the place for you. The chefs have all been trained in Italy and they make both traditional and contemporary dishes. We recommend the pasta and seafood.

Your Local Caff

Remember when cafés served full English breakfasts – sausages, beans, fried bread, bacon and eggs – with a strong cup of tea? Well, this place still does and you can have your breakfast at any time you like during the day while you listen to your favourite tunes from the 1980s. 

The Lemon Tree

This pretty restaurant serves healthy food that’s tasty too. Come in for a vegetarian snack at lunchtime or a great fruit smoothie or a cappuccino and a delicious piece of cake in the afternoon. Food is bought from local producers whenever possible.

Cheesy Bites

A restaurant that only serves cheese, but hundreds of cheeses from many countries and in lots of different forms. They serve reasonably priced lunches but dinner can be expensive. Lovely food and a very elegant dining room, looking onto an amazing flower garden.

Fast Best

Fast food doesn’t have to be junk food, as this café proves. Do you fancy a really good hamburger made with the best ingredients, or old-fashioned fish and chips fried to perfection, all on the table in super-quick time? Speed and quality are important here, and the prices aren’t bad either.

The Chocolate Box

The owner of this small café used to cook all kinds of food, but then she realised she preferred desserts to anything else. If you want meat or fish, don’t come here. They only do desserts! Lots of different kinds of sweets. Chocolate lovers will be excited by the range of chocolate cakes.

Musical Chairs

Have you noticed how music improves the taste of your food? This new restaurant has different types of live music every night except Sundays, and excellent food to go with it. Great fish dishes, steak and pizza. Monday is classic rock night, so see you there!

Which of these restaurants would you choose to go to? Why?

I would like to go to the Lemon Tree, because I'm a vegetarian and it's so hard to find a restaurant, where you can eat different dishes without meat.

Firstly, I would go to A Taste of Tuscany to try some Italian food which I like very much. Than, The Lemon Tree as I try to choose a healthy food and finally... of course... The Chocolate Box with a lot of sweets.

I would choose The Lemon Tree because I'm vegetarian. However, I really love chocolate so I would probably go to The Chocolate Box.

I'm really keen on eating health food so for me the best place for dinner or lunch is the chocolate box :)
In my opinion chocolate is the best and i can eat it all the time :) It is so delicious!
I sometimes eat out. I prefer cooking to eating out. Food or dishes which I made in home is less expensive :)

I agree with u jargi but eating alot of chocolate may harm ur teeth and makes u flabby it'snot recommended to eat chocolate alot and chocolate isn't considered as a healthy food it's a dessert but in any case i fancy the black chocolate have u ever eaten it before??:):):):):):)

I would choose to go to Your Local Caff because I have never tried an authentic English breakfast before and I think the ambience of the restaurant would bring me back to the 1980s.

Hi. Yes, that's it! It's slang. We say this in the UK but I'm not sure about other countries.

If I had the chance, I'd probably go to Last days of the Raj restaurant. I'm a real food lover and I guess I'd enjoy any of these, but I really love hot food and I try new things whenever I can... I'd really love to try Indian kitchen... :)
