ate in the narrow in limehouse (gordon ramsay's place) on saturday lunch, would recommend it. right on the river and nice for a sunday lunch and a few drinks
had tomato soup to start and sausage and mash for main (not the most exciting of meals) but was nice
also, if anyone does go there, the potted pork starter is amazing

also went to the boundary on sunday, have wanted to go there for a while but never got round to it. was suprised by the resturant itself as it was so different to the albion above (also quite nice)
had steak tartare followed by beef with a herb crust and champagne jelly for dessert
would definitely recommend it, food was lovely, as was the restaurant itself

wetherspoons - every town in the u.k.
beautiful freshly microwaved burgers, 100% prime frozen beef in a frozen bap and plastic bag, very tasty and good for you and extremley cheap. Cool
the 3 minute ding frozen spicy pasta, factory made and distributed, and is on par with san lorenzos of kensington, and the awesome fish and chips, all just dipped in a deep fat fryer together, tastes even better than that at rick steins in padstow.
and the most amazing thing of all, is that this is all the handywork and culinary skills of the same bloke who pours you a pint for 99p as well. unbeatable. enjoy. as reccomended by most of fuk.

Searched this thread for Brighton Restaurants, alot of recommendations seem to be fish restaurants, Ideally I'm looking for somewhere that has nice fish but serves up some good steaks etc… To be honest I'm open to any type of food. Any new recommendations ?

L'Eglise is good in Brighton, their steak and duck fat chips are heaven

www.toptable.com is great for finding decent restaurants too, loads of special offers if you book through them.

Dermot O leary has just opened a new restaurant called Fishy Fishy which is really good. Nice location and good atmosphere, especially if you're having lunch. Pretty sure it does non-fish things.

In the narrow lanes there is another fish place called Riddle and Finns which is a champagne and oyster bar. Quite pricey but worth it.

There's a Hotel du Vin in Brighton as well. Topper place.

Edit: Didn't quite read the original post properly.

Other good places - Moshi Moshi. Really stylish japanese place.

The Sussex Yeoman. Really good gastro pub food without the pretentiousness, right by the station.

erm…sure I'll think of others.

"The French Restaurant" at the Belfry, fantastic food, comedy Faulty Towersesque service.

I have eaten in Rick Stein's seafood restaurant in Padstow and would highly recommend it. There are some better deals at lunchtime too, £35 set menu etc.. Definiately worth a trip out of your way.

Staying at the above with the slut next week, can't decide if to eat in the restaurant there or go to one of these two:

http://www.pickledginger.co.uk/
http://www.tastesrestaurant.co.uk/

Anyone ever eaten at any of them or any other gaffs in Ashbourne?
