For 'real' south Indian food, head to High Street North (east London) or Tooting.

tooting, my homeland….

the grub is top notch if you want that kind of food

decent options for Cov Garden for a cpl of families with kids mid-week, not too pricey but a bit of an experience for northerners, good street food, bodeans-esque. Completely out of touch with the capital these days.

Any recommendations for family friendly eats in London? Staying at Piccadilly and will be heading South Bank, Spitalfields, Covent Garden, Soho, etc. Not after anything fancy, just not McD's. Got 2 young kids in tow.

You're spoilt for choice around there. The festival village is a walk in outdoor area with various bars and street food. Across from there is merchant square with a number of restaurants and bars (although you can probably get better food around tbh)
On Ingram street is bar 91, nice pub with decent food. On the corner spitfire coffee is really good and niche opticians is on the same street if you fancy a pair of JMMs!
Paesano and Sugo (both walk in I think?) are a few mins walk away.
If you head to the trongate/barras area nearby st. Luke's, BAAD and Drygate are all nice bars.
Lots more nearby if you want some more ideas!

Any decent recs in Bath?

Something maybe a bit different from the norm, going with the missus so will be dressing up for the evening meal but a good wine bar for lunch would be good.

Wine Bars:
Corkage
The Beckford Bottleshop
The Grapes

Something different:
Yak Yeti Yak (Nepalese)
Sugarcane studio (Taiwanese bakery)
Oak Restaurant (Vegan/Vegetarian)
Cortado (Argentinian)
Jars Meze (Greek)
Noya's Kitchen (Vietnamese)

1 Michelin star:
The Olive Tree
Bybrook Restaurant (40 minute drive out from Bath)

Fancy:
Menu Gordon Jones (doesn't have a Michelin star, but deserves one)
The Circus Restaurant (one of my favs)
Clayton's Kitchen
Robun (just opened so can't comment, but looks good)

Favourite regular haunts for me:
The Scallop Shell
Thoughtful Bakery
Salathai
The Holburne Museum cafe (if the weather is nice have a walk along the canal and stop off here for refreshments outside. If your missus is a fan of Bridgerton, she'll definitely appreciate this!)

Other recs:
Colonna & Small's (for the coffee snobs)
Swoon (gelato)
Bath Farmers' Market in Green Park station (if it falls on a weekend you're over)
Taka Taka (famous for their greek wraps)
Schwartz Bros (burgers)
Soto Soto (Italian restaurant set in an underground vault)

Okan South Bank, pretty informal but amazing food.
Anchor and Hope is good food and more formal, still has a pub vibe - that's probably a good shout.

Thanks Misled, booked in for Slugo and will have a look at one of those sharing places. I don’t think I’ll be able to swing any JMM’s however. At least not while she is with me.
