  • The Stoop - has a food bar inside the East Bar, and a range of vans in the ground selling pork rolls, steak baguettes, burgers, baked potatoes, hot dogs, crepes etc. The rumours that they sell lobster and Champagne are greatly exaggerated!
  • Amin's Bangladeshi RestaurantAmin's, 98 Heath Rd.
    All geezers must know the Rawalpindi next to Sandy's, well, the management from Rawalpindi have moved to Amin's.

    But wait for this, they only serve soft drinks, no byo, they are 100% non-smoking. it was enough to put me off but the wife insisted.
    "Their food was fantastic!" (even without the alcohol)
    I've eaten in most of the curry houses in the area some I can't remember what I ate due to the amount of drinking but you couldn't knock their food or the size of their portions which were enormous.
    It gets better . They are also fully online. They have already been reviewed by TimeOut and were voted the best restaurant in SW London for April 2002!
    They open for lunch and you can walk in and just pick up a nan before going to the Stoop - (Thanks Paul)
    Even better - Amin has just offered a new offer!

  • Arlecchino, York Road
    An Italian restaurant named after Harlequin himself. There are even paintings of Harlequin on the wall which should make us all feel at home. The food is excellent with a small but interesing menu of pastas, risottos and a range of meat and fish dishes. The swordfish is perfectly cooked - still soft in the middle rather than the dry chewy dish that is often served. The pasta sauces are varied with things like a vodka sauce (tomato, vodka and chile) being very nice indeed. The wine list is also small but covers most things you would want to compliment the menu. The staff are very good indeed - attentive, amusing and willing to offer suggestions. All in all a very good place to eat.
    • El ToritoEl Torito, York Street. (Almost next to All Bar One.)
      This is a large and lively Mexican restaurant. Almost anything can happen there, you might be in for a quite evening or the small live house band will encourage a few to take the dance floor. So you might want to check where you are sitting before they start up! The menu is not a wide choice, but it still encompasses both traditional and modern Mexican. The blackened Salmon is highly recommended. On the whole portions are very large, reasonably priced so be prepared for a long slow evening. Well worth a look. (Thanks SleepyHollow)
  • Naz CuisineNaz Cuisine, 20 Church Street. 0208 8744 9181 & 9083.
    Tucked down Church Street between the Tandoori restaurant and The Fox this is another excellent curry house. Portions are extremely large, so be careful when you order the rice! A wide selection on the menu reflects European as well as more traditional influences. Well worth a look. (Thanks SleepyHollow)
  • Sheesh MahalSheesh Mahal, London Road. 020 8892 3303.
    Quite the worst curry house I ever had the misfortune to visit! Portions were small, luke warm and very unappetising. If you’re prepared to walk up this far, then cross the road and go to the Tandoori or Naz! (If Steve Lander ran a restaurant ..... this would be it!) (Thanks SleepyHollow)
  • Twickenham Chinese RestaurantTwickenham Chinese Restaurant, 45 London Road. 020 8892 9364 - Peking & Szechuan Cuisine. A fine family run restaurant, about to be handed on to yet another generation of the same family. The offerings include an extensive menu, with a few set meals, extensive vegetarian options, lunchtime delicacies aimed at the very hungry business types. Portions are large and the standard of the food is consistently high. They can cater for larger parties (upstairs) or just a couple by romantic candlelight. Prices don’t get hiked on international weekends and the menu stays as wide as ever. The service is very friendly and they are very helpful if you’re a novice at this type of cuisine. Highly recommended. (Thanks SleepyHollow)
  • Twickenham TandooriTwickenham Tandoori, Church Street.
    020 8892 6973 An excellent curry house specialising in Tandoori and Balti dishes. The menu is extensive and portions are large and reasonably priced. The staff are excellent and very friendly. They soon remember you! It’s difficult to single out any particular dishes since there are so many good ones. There’s guaranteed to be something on the menu to your liking. I’ve personally eaten there many many times and have yet to be disappointed. Highly recommended. (Thanks SleepyHollow)

    Acton Turville, Gloucestershire

    • The pub we went to on the way to the Bath game in 2002 was The Fox & Hounds, Acton Turville, Gloucestershire. 01454 218224. There was a good range of food available even with ostrich on the menu. A friendly pub - also the venue of the ticket game and also had one of the highest number of Alans in one place ever!

    Dusseldorf, Germany

    • Ham HamHam Ham, The Aldstadt, Dusseldorf. Perhaps it's a bit of a long way to go but apparently it makes pork rolls that are almost as good as the pork roll stand at The Stoop - thanks to AJB for pointing this out.
