The other day I went for lunch at Berners Tavern with Marcus and his family. None of us had ever been before, so the second we stepped through the door we couldn't believe the decor inside.
Huge paintings in golden frames covered every inch of the walls with beautiful detailed ceilings holding impressive chandeliers that twinkled overhead.

I ordered the Braised Chicory, Celery and Butternut Squash Salad. As it was quite small, I also ordered a side of the Minted Spring Peas, which stole the show!
It was a Sunday, so most of our table ordered a Sunday roast of beef and all the trimmings including this delicious looking cauliflower cheese (which of course I couldn't have!).
Marcus ordered Whole Dover Sole with Roast Potatoes, Burnt Butter and Capers. When it arrived, the waiter kindly offered to filet it for him in front of the table. It was like a work of art the way he swiftly removed all the bones in one piece!
As it was Marcus' mums birthday she (rightly so!) ordered these beautiful macaroons. To finish off, I sipped on a fresh mint tea from a very grand teapot.
For something a little special, I would recommend coming here for the Sunday Brunch as we did. There's a great atmosphere with brilliant staff that are always willing to help - all of us are rather fussy when it comes to ordering food but our waiter didn't seem to mind at all!
