More Kippers, Mrs Hudson!

uitlander had expressed curiosity at Colleys Supper Rooms, and last night we had booked to investigate. The very name is an intriguing anachronism, and conjures up images of Holmes and Watson entertaining themselves on Mrs Hudson's night off (no doubt the chance would be a fine thing!), though I have no idea whether it's at all authentic or a purely invented tradition.

Our food was fine, beginning with a salad buffet hors d'oeuvres, followed by mushroom soup, then on to the main course. The four choices were paraded in front of us, and we both elected the roast beef. Likewise the desserts were paraded; I opted for the sticky toffee pudding. All this was washed down with a splendid Chateau Lamothe Haut-Medoc. The service was discreet but assured, and we both felt a little bloated for having sated our curiosity and our appetite.
