With thousands of restaurants and bars in London, the only challenge facing the capital’s carousers is how to choose one.

So we thought we would try and help.

We’ve put together a little list of four restaurants you might like to consider if you’re heading out tonight.

And the best thing is, you won’t need to take a mortgage out to afford them!

None of our restaurants will break the bank, with tasty deals and fixed-price set-menus serving up more bang for your buck.


Mercury Deuxieme

It’s not hard to see why praised the “amazing food, amazing prices” on offer at French brasserie Mercury Deuxieme.

Nestled on Upper St in Islington, a stone’s throw from the Almeida Theatre, the interior of Mercury Deuxieme is jam-packed with vintage mirrors and lampshades, and lit with candles.

Diners feel they have stumbled out of North London and into a Parisian café in the 1920s.


Parisian chic at Mercury Deuxieme - without the eye-watering bill

Its menu of classic French style dishes is very reasonable, with main courses priced at £10.95 and deserts at £3.45.

A Spokesman Said’s Sandra Batata recommends the Magret de Canard (duck to you and I).

Bon Appétit!


Ben’s Canteen

Next up, we’re heading over to Battersea, South London to check out Aussie-inspired diner Ben’s Canteen.

Ben’s Canteen serves up hearty fish and salad dishes, along with creative burgers – all washed down with cocktails and wine.

They’re currently offering two courses + a free drink for £18; but, if you’re in a group of six or more and feel up to dining like a king, take on the £20 burger party set-menu: shared platters of pulled pork and nachos to start, a burger and fries for a main and house drink.

Take advantage of the offer on the Ben’s Canteen website.


Brasserie Zédel

It’s back to French cuisine for our third, and my favourite, restaurant on the list.

Located in the beating heart of London, Piccadilly Circus, Brasserie Zédel delivers the tastes of an upmarket Parisian brasserie – at a fraction of the cost.

In surroundings that echo the Palace of Versailles, you can gorge on two courses for just £9.75 or three for £12.95.

Whilst the fixed-price-menu does limit what you can order, the food is cooked to a very high standard and you won’t be disappointed.

But here, it’s all about the décor.

Copita Del Mercado

We finish off with Spanish tapas bar Copita Del Mercado in Petticoat Lane Market

The food is prepared with market-fresh ingredients and we must give a nod to the impressive Spanish sherry and craft beer selection.

You can currently get 3 courses and a gin & tonic for £22 per person through Bookatable.

That’s all from us; wherever you go tonight, have a blast!

And remember: if you’re let down by a bar or restaurant, demand a fair response on A Spokesman Said.
