After walking around London for a while it was nearly 3pm so we tried to find lunch. The first place we found was a take-away/eat-in restaurant café called Enough To Feed An Elephant. A2 and I weren’t interested in the take-away food available so we ordered tuna salad (₤4.65) and chicken and mushroom pie (₤6.99). I was thinking of getting the grilled chicken (₤10.99) but didn’t think it was worth it because I didn’t want the chips, however, my salad wasn’t much better as it literally tasted like...

After our day out, we then took the metro to Paddington where we had dinner at Aberdeen Steak House (part of the Angus Steak Houses group). Dad had lamb shanks (₤15), mum had grilled salmon (₤15), A2 had spinach and ricotta strudel (₤13) and I had a fillet steak (€18).

For morning tea, we visited Sally Lunn’s teahouse to try her world-famous buns. When we arrived there was a queue, but we only waited for 10 minutes before we were directed to the top floor. Mum and I shared a coffee and walnut, A2 had cinnamon butter and dad had ginger butter. All were around ₤3.50. The nicest was the cinnamon one. There were also savoury buns available. The buns look like burger buns, but taste semi-sweet. [caption id="attachment_2191" align="aligncenter" width="400"] Coffee and Walnut, Cinnamon Butter and Ginger Butter...

We were going to have dinner at O’Neils because it was cheap, but children weren’t allowed in and it was too crowded and too much like a bar. Instead, we went to another pub called The Grapes, which also had really cheap food. I got a beef burger (two 4oz patties, mushroom, onion rings and salad instead of chips)(₤4.89), A2 had an asparagus and brie tart with salad (₤4.69), mum got a mixed grill (4oz runp steak, 5oz gammon steak, chicken breast, sausage, beans, mushrooms and two fried...

We checked into our hotel at Wexford at 7:00pm then had dinner at the restaurant inside, Stir. There was a special on for a family of four for €50. We got two courses from the adult menu and two from the kids menu. From the adult menu we ordered roast sirloin (dad), greek salad (A2), pan fried Irish salmon with creamy sauce, mash, green beans and carrot (mum and me), seafood chowder (mum and me) and tea and coffee. From the kids menu we got roast chicken breast...
