The Old Etonian
This hotel and restaurant has a surprisingly extensive wine list, delicious Sunday lunches and outdoor seating with a nice view for when the weather is good. Great for large groups - book in advance to avoid disappointment, as it gets busy on the weekends. I always say hello to the staff when I walk by to make sure they still have garlic prawns on the menu!
