Always a unique experience: The London Plane.
Breakfast: The eggs and biscuits with gravy were fabulous….best gravy I think I’ve ever had. For those not wanting meat or eggs the toast with local baked strawberries and rhubarb shavings are a nice alternative.
Lunch: Somewhat limited choices but, as usual, everything we’ve tried has been excellent. On one visit we went with the smoked fish which was served on warm potato salad. The potatoes made the dish and appeared to have been brined….salty…before being pan fried. The Plane Bread with fava spread and pickled onion and white radishes was a nice accompaniment to our dishes.
Brunch: Again, always unique offerings. Give the green eggs and ham or the baked eggs with creamed leeks and gruyère a go. On another visit we had an excellent brunch of Kouign amann, rice kimchi and peppers and poached eggs.
This place always has something interesting so don’t be surprised when you visit or go for take away: fresh oysters, cookies, bread, and an excellent selection of “pantry” items. Also available are unusual wines, including orange and biodynamic options. If you do get the oysters, be prepare to shuck them yourself. Video here in case you need a few pointers, as I did.
Make sure you give their bakery items a try…highly recommended is the cinnamon honey bun…outstanding!
Just try something…it’s all great!
Service is always very good.
