Not Expensive

List of recommended restaurants at which the bill for two for lunch should come to under £70 – assuming you eat moderate amounts and drink only one glass of wine each; and under £100 for dinner – assuming you consume rather more food and wine than at lunch and that discounted ‘specials’ are rarer.
