My favourite London lunch spots

BILLS // JACKSON & RYE // GRANGER & CO

I am by very few standards a fussy eater, and I love food. In fact, I just joined the food society at university. And the chocolate one. And the cocktail one. (And subsequently the tennis one out of guilt). Anyone who's ever been to London knows that there is plenty of pretty amazing places to get a meal- the last few weeks before I moved up to Bristol I went out a lot as a kind of ceremonial farewell to my favourite city. Here were my three faves.

BILLS
Bills is a chain, but a bloody good one. They have everything from American Grill to loosely interpreted Greek food to Bangers and Mash. I've eaten there a lot and never had a meal less than freaking delicious. They have one in most parts of London, my usual haunt being the Richmond one. Well known for their brunches too, I'd recommend the Chicken Scewers or Pancakes and one of their fresh juices.

JACKSON & RYE
I found J&R after my friend got a job there, I kept visiting to try and catch her at work never actually thinking to just ask when she was waiting tables (yah clever I know) and they serve really decent southern American food with one in S.W. London and the other in Soho by Carnaby Street (can you tell that I pine for American food 99% of the time). Similar to Bills, everything feels fresh and I've never been disappointed. They serve brunch until 4, I'd recommend their Avocado Benedict (maple bacon is included?! need i say more), the J&R soup or the roasted chicken.

GRANGER & CO
Located in Westbourne Grove, Granger & Co serves pretty tasty food in a pretty brilliant location. I've been a couple times and it's always buzzing but never too packed- that being said I'd avoid peak times. My personal favourites is the coconut chicken and avocado salad and pavlova, but I've heard good things about their scrambled eggs. Good, good things.
