During Open House 2011 I visited The Brunel Museum in Rotherhithe for an amazing trip into the Thames tunnel’s original entrance.

Whilst wandering around the area I spotted a restaurant called Simplicity that looked pretty swish and smart but with decent prices. I vowed to go back and in May on my birthday I stamped my foot and demanded to go. :D.

This is what we had in typical photographic style…

Beautifully grilled king prawns with a lovely Marie Rose sauce, the salad was lightly dressed with a tasty vinaigrette, £9.25

Perfectly cooked duck on a crispy potato cake base. Veg was lovely as was the fruity sauce, £14.95

Huge epic sea bream with potatoes, pesto and cherry tomatoes, £14.75

Wonderfully cold pavlova with yummy yummy meringue, £6.55

Chocolate mousse heaven with ice cream and berries, £6.95

Window view

Specials board and open kitchen

Our total spend excluding a glass of Pinot Grigio, £6.50, and a jug of Pimms, £15, was £61.70. Considering the finesse of the food, the good service and the elegance of the interior, I thought this was a very good deal for a three-course meal for two.

Simplicity gets a big thumbs up from me!
