Reasons for trip

“Meson Don Felipe”: is a Spanish tapas bar on The Cut, south of the River Thames and probably equidistant between Waterloo and London Bridge stations. After seeing the matinee performance of Witness for the Prosecution at County Hall, we walked along and as it was just after 5pm easily got a table.

This is a long, narrow restaurant and apart from a few regular tables and chairs at the back and front, most of the seats are on high tables and chairs down the sides and around the horse-shoe shaped bar. They have maximised the number of covers and there’s not a lot of space.

We ordered a bottle of cava (Juvé y Camps Essential) at £26 from the very extensive, and well-priced “wine list”:, and nibbled on padron peppers and anchovies whilst perusing the “menu”: There was no rush and we took our time choosing but eventually settled on a few favourite tapas which are all very reasonably priced at around £5 to £6: tortilla española (Spanish omelette of potato and onion), Champiňones con chorizo (mushrooms stuffed with chorizo), patatas Riojanas (Potatoes cooked with spicy chorizo) and croquetas pollo (chicken croquettes). All were absolutely delicious but we decided to finish on a platter of three cheeses which were beautifully presented on a slate with quince jelly, almonds and grapes, plus bread or biscuits. A glass of Pedro Ximene at £4.50 each was good value and went well with the cheese.

By the time we left, the restauant was very busy, a guitar player had begun playing perched on a high ledge, and we’d seen a number of people without reservations being turned away.
