New venue alert - the Royal Beaubourg


This nearby place used to be a naff bistro with stone cladding. Run away! Now it's gleaming with white marble on the outside and a monochrome/cavalcade-of-colour mix inside, with fabric used instead of wallpaper even on the ceiling.

We're not sure it's entirely successful, but full marks for trying.

As for the food, we haven't tried it out yet (the reviews seem to indicate it's possibly a little plain and overpriced), but you might like to go for early evening drinks.

Here are a few more shots...
