The Bull and Last (pictured) in Highgate serves fairly traditional pub food in an attractive hillside setting. Haddock and chips were very good, and I enjoyed a hare ragu with papardelle pasta. The place was completely full even on weekday lunch in February.

The Brilliant has been a regular haunt of mine since I moved to west London in 1991. It serves very good value Punjabi food, mainly to south Asian families. The methi chicken here is very good, as were a couple of vegetable curries and starters. The pricing is a very pleasant change from central London.

I also popped into the lovely Italian restaurant l’Amorosa, another regular haunt of mine. The dishes that I ordered were ones I had eaten before, so I didn’t bother with an update review, but the standard and value for money were as high as ever.
