If you’re thinking of heading to the Globe Theatre for a cultural night out make sure you get involved with a great dinner. Here are a few of my recommendations 

The Pub: The Anchor and Hope 

An amazing gastro pub, just off Blackfriars Road, by the guys who gave us the ‘original gastro pub’ The Eagle. The menu is well prepared British food and the atmosphere is wonderfully relaxed; just don’t get too comfy if you’re eating before the theatre.

This lively dining room has the best view in London. Try and get a table by the window or on the terrace to watch sun set and the twinkling lights of the city begin to glow. The food is quite complex but very delicious. I really enjoyed the king prawns with Zaatar seasoning, served with Israeli cous cous and humus.

The Quickie: Tapas Brindisa 

Located on the side of Borough Market, only a stone’s throw away from The Globe, this little Spanish restaurant never disappoints. It’s always packed because the tapas is so tasty. Don’t forget to order some of their cured meats and cheeses to go with your meal, which are so good and go perfectly with everything.

The Italian: Zucca 

I love this place. It’s modern, open plan and serves simple, beautifully made, rustic Italian food.  The grilled octopus and peperonata (slow cooked peppers in a tomato and onion sauce) was about as good as octopus can be; buttery soft and sweet and perfect with the savoury peppers. In fact, with the Falaghina white wine, it’s as good as Italian gets.
