Today, I had lunch at The Gay Hussar, a quaint little restaurant in the heart of London’s Soho; the ‘Gay’ word referring to its original meaning. Run now by John Wrobel, his convivial, if somewhat wry, approach is very welcoming indeed.
The walls are covered with caricature cartoons and there are shelves full of visitors’ books that have been donated and dedicated, to the restaurant.
Today, I added my book, The Greatest Gift, http://www.balneaves.co.uk to the collection, now rubbing its spine with the books some very famous people who have dined there in the past. It’s an honour to add my humble offering to their library.
The restaurant’s website boasts,
‘The Gay Hussar has served national specialities and the finest Hungarian wines for over 50 years. Located in London’s ‘Theatreland’ in Soho, the unique decor and intimate environment have drawn the UK’s leading political figures, journalists, and artists alike.
An ideal destination for those wanting to experince a capsule of London’s history, accompanied by generous portions of quality food, and impeccable service.’
