All in all as good as any similar establishment in the area while having a little more of a feel of a proper night out than some.
Good quality Vietnamese eats and a pleasant surprise on the beer front.
On the back of a battering at the hands of Ardleigh we repaired to the local pub for a chat with the opposition and some grub. Roast salmon was very good with plenty of spuds but a slight paucity of veg. Not quite up to the Swan’s standards but still good value for money. 7/10
Indifference versus the cockmonster. Oh, and lots of wine.
Flaming the salmon involved a geezer nailing a whole side of salmon to a plank before donning a fire-retardant suit and helmet and holding said plank to a charcoal-fed furnace.
If you want to learn to eat classic French food in style there are few places better to start than Le Train Bleu.
A jolly, squiffy and ultimately pooped evening in the company of a friend greatly missed.
The last time I was in My Old Dutch Denis Bergkamp was playing for Arsenal and I could climb a flight of stairs at a tube station two at a time. MOD, I'm glad to say, has aged better than I have in the intervening years.

Timm-eh! Turns out to be high quality and excellent service. Recommended.
