Well it's been a while and I'm pretty sure I promised a new edition of the Loo Series a few weeks back. These are just around the corner from those at Les Deux Salons strangely, so near to Trafalgar Square is clearly a good area for decent loos.
We were in town celebrating my birthday on the last Bank Holiday Monday in May. There's some perks to having a birthday on a Bank Holiday, no work is one, and quieter than usual restaurants is another. I'd spotted the Tandoor Chop House in a recent edition of the Good Food Magazine with recipes you could cook at home, feeling stuck for somewhere to go for a birthday meal and feeling inspired by the food in the magazine, my mind was made up and I booked a table!
And well, it would have been rude not to photograph the loos wouldn't it? Well, for me it would be.
I'll admit I was slightly worried as the loos were those single cubicle shared affairs. You know the sort where you time your visit accordingly. But in reality I shouldn't have been worried (and I did pick the least visited - the first one on the left, if you're ever there). I didn't quite expect the traditional fittings though.
With a simple black and white colour scheme, the effect was classy and elegant. And the lights, well I'd happily have those at home.
The loo rolder, like the taps, were very traditional.
But the hand lotions were much more up to date, and not a brand I've seen before.
See, I told you the lights were good.
It seems they also have a thing about floors there. Hexagonal floors at that. In the loos there was plain black.
And they continued in the restaurant, with more of a pattern. And yes it's those shoes and orange skirt again, they're a winning combination!
If you're wondering about the restaurant, we had a great meal. It's as you might imagine a spicier version of a traditional chop house, think Josper Grill rather than curries with sauces - and the cocktails were fantastic!
Where's the best loos you've seen lately?
