If you are in the area and looking for great Fish & Chips, the Old Express is a great alternative. Along with great selection of wines and beers, the food at the Old Express is delicious and freshly made. All at a reasonable price.

Set beside some of London's best parks and home to
world-class galleries, luxurious hotels, and famed
thoroughfares, the ultra upscale Mayfair is one of
London's most exclusive haunts. Here the shopping is
haute, the dining is exquisite, and the nightlife is
vibrant. A casual stroll through the area’s chic
streets will reveal that Michelin stars and
chauffeured cars are practically the norm here. Even
