Day Eleven - Fish, Chips, and Film

We did some light shopping in the morning before catching the RER to the train station. We were on our way back to London for the final stage of the trip.

Tubing to Hyde Park, we located the hotel, which was a rather large disappointment -- more on that later -- then set out for dinner at the Hog in the Pound, enjoying some traditional fish 'n chips and some Magners cider over ice. While not my style of food, I very much enjoyed the look and feel of the pub and it was good to try a local favorite.

After all the travel in recent days, we thought a quieter night was in order, so we decided to see a film.

The Simpsons Movie at the Vue

We visited the Vue Cinema in Leicester Square and purchased tickets to The Simpsons Movie. It was an absolutely fabulous adaptation and I could not have enjoyed it more. If you have not seen the film yet, drop everything and go. Now.

After the film, we stopped off at The Crooked Surgeon for a pint of Hoegaarden, then wandered about a bit, before Fai finished the evening with a bite of cheescake.
