Value for money eating in Knightsbridge
Contradiction in terms? Think again...
Just what you need when you've spent all your hard-earned money at Harvey Nicks
We know, we know... these two things dovetail about as neatly as a Geordie teaching elocution...*
Who'da thunk it? Knightsbridge/ value for money? Well it appears you don't actually need deep pockets to enjoy some of the area's best eats.
From set-menu deals to mega breakfasts, we've been putting in the research - in between double-parking our Bentley and shopping for diamond shoes - to bring you this list of great value eating.
* before we get emails of complaint we actually ran this statement past a couple of our Geordie friends and they were fine with it. Well, we think they were fine... couldn't understand a word.

Jaks serves Mediterranean home-cooked food like lamb cabbage rolls, fish pie and pasta at affordable prices. A few doors down is Zefi, their late-opening bar perfect for spying on the well-heeled SW3 locals.
Burger & Lobster
109-125 Knightsbridge SW1X 7RJRegion:
Sometimes the simplest things are the best, and the Burger & Lobster chain owes its extraordinary success to having a menu with just three items: a burger, a lobster roll, and a whole lobster. All are hefty portions, served with fries and salad, and cost just £20.

Super hip Bar Boulud is located in the swanky Mandarin Oriental Hotel, but despite its glitzy clientele it boasts one of London’s best value set meals. Two courses are only £17, with French-inspired dishes like mussels with white wine curry cream and rabbit pate with onion confit.
