Restaurants fit for royalty: where the young royals eat and drink

Restaurant Story, Bermondsey
Spotted: Princess Beatrice and her boyfriend Dave Clark

Prince Andrew's eldest daughter was one step ahead of the game when she ate here with her beau last May – just four months later it was awarded a Michelin star. The restaurant, built on the site of a former toilet block on trendy Bermondsey's Tooley Street, has been converted into an understated but stylish space with floor-to-ceiling windows and an open kitchen. The food is imaginative and experimental and aims to tell 26-year-old chef-owner Tom Sellers's life story through the dishes. One of the creative signature dishes, Bread and Dripping, always gets diners talking. An edible beef dripping candle is lit at the table and served with bread to mop up the melted 'wax'. The 'three bears porridge' dessert is a charming, innovative trio of bowls of hot oats – one too sweet, one too salty and one just right. An impressive wine list and stellar service completes the special fine dining experience.   

In addition to the £55 six-course and £75 ten-course tasting menus, Restaurant Story now offers a £35 five-course lunch menu from Tuesday to Thursday. restaurantstory.co.uk
