The perfect expenseless lunch

A special offer to readers of Da Steeps Speaks from The Rib Room Bar

This morning, parliamentary blogger Guido Fawkes revealed on Twitter that MPs can purchase a lunch of a ribeye steak with hand cut chips, bĂ©arnaise sauce and a glass of Merlot for just £10.15 at the House of Commons. "How incredibly swell," was the first thought that entered my mind.

Meanwhile at Knightsbridge’s Jumeirah Carlton Tower’s The Rib Room Bar, us mere mortals can enjoy an equally civilised meal by head chef Ian Rudge for a similarly reasonable price of just £12.

Until the end of the month, diners at the bar can experience a Casterbridge Aberdeen Angus rib of beef burger that is topped with glazed onions, mustard, Sussex crumble cheese and homemade ketchup with steak fries and a glass of beer or wine for just £12. The offer is available at The Rib Room Bar from Monday to Saturday at lunchtime during January.

By the end of such a glorious meal, you’ll have no doubt forgotten any desire to put in a claim for that duck house you’d seen earlier at the Harrods sale.
