What's in a name?

Not sure how this happened, but ended up at a number of places with off-the-beaten path names.  Just goes to show don't judge a restaurant by its name.

Albion (Multiple)

Tried this café, bakery and food store on Southbank after visiting Tate Modern. We enjoyed a tasty soup, goat cheese salad and filling steak sandwich with mushrooms. As a neighborhood restaurant, the cafe is open all-day, seven days a week. They make their own ice cream (chocolate, vanilla, caramel and lemon sorbet and offers seasonal flavors too).

Bel & the Dragon (Godalming)

We visited this restaurant and bar located in a converted church. Sunday 'lunch' menu goes into the evening and parking is within close walking distance and easy. The chef team includes a former sous chef of Gordon Ramsay at Claridges, so not surprisingly the food is fantastic.

Burgers of Marlow (Buckinghamshire)

Don’t let the odd name confuse for what is essentially an artisan bakery located within 10 minutes of High Wycombe. A Swiss family started it and the name is pronounced 'Bur-jer' with a soft 'g'. It has remained a family business since the 40s with delicious bread, pastries and chocolates made on-site.

Cau (Multiple)

If you want a quiet adult dinner and drinks with kids in tow, this Buenos Aires inspired restaurant does the trick. At the Guildford location once seated, your kids are given an iPhone in an oversized case. Among the small plates are their must-order empanadas. They also serve bigger plates and flavorful steaks (if you are really hungry there is also a 440g filet of rump).

Tanhouse Farm Shop (Multiple)

Everything is homemade and portions are large.  The soup with homemade cheese and onion scone and the quiche with trio of salads, are both large enough to share.  It has a bright indoor conservatory and for the kids, there is a nice fenced in grassy area with play structure and picnic tables along with tented seating.
