If you’ve been for a post-work or first date drink in the Lobby Bar at the Trafalgar Hotel you will, at this point, be thinking that it is indeed a pretty cool bar to hang out in but no one in their right mind would bring a baby. Well, you would be right. And wrong.
We had been out and about one weekend with Jack when he was just a few months old and he desperately needed feeding and I, equally desperately, needed a coffee and refused to go a step further. We hoped the Trafalgar would be up to the challenge.
We discovered that during the day, The Trafalgar is generally quiet and civilised in a rather cool kind of way. There are not many places in the vicinity of Trafalgar Square one can say that about. As such, it made a perfect daytime escape from the melee of Trafalgar Square.
There were no raised eyebrows, and whilst the too cool for school staff are not necessarily the friendliest in the world, they are efficient. Coffee procured, milk bottle warmed and all seemed right with the world again. They even have a baby changing table in the disabled loo so either of us could change Jack.
The food in the Lobby Bar is mainly small plates in an Asian fusi0n style. Not bad for a snack or light lunch. A yummy mummy, daytime secret in the middle of Trafalgar Square. Shhhhh, don’t tell anyone…
