There is of course the plain old fish & chip shop in Long Lane - opposite the Valentine pub - they do cook a nice piece of skate while you wait and you can also phone and order. It's take away only though.

There is one you can eat in just off Borough High Street, opposite Trinity Street.

I've missed the boat concerning your friends' visit but if you are ever looking for something more local I would recommend the Old Operating Theatre and Garret. Its at the junction of Borough high St and St Thomas St, (opposite the Bunch of Grapes pub). I'd recommend it to anyone and particularly so if you call up before-hand and arrange to visit when they are giving a presentation. When I went we were shown Victorian surgical practises related to the removal of gall stones!

or get them to lobby a local restaurant to provide room for one-eared stuffed toys

How about taking them to Manze's on Tower Bridge Road for traditional Pie, Mash and Jellied Eels.

Get there early though (especially on a Saturday) as they queue right down the road.

Fish & chip shop - most definitely Olley's in Great Suffolk St. The best anywhere.

And Maria Moruzzi of the former Borough Cafe in Park St is now open in Borough Market (next to the Southwark Tavern) on Thursday Friday & Saturday. Real traditional bubble & squeak etc.

Have a good time
