There is wide choice on Oxford St around the White Star Hotel/Bar/Restaurant (which I love). Have a look on Google Streetview.

Hi Stella1250

I have to say that you both sound a perfect fit for Cunard, you're sure to have a wonderful time. The Queens Grill "experience" is superlative, I enjoyed it myself on QM2 just over a...

I didn't find it too bright at all (a little over a year ago, post refit). Maybe the photos you've seen were taken with the lights "full up"?

Mind you, I've not been in QG on QE or QV.

On almost every voyage, esp QM2 crossings, I've seen men in "black tie" on "informal" evenings.

I've done this myself when either a "formal night" wasn't scheduled (on a short cruise), or to...

I enjoyed prompt, faultless service in the Queens Grill Lounge on Queen Mary 2 exactly a year ago.
The tea and food served was equally superb.

Nothing to complain about from me :)
