A Three Birds Burger and a bit of Jude Law

I booked my tickets to see Jude Law take on the role of Shakespeare's Henry V ages ago, back in July 2012. I love an evening at the theatre but, yes, I admit that the lure of watching Jude acting his rather handsome socks off only a few yards ahead of me did have its own appeal.

Jen and I were booked in for a pre-theatre dinner at the gorgeous Bob Bob Ricard.

I've been to Bob Bob twice now, both times before seeing a show. I seriously need to go here again when I'm not in a rush to get in and out within an hour!

It's one of my favourite restaurants in London. Inside it's so stylish and you feel special as soon as you walk through the doors. The staff are incredibly courteous and friendly, the food is fantastic. Bob Bob has it all.

And another thing; it has a champagne button

I still really want one installed in my house!

So I need to tell you about this burger I had. 

It's called the Three Birds Burger. 

Inside the glazed bun is crispy quail, guinea fowl and magret duck layered with an incredible game stuffing completed with a tangy orange and cranberry chutney. 

Never before have I been so excited by a burger.

It was pretty damn awesome. All three layers of meat were moist and tender and the nutty stuffing fantastic. Every mouthful I savoured and it was still gone too soon. I've never experienced the 'Bird In A Bird' Christmas dinner but now I really want to! 

At £23.25, it ain't cheap. But it is a little bit special isn't it?

Our bellies satisfied in a mere one hour and ten minutes, we headed over to the Noel Coward theatre.

Jen and I had great seats - just a few rows from the front. Not too surprising considering I booked it 16 months ago...

Having not read the book or seen the play, I was a little concerned that the poetic form of Shakespeare may leave me lost but I needn't have worried. The impressive, passionate performances by Jude and the rest of the cast made it easy to follow and I so enjoyed it. I was surprised at how witty it was too; the scene where Henry woos the French princess was hilarious!

We saw Jude at the stage door afterwards. He was very friendly and signed programmes for us all.

Sadly I didn't get the photograph with him that I'd hoped for but such is life.

Instead, here I am tweaking his nose.

 Henry V is showing at the Noel Coward Theatre until 15 February and you can get yourself some tickets here.

    I really want to see Henry V, but so far no one else I know is interested - I might have to show them this review... and burger to tempt them :)

    Hmm maybe...

    Never thought to have duck or quail in a burger, so interesting.
