The Tate Modern Cafe is a welcomed addition to the South Bank and you don't have to wrestle with coach loads of Rothko enthusiasts to enjoy it. Entrance to the gallery is free, so anyone can dine here if they so wish. Dishes tend to be of the modern European variety, ranging from the retro (haddock, chips and mushy peas) to the sublime (leg of lamb steak with creamed polenta, plum tomatoes and black olives for under a tenner). Also on offer are plenty of lunch-time sandwiches, affordable wines, heavenly desserts and, for the health-conscious, salads and seafood.
