Tis the season for work Xmas lunches. 20+ people, some not drinking, some drinking a lot at restaurant prices, some deliberately having main only etc.  Then comes the the single bill with murmurs of not dividing total by the number of people, accompanied by the inevitable and protracted dissection of who had what... :-\

Tis why I am glad to live 100 miles from my nearest office. I never have to attend works Christmas does. 
I think you'll find it's a bit more complicated than that.

Great advantage of being retired too!

Cheap, cheerful, amazing food, huge menu.

Not quiet and intimate but great fun.

I could heartily recommend Mildred's but not in NW London, more central, but if you are ever heading that way give it a try.  There are 4 of them in Dalston, Camden, Soho and near Kings Cross. 

They don't take bookings and when I tried the Soho one we were half an hour early and there was already a queue.

That really looks good, a place I would definitely enjoy, unfortunately not oriented towards "non-spicy" eaters.....

There's always the veggie burger and chips.

They do Jain (no onion & garlic) variants and might rustle up a non-spicy dish on request.
