Christmas and Boxing Day Eating in London?

Does anyone have some good recommendations for places we can eat in London on Christmas Day and Boxing Day?

I'd love a variety of price-ranges if possible, and probably would prefer ones that take reservations to take a bit of the stress out of it, as we'll be arriving in London early Christmas Day.

Thankyou so very much in advance for any recommendations you can give!

A lot of places are going to be closed on Christmas Day or they will require advance bookings.

To make life a little easier for us - what part of London are you staying in ?

There's no point in telling you about a great place in Bloomsbury if you're staying in Fulham, how're you gonna get there ?

Aimee, Last year I saved this link on Christmas lunch. It might give you some ideas.

I got this off of Tripadvisor last year. This question comes up every year on that site, so you might do a search there also to see if there are other suggestions.

One other thing if you are looking for something to do on Christmas. London Walks usually does a walk on Christmas Day. There site is www.walks.com

NOT everything is closed on Christmas Day as far as restaurants however be prepared to spend some $'s getting from the airport into London as public transportation is virtually nill. Many pubs will be having Christmas Dinner as well as many ethnic restaurants. Also if where you're staying has restaurant on the premises it will most likely be open. A quick search on the web found these links:

wow, thank you so much you guys. Thanks to your recs, we found several that were under a mile from our hotel, and were well reviewed online... so we won't even have to take a taxi. Thankyou so much. It's a bit hard to narrow things down without someplace to start, so thankyou!
