After a gruelling week on the markets, this group of discerning businessmen headed out to the Royal China Club restaurant on Baker Street last Friday to treat themselves to a slap-up lunch.

No expense was spared on the grub front, as the group ordered a delicious Scottish lobster each, along with plates of fillet steak, sea bass, squid, king scallops and tiger prawns.

That little lot was washed down with fruit, coffee and two bottles apiece of the finest white burgundy from the Corton-Charlemagne and Meursault vineyards in France – a perfect way to ease into the weekend.
