Trending: A helpful restaurant guide for London's media refugees
Bleary-eyed viewers tuning in to BBC Breakfast this morning might not have noticed much difference in the set or in the line-up of presenters (Bill Turnbull is still on the sofa). But, nonetheless, today represents a change for the programme, as it will now be broadcast from the BBC's shiny studios at MediaCityUK in Salford, Manchester.
For some – Sian Williams prominent among them – the move proved a train journey too far, with the talent privately speculating about the lack of amenities in the area. Where would one have lunch, for instance?
In a spirit of helpfulness, then, we thought we might politely offer a suggestion or two. Those wanting a bit of familiarity could go to the on-site Wagamama for a yaki udon. Or head to Booths, the up-market supermarket, which offers locally sourced meats, artisan bread (just like Hampstead) and lots of nice cakes. The more adventurous could head to rival ITV's building, Orange, for a pizza at Prezzo. Those used to expense-account munching at London's hotels might make do with the Holiday Inn's Green Room (geddit?) restaurant. For fans of a roast, Albert's Shed, Deansgate, is a very good shout. And if you just don't really care – Sian Williams cover your ears – you could always cross the quay and head to the Greggs on Third Avenue.
