Where shall we meet?: Tubino Bar, Exhibition Road

If you get that hollow sinking feeling at the thought of Rachmaninov's Piano Concerto No 3 you may need to fortify yourself with sausage, bacon, egg and chips (pounds 3.40, or pounds 2.90 before noon) and a bottle of beer (pounds 2) at one of the red gingham tables outside the Tubino Bar before the long hike to the Proms.
