La Barantine

Small French cafe; very good coffee. Croissants, pastries, cakes to eat there or to buy to take away. Pleasant and attentive staff.
Although musac-free they do have radio spillage from the open kitchen door which they have turned down for me on occasion.

Ciao Bella!

Ciao Bella is a typical cheap and cheerful Italian restaurant, focusing on pasta and pizza but with more substantial dishes for those who want them. It has been going for years and has friendly staff and loads of character. A white piano provides occasional but not too loud music. It is not of course quiet on a busy Saturday evening when it is packed, but there are a few tables outside and on other nights it is peaceful enough. Blown-up stills from films of the golden age of Italian cinema - especially from films by Fellini - cover the walls.

Andrew Edmunds

Andrew Edmunds has been called 'a last bastion of old Soho' with good reason. Set in a small 18th-century town house, it has been attracting loyal customers who have kept returning for nearly 30 years to its generally French food. Romantic candle-lit atmosphere, seasonal menu and remarkable wine list ensure its continuing popularity, despite – or because of – its utter lack of trendiness. Not cheap but worth it for the food, wine, service and ambience.
Open seven days a week for lunch and dinner. Booking is advisable tel 020 7437 5708

Prince Rupert Hotel, Shrewsbury, SY1 1UQ

Our room was very quiet, overlooking the churchyard, and we thoroughly enjoyed our cooked breakfast (overlooked by two suits of armour). The staff at breakfast were delightful. My husband has various food allergies. We had alerted the hotel in advance and they catered for his needs as if it were no problem at all..
One evening we had drinks in the Bar which were very reasonable. Apart from breakfast, we didn't eat at the hotel so I can't comment on the restaurants.

Greywalls, Muirfield, East Lothian

Not cheap (3 course set lunch is £29.50 and doesn't include wine or coffee) but a wonderful venue for a special occasion. Have your aperitifs and amuses bouche in the Library of this beautiful Lutyens country house, followed by an excellent lunch in the dining room. The service is wonderful. You are even presented with a tray of orange slices, lime slices and lemon slices and asked which, if any, you would like added to your tap water... Lunch can be followed by coffee and petits fours. Either in the Library again or there are various other sitting areas you can choose.

Co-op Supermarket Manningtree

The Co-op has a bad name with Pipedown members but the East of England Co-operative, in whose area I used to live, seems to be completely muzac-free. No muzac; no North Korean style promotional announcements; nix; nada. The shop is pleasant, the staff friendly, and it is reasonably well stocked and not too big!

What else to say? The local Post Office is in there. What is more, as with all co-op shop chains, you can join and vote for any change you want but you won't have to vote against piped music!

Finbarrs, Durham

A pleasant restaurant serving good and interesting food. Our evening meal chosen off the Table d'Hote menu with a bottle of wine came to £30/head.
The staff were all charming.
There was no piped music and we were able to talk and hear easily.
The restaurant is at the back of the Kingslodge hotel situated in a quiet backstreet of Durham away from the city centre. It's well worth the walk.
