Fish and chips for the First Lady: Michelle Obama takes her daughters to traditional English pub for £7.95 dinner


Mrs Obama waves as she leaves the London pub last night

...The Audley pub in London's Mayfair has probably had its fair share of tourists from across the Atlantic.

But when First Lady Michelle Obama led her two daughters into the traditional pub for fish and chips last night even the normally unflappable staff were left gobsmacked.

Staff told...of their astonishment as Mrs Obama and her daughters Malia, 10, and eight-year-old Sasha traipsed into the bar....


Just a normal night down the pub: Mrs Obama can be seen through
the window of the armoured SUV to the right of the picture


Cinthia Pinto and Adriana Spanova at the table where they served dinner to Michelle
Obama and her family at the Audley Arms...


The Obama girls both enjoyed 'the best
fish and chips in W1'


Delighted passers-by try to grab a snap of the First Lady


Regular drinkers at The Audley pub..were surprised to be joined by Michelle Obama for drinks last night

Busy day: Michelle Obama raised eyebrows today with her layered look - including two
cardigans - as she left Westminster Abbey after being taken on a private tour


Sightseeing: Malia (wearing pink), ten, and Sasha (in yellow), seven, follow their mother
out of Westminster Abbey...

I'm usually kinder than most with regard to Mrs. Obama's fashion style.

Can't do that here. What was she thinking?

In order to fit in with the prols, she could have waited until they got home and taken them to Horace and Dickie’s in Northeast for a huge, gorgeous and yummy fish sammich.

I don’t know much about English Cuisine (is that an oxymoron?) but I know that Cinthia Pinto and Adriana Spanova are most certainly NOT GUILTY

Of course they support her. If the Obama health plan is enacted, there will actually be Americans seeking superior medical care in England.

Didn’t Barack return to the US? The wife and kids stayed behind in Europe?

Are the girls out of school for the summer already?

who paid for this trip, if I can ask? Certainly a first lady and kids traveling isn’t official business, right?

Remember Sarah Palin got in trouble because her family traveled somewhere with her?

I mean is it the ,”Sweat off 10 ugly pounds while

Mayfair’s congested enought without the celebs. This must have made things really bad.

Not too sure how genuine the pub is with waitstaff from Spain and Eastern Europe.

Now I really am crying. I have tried to have a stiff upper lip, telling myself not to give way to feelings of prejudice, but that outfit of layers is an insult to every American who ever was an overseas tourist.

That is just downright MEAN. No one can think that looks good. Even people in native costume in national ceremonies are better coordinated than that.

This proves to me that MO wished she were not American, but a citizen queen of some kind of superworld.

For security purposes, go somewhere that no one would think you would go. Not a bad idea. Also, the place could be secured (per Secret Service review).

Aren't those girls a little young to be taken to a BAR?
Maybe Children's Protective Services should be looking into just how fit the 0bamas are as parents.

Well, sure she likes those big, high belts.

How much longer are we going to pay for this vacation?

When are the Obamas going to begin sacrificing like the milions of people out of work in America, and the millions to come?

Never, I’d wager.

I think it is kind of nice that she spends as much time as possible with her daughters. Don’t care for that layered look though. I may not appreciate the parents politicis, but I don’t blame the children for them. I am glad they’re getting to see some historic things first hand.

It’s a bizarre, narcissistic effort to be a “trend-setter.” The Hollywood folks do it all the time.

As one who has spent numerous “summers” in Britain, the chill is extraordinarily cold and damp. Unlike the sweltering summer of 2002, everybody’s attire is typical of the Britain I visited in the Seventies and Eighties. Many establishments lack A/C in the warm temperatures but also lack heat after June 1 (landlords sometimes turn the heat off to save a few quid).

Unless it was the start of Summer vacation. Then it would be obvious why they aren't in school.

In Britain, pubs are family gathering places; hence, the presence of children is OK.
