Farage celebrated turning 55 on Wednesday and opted for the Boisdale restaurant in London‘s elegant west end.
He was spotted last year at the traditional Scottish eatery – where wine costs up to £2,550 – with Boris Johnson and his father, but other diners insist the men didn’t eat together.

The pictures of Farage happily chatting and smoking have emerged just hours after leader of the UK Independence Party Gerard Batten said the birthday boy’s Brexit Party ‘isn’t a real’ one’.
The pictures show that the visit to Boisdale of Belgravia – which also hosts live jazz and has a cigar menu – was certainly a real party.
Farage drew criticism for celebrating his milestone 50th in the Ritz in 2014.

He was pictured on the gilded staircase of the five-star hotel in Piccadilly delivering a speech to attendees, prompting tweets like: ‘You are so divorced from the person on the street it hurts.’
This time, he was pictured with a handful of revellers outside enjoying a cigarette, before catching a black cab with the female friend.
Speaking to The Telegraph in 2014, his wife Kirsten Farage said he ‘drinks and smokes too much’.
In the plush eatery there is a Jacobite-style private room that is ‘ideal for birthdays’ according to the restaurant website.
