Pub Food with Reviews, Maps and Links to their websites

Hat & Tun

3 Hatton Wall, London EC1N 8HX, UK – 020 7242 4747

Cute little pub in the heart of Farringdon. Decent crowd, mostly office goers from the surroundings. I heard the pie served there is very good, not tried though.

Enjoyed a catch-up and leaving do at the Hat & Tun. Tuesday night was great for a round of drinks when the dice are favour. Well worth a visit.

De Hems Dutch Cafe Bar

11 Macclesfield St, London W1D 5BW, UK – 020 7437 2494

Good reasonably priced snack foods. Onion rings to die for- beer battered, tasty and not greasy! Pretty good beer selection on tap and bottled. Not expensive for the area.

Good. Prompt service ranges from harmlessly indifferent to vaguely friendly. Food used to be better when they offered more Dutch options on the menu. The Dutch offerings are now reduced to 'snacks' since the take over, some years ago, by a pub chain. But De Hems remains a great place with a fascinating history. Do come here for the broad selection of (often strong) continental beers. And the Borrelhapjes are still well worth investigating - even if the atmosphere is a bit flat these days. You haven't been to Soho, London without a visit to 'the Dutch Bar'.

St Stephen's Tavern

10 Bridge St, Westminster, London SW1A 2JR, UK – 020 7925 2286

I have been here a few times now and the food is excellent! The Sunday roast is absolutely amazing. It's in an amazing location right across the street from Big Ben and Parliament. It is rather small so accommodating large parties might be tricky. You can usually walk in and be seated right away for small groups. Even though it was packed, our food came pretty quickly. I highly recommend it.

Very busy but in walking distance from our hotel so we gave it a try. Staff was very nice and got us a place to sit. Even though they where packed we got our food and drinks rather quickly. We would eat here again. My husband got the Thai green curry and I got the fish and chips. Both where good.

Northbank Restaurant And Bar

1 Paul's Walk, London EC4V 3QH, UK – 020 7329 9299

We had a wonderful evening, we met up with family for drinks in the bar (do ask about happy hour offers and prosecco on Thursdays for the ladies), the staff (who were very good) are more likely to direct you to the top end of the wine list. The trendy bar has a wonderful view over the river (I think you can make reservations for big parties during the week). We had food in the restaurant which was very good. You pay a little extra for the location and ambiance, but it's worth it for an occasion.

Food was nice, atmosphere was almost tense, I'm not sure how to describe it, it was quite empty but somehow disorganized, location is excellent. Quite expensive.

Ev Restaurant

97-99 Isabella St, London SE1 8DD, UK – 020 7620 6192

Eaten here several times and consistently good. The food seems authentically Turkish (never been to the country itself) and i love the way they cook rice and lamb so i am in heaven. Service is a bit flat, they are neither rude nor overjoyed to serve you but they are ok.

Great atmosphere and setting. Menu was unusual which was refreshing. Fairly good service.


15 Great Newport St, London WC2H 7JE, UK – 020 7836 6308

By far the best pizza I've had in London, full of Italians who clearly think a lot of its delicious and authentic food! Great atmosphere and attentive service. Try the meter long pizza, it's fantastic!

This place serves some GREAT food. Pizza was made onsite and fresh. Good quality pasta. It really felt like I was in eating food from Italy. Those who been Italy know what i mean vs the other so called Italian restaurants.

Chinese Restaurants serving the Buckingham Gate area

Oriental Dragon

100 Cleveland St, Fitzrovia, London W1T 6NU, UK – 020 7387 7878

This is my new spot for chinese. I have been 4 times now and will keep going back. The food is excellent and the service is great! Highly recommended it.

Good solid Sichuan food and decent service to boot.

Red Sun

2A New Quebec St, Mayfair, London W1H 7RD, UK – 020 7723 5350

The taste is good at this Red Sun (小東方)restaurant. We ordered 1.stewed beancurd with minced pork in pepper sauce(麻婆豆腐)2. water bamboo fried meat(茭白炒肉)3. noodles mixed with scallion(蔥油拌麵). The first two are recommended. While the third one is too sweet for us.

Food was nice and came out quickly

Kam Fung Chinese Restaurant

27 Red Lion St, London WC1R 4PS, UK – 020 7242 5821

Lovely food, massive portions

Nice little place. Speedy service. One small thing: the dish I had could have been spicer but I'm sure the staff would have been happy go accomodate if I had ordered it spicier.

Indian Restaurants and takeaways in or near Buckingham Gate

Agra Restaurant

137 Whitfield St, Bloomsbury, London W1T 5EL, UK – 020 7387 8833

Traditional old style Indian restaurant, look and feel of the eighties but in a good way. Good food with a wide selection to cover all tastes, not that expensive considering the location and the fact that it's very popular, only one or two spaces free when we visited on a Thursday evening. Small so may need to book or arrive early if there's 6 or more in your group. Very friendly staff. Will go there again next time we're in the area and looking for a good Indian.

Was looking for a good Indian place near my hotel and this place did not disappoint. Quality food, but not the fanciest place. Also, The dishes marked spicy are actually hot. Not insane but a good amount of spice.

The Mughal's Indian Restaurant

11 London St, London W2 1HL, UK – 020 7262 3030

Absolutely fantastic service, and was the best chicken Madras that I've ever had!!! Not a drop left after i had got my nan bread to the bowl! There was a slight problem with my girlfriend's pathia but it quickly hot rectified, and was removed from the bill! So glad we happened to stumble onto this place and i will be sure to visit again!!

The food here is fantastic. The price is very reasonable. The waiters are very friendly specially Zain. He's very accommodating to all customers.

Paradise Indian Restaurant

5 Denbigh St, Victoria, London SW1V 2HF, UK – 020 7834 8746

Excellent. We have been eating here since around 1999 when I worked in Wilton Road and while I have tried every Indian restaurant in and around Victoria this is the one I keep coming back to - about once a month. However, please book if you want to eat around 1800 to 2100 as its always very busy. My recommendation is the Tandoori Chicken starter - its the best I have found in London (and I have been to many believe me) cooked from fresh, not part cooked and microwaved its excellent but make sure you get a breast portion.

Food and service was great. In our five day stay in London my husband and I made our way out here twice. Best tasting authentic food we've had throughout our Europe trip. I'm already missing their Chicken Madras.

Italian Pasta and Pizza Restaurants

Giotto Italian Restaurant

Giotto Italian Restaurant, 52-54 New Oxford Street, Bloomsbury, London WC1A 1ES, UK – 020 7323 0891

Great food at great prices centrally located easy to get to and always has available tables 👍

Melanie Italian Restaurant

4-6 Old Compton St, Soho, London W1D 4TB, UK – 020 7437 4006

My boyfriend took me here for our 1 year anniversary and it was a beautiful experience. Our waiter was extremely competent and the food was excellent. I thoroughly enjoyed the atmosphere and I highly recommend this place for romantic dinner dates. The setting and music really did the trick!

Lovely atmosphere, nice food and great service. Very nice.

Bellaria Italian Restaurant & Wine Bar

71 Great Titchfield St, Fitzrovia, London W1W 6RB, UK – 020 7580 8075

Had a wonderful dinner here. Very quiet and the wine selection was spot on. I would have liked to get a seat downstairs, maybe next time.

Very good food, good service, decent wine selection. Definitely recommend.

Vegetarian or Vegan Restaurants

Mildreds Restaurant

45 Lexington St, Carnaby, London W1F 9AN, UK – 020 7494 1634

One of the best Vegetarian Restaurants in London. If you don't mind to wait for a place to sit, - when busy - cramped seating space and sharing a table with others? This is the place for you. Mildreds offers a small regular unchanging Menu, with a daily changing seasonal Menu. Each time I have been there, the food was excellent, the service friendly and helpful. Staff go out of their way to accommodate your wishes.

Who knew vegetarian could be filled with such amazing flavour! Came on a super packed Tuesday evening but managed to get a table for three instantly on the top floor. Would definitely recommend the stir fried vegetables. The beetroot burger seemed to be a crowd favourite; will definitely have to come back and try it.

Govinda's Pure Vegetarian Restaurant

10 Soho St, Soho, London W1D 3DL, UK – 020 7437 3662

Cheap but tasteful - filled with locals so you know it's good and good value. We even saw a gentleman treat a homeless person to a hot meal - great to see! Try the tasting platter to get a sense of everything.

Great food, great value. Best thali I've had in London. I love the Mango burfi and the Ladhu.

Rasa Restaurant

6 Dering St, Mayfair, London W1S 1AD, UK – 020 7629 1346

It wasn't our first choice but the other Indian restaurants in Mayfair were fully booked and that's a good thing because the six of us had a wonderful time with great food and great service at a reasonable price. The location wasn't bad and the restaurant was small but tasteful in decor. I was the host for out of towners and not that experienced in Indian cuisine, but others in my party were. They said the South Indian cuisine was very interesting and tasteful. It made me look good for suggesting it and next time I will call Rasa first for a reservation.

I love the food here went twice three years apart , there is a really good variation of both vegetarian and meat options available. The service is very quick and you feel relaxed to enjoy the meal. The mango lassi is amazing!!!! I had two

Wine Bars and Cocktail Bars

The Covent Garden Cocktail Club

6-7 Great Newport St, London WC2H 7JA, UK – 020 7836 9533

Love this place, always have a great night. The atmosphere is great. The staff are friendly, cocktails are wicked and the shots are awesome. Definitely worth a visit, highly recommended.

Went for the cocktail masterclass, manager was so friendly and knew his stuff. Had an absolutely great time and was well worth the money Stayed after during happy hour (2 for £12) and got great value for money! Highly highly recommend taking the class or at least going for a casual drink

Boyds Grill & Wine Bar

8 Northumberland Ave, Westminster, London WC2N 5BY, UK – 020 7808 3344

It was a great dining experience. Incredibly friendly service, Goda was such a personable and bubbly server. Great food, great atmosphere, and overall just had a nice time for my last night in London visiting from the United States at this location. :) You won't regret it! Great food as well.

Our waitress was sweet and extremely personable. The food was delicious and we left completely satisfied. Excellent place to treat yourself.

Archer Street

3-4 Archer St, Soho, London W1D 7AP, UK – 020 7734 3342

My fav place in Soho for a good singalong and dance. Could not recommend it more if you can get in. With no booking you may struggle on a Friday and Saturday night even if the venue is not full at all due to the way you look and dress. Just a heads up.
