One Aldwych

The afternoon tea at One Aldwych is a magical experience. Inspired by Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, the steaming cocktail is just one of the culinary spectacles!

Gosh! Comics

A wealth of graphic novels from a wide variety of genres.

Kastner and Ovens

The best lunch stop in Covent Garden bar none. They have a daily changing menu of healthy salads and dishes to take away.

Dishoom

If you really want to taste Indian food, then this is the place to go. They offer chai (tea) in a little cup when you're in the queue and the atmosphere at this place is amazing - it feels just like Bombay!

Brasserie Blanc

One of world renowned chef Raymond Blanc's chain restaurants with delightful views over Covent Garden. Ideal for after work drinks or reasonably priced, freshly prepared meals.

Kopapa

Fusion food at its best. Using seasonal ingredients, the menu always has delicious offerings and the cocktails are some of the tastiest in London!

Archer Street

I love this cocktail bar! It has a great atmosphere and is the perfect place to take a date.

Little Water

The best and juiciest burger I have ever had! They have fantastic deals as well that enable you to get brilliant quality food for a reasonable price. The restaurant is very small, quaint and even offers cosy blankets if you're feeling a little nippy!

The Savoy Hotel

World famous Omelette Arnold Bennett!

Flat Iron

Hands down the tastiest 'cheap' steak in London. There's only one steak on the menu and it's priced at an amazing £10...the sides are great too and also very good value for money.

Neal's Yard

Bohemian cafes and shops with a relaxed vibe - the brightly painted frontages add to the quirky nature of this delightful central back street.

Ping Pong

The best dim sum in London and superb strawberry puree lemonade! The set menu is fantastic too and a real bargain...

Bubba Gump Shrimp Co.

Based on Forest Gump, this lovely shrimp restaurant from the USA has opened its first restaurant in London! Amazing food and the restaurant is decked out just like you're on the film - it has its own gift shop too!

Porterhouse

A traditional pub over a whopping 12 levels with a cosy atmosphere and two cocktails for £10 during happy hour! It's also a great place for watching sports...

Busaba Ethai

This is the perfect place for a quick and tasty dinner with friends in central London. The pad thai is so tasty and they even have an app that you can save money with.
