Where do Covent Garden locals go?

Dishoom

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

Holborn Grind

The coolest coffee shop and cocktail bar in town! It's just a stones throw from Holborn Underground Station and serves proper coffee.

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.

The Savoy Hotel

World famous Omelette Arnold Bennett!

Gosh! Comics

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

The Crobar

Happy hour 4-9pm every day, which makes this place super cheap and cheerful for central London!

Kingly Court

A variety of restaurants for every occasion and budget, which are centred round a covered courtyard.

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!

Bó Drake

Bó Drake has a relaxed, Soho vibe serving a fantastic selection of small plates and sharing dishes of modern Asian cuisine. The impressive cocktails alone are a reason to go. Look out for their seasonally themed drinks available during Bó Drake Late every Friday and Saturday night too!

STK

A restaurant, bar and club all in one, so you can spend all night here! It's a great place for large groups who want to catch up over dinner without having to move on to somewhere else later in the night.

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.

BAO

This restaurant serves simple, yet heavenly Taiwanese dishes. You have to try the peanut milk and the Bao, which are light steamed buns with meat fillings. But be prepared for a long queue, because this place is very very popular!

Archer Street

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

Royal Opera House

My favourite place in all of London, the Royal Opera House stages world class performances. Although top seats are pricey, you can get cheap tickets from £5 if you're happy to be further back.

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.
