Can't decide if you would rather have a curry or Chinese? Well how about both... Bombay Chow does remarkable Indo-Chinese Hakka cuisine. Whether it is one of the noodle sizzlers or the glazed lamb chops, you will leave satisfied.

The Curtains Up
A pub with a great vibe and good food, but it has to be Barons Court Theatre downstairs that is its main selling point - I love it here!

Little Stage AcademyDRINK ME EAT ME
The Little Stage Academy is a unique class designed to teach our younger members dance, drama, singing and musical theatre all in one motivating and exciting session, all under one roof! Syllabus class work can sometimes be restrictive; instead, our classes are open and eclectic. We allow our 'Little Luvvies' to be individuals within class time by encouraging them to express themselves and release their inhibitions through the performing arts. As we know, no two children are the same and so we believe that by allowing them to be individuals, but guiding them at the same time, they will thrive and reach their full potential. These are important years of any child's life and we are here to help them gain the benefits of all these skills in one!! Website
