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...

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.


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.

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!

B Bakery

A cute bakery with an even cuter afternoon tea! Different from the traditional sandwiches and cakes that you would expect...

Waterloo Bridge

Exceptional views over a number of London's most famous landmarks...

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!

Bloomsbury Square

A beautiful spot to sit in the sunshine!

Wild & Wood

The best coffee shop in London!

My Old Dutch

The best place for pancakes on Shrove Tuesday - or any day of the year for that matter!
