Where do W1F locals go?

Said

The most dreamy place for a late night hot chocolate...

Choccywoccydoodah

Just off Carnaby Street, this shop is like a Charlie and the Chocolate Factory for grown up's! All of the chocolates are hand made by the team and don't just look good, they taste amazing too...

Ping Pong

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

Kingly Court

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

Bone Daddies

A small but tasty menu of Japanese ramen dishes.

Gosh! Comics

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

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!

Antidote

This lovely restaurant and wine bar is hidden away just off Regent Street. You'll find a cosy wine bar downstairs complete with a terrace and a fantastic restaurant upstairs, which serves impressive food.

The Parlour, Sketch

Posh breakfast and striking, artist-designed dining rooms - perfect for a special occasion...

Wild & Wood

The best coffee shop in London!

Savile Row

The best tailors in Europe. Bespoke or off the rail, there's something for everyone's budget.

Rosa's Thai Cafe

Freshly made dishes with lots of taste - great for sharing and reasonably priced wine too.

St Christopher's Place

After a busy day down Oxford Street, nothing beats a quiet escape to this hidden gem tucked in the heart of Marylebone.

Mayfair Pizza Company

A hidden gem on a cobbled street in Mayfair. Simple bistro-style Italian food, a wood-fired pizza oven and really affordable for the Mayfair area.

The Gallery, Sketch

A stylish spot for afternoon tea, but be sure to check out the toilets that are shaped like eggs!

"In 1997 Rick Buckley created a number of moulds of his nose and put them up around London. Setting them beneath CCTV cameras, Buckley was mocking the controversial use of video surveillance and the ones that are still intact have become known as the Seven Noses of Soho."
