Where do WC2 locals go?

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!

B Bakery

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

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!

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!

The Hoxton Holborn

There is nothing better than The Hoxton's full English breakfast and a latte from Holborn Grind - these places are next to each other too.

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.

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.

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.

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...

The Savoy Hotel

World famous Omelette Arnold Bennett!

Homeslice

The best authentic pizzas cooked in a wood-fired oven, served whole or by the slice.

TKTS

One of the best kept secrets in London apparently. The TKTS booth sits in the middle of Leicester Square and is the official ticket reseller for all of London's West End shows. Left over seats are passed to TKTS a few days before each show and sold at a phenomenal discount - sometimes more than half price!

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.

Bageriet

A Swedish bakery selling the best cinnamon rolls in town!
