Where do West End 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!

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 Parlour, Sketch

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

Pizza Pilgrims

As well as an intimate, homely atmosphere, the pizzas are delicious and very very affordable, starting at only £5!

Savile Row

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

Gosh! Comics

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

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.

Ping Pong

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

Bateaux London Cruises

A great way to see London with a variety of different cruises along the Thames. You can even opt for Sunday lunch whilst listening to a live jazz band!

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.

London Film Museum

'Bond in Motion' exhibition - see the actual cars and gadgets of 007 made famous by the movies!

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 Savoy Hotel

World famous Omelette Arnold Bennett!

Cecconi's

Without a shadow of a doubt, the best breakfast in London. A celeb hangout, you may be sat alongside Bernie and Tamara Ecclestone, Bill Nighy and Kylie Minogue.

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!

"In 1814, there was an explosion at the Horse Shoe Brewery on the corner of Oxford Street and Tottenham Court Road. A seven metre high vat of beer exploded causing a blast that could be heard five miles away, smashing through other vats and creating a sea of 1.25 million litres of beer. It was so bad that eight people drowned."
