Top places to get food when in London

A common misconception to this day is that England doesn’t have any delicious food to offer. Well, let me prove you wrong. Below I have listed a few restaurants and what dishes to get there.



-The Hereford Arms, South Kensington

When in London, you should enjoy a meal in a local pub. That is the perfect way to soak up the atmosphere and maybe even connect with a few locals.


The Hereford Arms is known for its fish and chips, a famous dish you cannot skip when visiting this multicultural city. Its location is perfect, close to Hyde Park, where you can go for a stroll after lunch or dinner and near the V&A Museum, worth visiting.

-The Birdcage, Columbia Rd

This pub is famous for its steak and ale pie, classified as comfort food. Who doesn’t love a good balance of steak, gravy, mashed potatoes, veg and puff pastry?


You can visit to Columbia Road Flower Market and treat yourself to a new plant baby or lovely flowers to spruce up your home.


-The Ivy, West St

This restaurant is nestled in the heart of the West End in Covent Garden. A dish you must try when you visit is the shepherd’s pie, remember that it’s a lamb-based meal. If you don’t like lamb mince, try one of the other delicious options. This place feels like a home away from home for locals, soaking up the glamorous atmosphere filled with character due to the oak panelling and modern art collection.


-Punjab Covent Garden - any Indian food

Known as the oldest North Indian restaurant in the UK, the same family has run this place since 1951, and it is now in the hands of its fourth generation.

With London being a multicultural hub, you should divulge and tuck into some glorious Indian food with extraordinary flavour and incredible sides such as poppadoms or naan bread.

-The Regency Café

A staple in the sleepless city of London, the Regency Café is a must if you want to indulge in an English breakfast. This is a quaint space in an Art Deco style with tiled walls and photos of Tottenham Hotspur players.


If you are brave enough to try a full English breakfast, including eggs, bacon, sausage, beans, tomatoes, toast, black pudding and hash browns, go right ahead.


-Richoux - Afternoon Tea

I had the pleasure of enjoying an afternoon tea here myself with my Mum last year while my Dad was off scouring nearby bookshops.


I love the vibe in this French-style restaurant, settled in the heart of Piccadilly. It has an elegant feel, which is perfect for afternoon tea. A mix of finger sandwiches, scones with jam and clotted cream, as well as a delicious pastry selection, is what you can expect here.

With love, Marie
