56 Goodge Street, Fitzrovia, London W1T 4NB
Heard about Benito’s Hat the other day and dragged 2 friends after a gruelling session at the gym. I was expecting more of a restaurant rather than a fast-food type place but boy were the burrito’s good. Stuffed full of flavour. We were served by two rather fine specimens of eye-candy which helped, especially as we couldn’t really understand their questions regarding filling, which we just blagged. We sat inside which was quite cramped but food was great. Not a place to aim for for proper gathering but if on the run or needing a quick fix throughly recommended

This beautiful looking French Restaurant just by the American Embassy is a the perfect place to come any time of day. They serve great breakfasts and their menu changes throughout the day. The food is very good, as is the choice of wine. It’s a very laid back and calming place with good service which is definitely worth checking out.

Quite simply the best Indian restaurant i’ve ever been to. the place was heaving at 9pm on a Tuesday, and it’s not as if its small, and the food was superb. Not greasy or stodgy, perfectly cooked with excellent service and nice range of beers to wash it down with.
Counter Street Off Tooley Street, London Bridge, London SE1 2HD
Situated right by the river with great views stretching down to Tower Bridge, taking in HMS Belfast, the Gherkin and many other wonderful London buildings, this is an extremely busy and unpretentious pub that’s worth checking out.
The huge bar and interior can hold many, though conditions do get cramped around the bar and the service can take a while, not that the staff are lazy, just that it is so busy.
Seats are available upstairs and in addition outside with a bog-standard menu should you get an attack of the hunger-pains!
Large selection of draught beer and cider alonsgide many bottles means there’s plenty of choice.
Be warned, on a summer evening this place is heaving, but then you won’t mind going outside and taking in that aforementioned view.

This large Bagel place is popular with the local workers at lunchtime and the service is quick enough that your whole break isn’t wasted standing in a queue. There are a variety of toppings and different flavours of bagel so you can mix and match and there is plenty of seating with wi-fi access for those that desire it. Wouldn’t say it’s the best food in the world but certainly better than most fast-food chains.

Looking for a decent bar to relax with your mates in, then you could do much worse than here.
With lots of seating upstairs and down, including lots of comfy leather sofa’s, and tables outside for when it’s warm there’s plenty of room for large groups.
The bar is situated downstairs and has a god variety of drinks and the usual main spirits. They also serve a range of coffee’s for those being sensible.
Undoubtedly, the best thing about this bar is the food menu, it is simply fantastic. Home-cooked food at great prices, with particular mention to the large burgers with thick wedges, this is relaxed service at it’s best. Admittedly, i’ve only ever visited this venue early afternoons on a Saturday as it’s right next to where i train, but i can’t help but think that it’s high standards and friendly service aren’t replicated at other times.
Great little bar which is definately worth a visit.
42 Tooley Street, Southwark, London SE1 2SZ
This popular, after work venue right by London Bridge Station is always busy. With it’s sawdust floors and wooden beams it is very characterful and there are plenty of side rooms and tables for you to be able to find somewhere to perch.
The main draw are it’s wine and beer selections starting at an average price and rising to the ridiculous for those that may want to splurge. There are some good snacks available too, the nachos in particular are done very well.
The crowd can be a bit stuffy and the staff seem to also overstate their own importance. When asked which wine remember to specify and not state 'whichever’ as i did once only to find the most expensive glass of wine being poured, an arrogant and frankly rude gesture which cost them a large group of drinkers that night as none of the people i was with were impressed by the blatant greed.
Still this bar has enough charm that it does warrant a look though anyone looking for a place to chill and relax may decide to go elsewhere.
102 Tooley Street, Southwark, London SE1 2TH
The Suchard Thai restaurant is a fantastic little place on Tooley Street which is very popular of an evening. Upstairs is very intimate with many table’s squeezed in but there is a downstairs which is capable of holding large parties.
The menu is vast. Loved the duck starter to share or one of the many starter platters which give you a good sample to begin with. The mains arrive quickly and are equally excellent with some very hot dishes for those of us who like that thing, which i do.
You can wash the food down with some strong thai beer and the service throughout is quick. Pricewise it won’t break the bank and you’ll probably find yourself becoming a regular here very quickly.
96 Tooley Street, London SE1 2TH
This little cafe on Tooley Street serves the most amazing but bizarre roast meat sandwiches which pile on not just the meat but yorkshire puddings, potatoes and gravy as well. It’s like a whole sunday lunch on a large sandwich. It’s not for the faint-hearted but one which carnivores and the hung-over will appreciate. They also do a variety of other sandwiches and meals with good vegetarian options for those into animal.
Venue and service and also of a high standard
10 Kingly Court, Carnaby Street, London W1B 5PW
Tucked away in Kingly court, just off Carnaby Street, is this little jewellery boutique which has solved many a present problem for female friends.
Capitalising on the explosion of Burlesque in London the jewellery is striking, bold and fun. This is strong jewellery for strong women.
The items themselves can range in price from £10 to over a hundred so there should be something for everyone. They’re mostly known for their fun and intricate bracelets which can be pricey but are beautiful and my one friend is often complimented on by the various items she’s appropriated from there.
