Bow Street Tavern
Established in 1763, Bow Street Tavern can be found at the very heart of London’s famous Theatreland. Set opposite the Royal Opera House and a short distance from both Leicester Square and bustling Covent Garden, this traditional British pub attracts locals and tourists alike. It’s a great stop-off during a day of exploring the city and perfect for a relaxed pre-theatre meal.
Bow Street Tavern is a keen supporter of local breweries and boasts an exceptional range of local and craft beer from the likes of Beavertown and Sambrook’s Brewery. Gin-lovers will be delighted with the extensive gin menu, which offers everything from sloe to floral gin, and there’s also an exciting and varied wine list. In terms of food, Bow Street Tavern has something for everyone. As well as the well-loved favourites – think herb-crusted lamb and juicy rib-eye steak – the chefs provide a creative array of vegan and vegetarian options. The plant-based Moving Mountains burger is popular even with meat-eaters, and crispy battered tofu with chips and tartare sauce is a twist on a scrumptious British classic. If you’d prefer something lighter, opt for a sourdough sandwich or share a seasonal British cheese platter.
