For a little oasis of calm in the bustle that is Covent Garden, look no further than the our Wellington St restaurant.. cosy and with a lovely little Parisian feel, we've got a fantastic new food and wine menu perfect for a quick bite to eat or a leisurely dinner before a show. There's something to suit everyone and you'll come for lunch and want to stay right through to dinner! We're located just a few minutes away from Covent Garden and The Strand. The ideal location for a pre-theatre meal, a break from shopping or a leisurely coffee and a spot of people watching.
