The Hidden Soho Courtyard With Three Floors Of Fab Food • Kingly Court


Can’t decide where to eat tonight? Head to Kingly Court.

It’s not quite a street food hall, but Kingly Court is still an outstanding choice for the indecisive foodie. Head through the pale blue alley, and you’ll find a multi-storey courtyard bursting with brilliant restaurants. [Header image: bookwormkat]

Like a Tardis, it’s a lot bigger on the inside than it looks from the outside…

There are no fewer than 21 bars and restaurants to choose from in this blessed quadrangle, making it a great shout when you’ve forgotten to book a table anywhere and you’re meant to be meeting in thirty minutes. With so many great options available, you can bounce from place to place until you find the table you need. Here’s where we’d eat…

1) Dirty Bones

Explore the flavours of Peru at this restaurant. The key dish is ceviche, neat bowls of raw fish marinated in punchy citrus sauces. Perfectly refreshing in the summer.

8) Wright Brothers

Seafood and eat it at Wright Brothers’ Oyster House, where the definitive dishes are enormous, icy platters of fresh shellfish.

9) Disrepute

Head underground to this VERY aesthetic cocktail bar, the home of many historical indiscretions, and perhaps, after enough top-notch drinks, a few new ones. You’ll need to book, though.

10) Cahoots

Cahoots 0030

Last but by no means least, this legendary basement bar (which you can only visit with advance booking, FYI) is all decked out in retro tube furniture, and the Blitz spirit is amped up with punchy, inventive drinks that’ll have you leaving later than the Northern line. Find out more about Cahoots.

Other great options
