Wondering what some of the best restaurants near Westminster? We can take the tube if there is a restuarant that is a little further out. We are open to all cusines however, we do not want to go anywhere that requires a suit. We will be in London from August 21 -August 25. Thank you in advance! Please list your favorite dish or what the restaurant is known for :)
Wesley's Café is fantastic! It's in Parliament Square and it's a bit tucked away (it's located under a Methodist church!), but it's definitely a hidden gem. It's a lovely spacious setting, and it's great for lunch if you're spending the day in Westminster. The prices are really good too - considering typical London prices it's very reasonable! Last time we went I had stir-fry chicken with sesame noodles which were deelish! They have daily specials though so their menu may change depending on the day you go in. Hope this helps :)
Where in Westminster? It is a huge area. Do you actually mean near Westminster Abbey?
Do you mean the area around the abbey/houses of parliament or the wider Borough of Westminster?
Either way there are literally 100s of restaurants within walking distance of the area.
The best place to start is to look at the Timeout website. It provides a good, up to date list of restaurants in London with reliable reviews.
Places I enjoy visiting include Brasserie Zedel (french-piccadilly circus ) Shoryu (ramen- piccadilly circus), darjeeling express ( "indian"- Carnaby Street), Dishoom ("indian"- a few branches across town), tas (anatolian/Turkish - across town), Blacklock ( meet focused- soho and the city)
We are staying at The Royal Horseguards
Emma - You have the same taste that we do all your recommendations looks divine! Are you local?
TillyMae - My husband's name is Wesley so now we have to go!
Yes I'm local.
There isnt much in the area near that hotel but it's only a short walk to Covent Garden, which is restaurant central. You could also take the footbridge over the river to the area around the Royal Festival Hall. Lots of OK restaurants there. The Green Room just behind the festival hall is nice with some outdoor space. It is also run by the local community so that's a plus.
If you like Italian food we enjoy Cafe Murano https://www.cafemurano.co.uk/. We’ve dined at both. One is in Covent Garden which I think is close to you.
Another vote for Cafe Murano. It’s not cheap but the quality of the food and cooking is excellent.
