Covent Garden & Holborn

Meat pies and Victoriana at Foggs Tavern

Following in the steps of its Mayfair sister bar, Mr Foggs Tavern is the second Victorian-themed venue from London’s’ Inception Group, and delivers the same full-on sensory experience that we’ve come to expect from the buzzing restaurant collection.

Le Garrick

Exposed brick and distressed plasterwork speak more to the age of the restaurant, and are authentic little reminders of its maturity.

Heliot Steakhouse

Fillet steak is medium rare on the nose, as is the larger sirloin steak we also order. Both graduate in colou from a blackened exterior through to a plumby red.

The Ship Tavern

The menu is based around traditional British fare, and a steak and ale pie full of stewed meat and thick, unctuous gravy, and topped with a lid of buttery pastry reminds us why this is such a classic.
