“Cavernous” Belgian moules-frites halls complete with waiters dressed as monks; critics say they’ve “lost their novelty”, but the opening of the first new branch in years – in Soho – shows there’s plenty of life in the old dog yet? Top Tips – the “brilliant Continental beer selection”, and early evening ‘Beat the Clock’ deal.
“Especially for groups”, these “big”, “down-to-earth” and “buzzy” moules and Belgian beer emporia make “good-value” standbys.
Belgo Soho is in the heart of Old Compton street and is spread across two floors. You enter a bright restaurant on street level with floor to ceiling windows and an industrial feel. This part of the restaurant features an open kitchen and can seat up to 45 people so it is an intimate and contemporary space. The lower ground floor is a much larger space seating up to 110 diners, perfect for larger groups to hire exclusively. The space is divided in two sections (right and left) making it the perfect space for any event. The left side has the added benefit of its own bar so is perfect for swift beer service! Soho also benefits from 4 memorable Caves that are individually themed and can accommodate groups of up to 14 people. These intimate spaces can be used as part of a larger area or hired individually for groups looking for a real wow factor
