“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 Holborn is a contemporary, airy restaurant and bar housed in an old Lloyd’s bank. Memories of the buildings former use can be seen in the basement where we safe guard our ‘liquid gold’ (beer) in the banks former safe, now converted into a beer cellar.
The 130 cover restaurant has shared bench seating in the traditional beer hall style and is dominated by a fun abbey pane glass window. The generous bar or bierdrome is the perfect spot for an after work tipple or relaxed get together. Natural light pours through the full length windows looking over bustling Holborn and our outside seating area. The whole venue is a very versatile space and is available for exclusive hire, or can be hired semi exclusively for dinner or drinks parties.
