Stuck looking for a comfortable bite near the LSE? – try this staple of legal-land, typically packed with barristers from Lincoln’s Inn. It’s unlikely to knock your socks off with culinary fireworks, but regulars say a meal here is “always a pleasure, with a great choice of dishes at good-value prices”, and applaud the “professional” staff who “go the extra mile”.

“The restaurant’s regulars are a mix of LSE professors and barristers from Lincoln’s Inn, resulting in a lively, argumentative atmosphere!” at this legal-land staple, which “hardly has any competition nearby” and which some regulars feel “could benefit from more inspiration”. That said, “it’s a really reliable spot where service is always welcoming and the staff attentive and helpful; and meat, sourced each day from Smithfield, is always a good choice”.

“Handy for legal eagles and academics from the LSE”, this understated operation arguably “benefits from not having much competition nearby”, but by-and-large “does what it says on the tin” and “is good for clients and business discussions”.

“Very useful for the area” – this “low-key” operation in the thinly provided environs of Lincoln’s Inn Fields feeds both legal types and academics from the nearby LSE. Arguably its “classic” dishes “could be more inspiring”, but its performance is “sound”.
