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”.

For 30 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. In a typical year, diners submit over 50,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK. Each year, the guide is re-written from scratch based on this survey (although for the 2021 edition, reviews are little changed from 2020 as no survey could run for that year).
