Pre-Theatre Dinner in Theatreland – where to go? 

After a request for places to eat near Piccadilly and Leicester Square, I thought it would be useful to write up a little post with my thoughts .

1) The Chop Shop, 66 Haymarket,London, SW1Y, UK

Meat heavy menu, American fayre in a modern and vibrant setting.

Pre theatre menu -£19 for 2 courses, £22 for 3 courses

Full menu available on website

2) Flat iron, 17 Beak St, Soho, W1F 9RW

Small menu, top notch steak at a good price- but no reservations!

 Example menu


3) Brasserie Zedel, 20 Sherwood Street London W1

Stunning French Art Deco restaurant offering traditional brasserie food. Bar Americain in the same building also does great cocktails 

Set menu– 2 courses £9.75, 3 courses £12.50

4) Sophie’s Steakhouse, 29-31 Wellington Street, Covent Garden, London WC2E 7DB

Really great pre theatre menu at Sophie’s and always guaranteed good food and drinks with a lively atmosphere. 

Theatre menu– 2 courses £15, 3 courses £18


5) Joe Allen, 13 Exeter Street London WC2E 7DT

Cool basement American restaurant – always likely to see a famous face in here. Good burgers and cool theatre postered walls. Joe Allen burger is off menu but is very tasty!

Set menu– 2 courses £14.75, 3 courses £17.50
