Looking for a little inspiration - I’m trying to find a space for afternoon drinks and some light bites in London (West or can be Central, ideally), for my boyfriend’s birthday in November, and nowhere is quite fitting the bill. Basically we just want a table for 8 where people can come and go, rather than a set menu and sit down meal. Below is where I’ve tried so far, to give you an idea of the wheelhouse:
The Pelican - can only do a set menu and everyone would need to arrive at one time
Gold - a possibility but likely again everyone would need to arrive at same time
Franks at Maison Francois - not open until 5pm
310 Portobello (Straker’s/Pelican pop up) - unsure if they’re still running in November
Any help, I’d be super grateful - I have a great mental rolodex for restaurants for a formal sit down meal, but pubs/casual drinks is proving a little harder!
Thanks so much,
