A great venue to eat if staying in Bloomsbury, London. A great menu which has plenty of choice at great prices. The staff are great and the food is excellent. Nothing is too much trouble and the atmosphere makes it a great place to eat.

We were in the area and decided to pop in for dinner and we do not regret it. The menu offers different types of cuisine from Indian to Italian to American. The service was excellent and food was appetizing. The only fault I can give is that wine should be served in proper wine glasses and not the normal Soft... More

Had dinner twice in two weeks. Overall, very happy with it. We had the set menu - 2 courses for £12.95 and 3 courses for £15.95. We thought it was a bargain. The deep fried squid rings were nice - juicy and soft. The world breads were interesting and delicious. We also liked the taco loco - although a messy... More

God this restaurant is awful. I remember Giraffe being bad a few years back when I stopped going. I now remember why. The food is expensive and really bloody awful. Period. If you're going to do octopus, then do it properly. Do not state - 'well that's how the chef does it and we only have one chef' - comments... More

It's always a hit when we come here. A nice place to eat when taking a break from Great Ormond Street. Lovely burger. Good gluten free options. Particularly the naked burgers. I would always recommend.

Popped in here on a Thursday evening. The Brunswick one isn't as big as some other branches but they were fairly quiet and there was plenty of choice of where to sit. We enjoyed a very tasty garlic bread and olives plus a nice ice cream and sorbet combination. The coffee and mint tea we had were also enjoyed. No... More

Staying in Bloomsbury

Neighbourhood Profile
Snuggly nestled within Central London is academic and leafy Bloomsbury, an area that boasts walking distance access to many of London's most popular attractions. It is also home to some of Britain's most celebrated museums, including the must-see British Museum. Despite an understandable popularity with students, tourists and day trippers, vast sections of Bloomsbury retain a quiet, residential feel year round and throughout the week.
