A full English breakfast in a (posh) cafe called the French Kitchen may sound slightly obscene, but don't let the name put you off. They do a smashing Eggs Benedict too. The service is swift, and off-peak this is a great location for a low-key...More

A bit pricey this restaurant, but well worth it - try the mac n cheese with a side of fries, it is delicious. I am ashamed to say I always order a burger when I go out to eat, but here I tried something else...More

The first challenge with this place is what it's called. It seemed to have sneakily changed its name to Hush Brasserie between booking the table and arriving there! The result was that all our party walked past it several times. The location is a good...More

We had two breakfasts and dinner here while in London because it was conveniently located next door to our hotel, The Citadines High Holborn. Actually, we had our first meal in London here. We ate breakfast as we waited for our room to become available....More

Excellent food, generous portions, good wine/beer/cider selection. Seats a little uncomfortable, but still an excellent place to visit. 2 big courses, bread and wine £60.

A rather busy day in London saw myself and my partner's family looking for something to eat on an idle Monday evening in High Holborn. We'd spied 'The French Kitchen' earlier in the day and thought it looked a safe bet to have a late...More

Inner London’s busiest streets crisscross quiet
cobbled lanes for an effect that can be urbane or
quaint – or an intriguing blend of both – depending on
the particular corner you turn. Due to its especially
convenient location, bustling Holborn hosts an
excellent range of hotels, eateries, and shops to suit
practically any taste or budget. With major
attractions like the British Museum and Somerset House
