We will have screens at the open kitchen counter and at the bar counter to separate the employees and the guests. We are updating an image on our policy but once complete, it will be fully visible on our website. All staff will have COVID training, separate to the modules to be completed, before they return to work.

Our Inspector's View

Adam Handling's chic venue in Covent Garden is a dream of contemporary design, with bare wood floor, black granite tables, floor-to-ceiling street views and an open kitchen, exactly the disposition London expects to see when eating out today. The bar downstairs gets reliably buzzing of an evening. Artworks add eye-catching lustre to the place, including a depiction of Piccadilly Circus, and Handling's menus offer momentous, technically accomplished dishes that make big statements. Thinly sliced salt-baked celeriac comes with sweet dates, a slow-cooked egg yolk, shredded apple, powdered mushroom and lime for an impressive opening balancing-act, before lamb comes three ways – a Wellington of the loin with charred cabbage, spelt risotto with breaded neck, wild garlic and parmesan, and a slow ragout of the shoulder topped with creamy mash – for a virtuoso main-course performance. The closing turn could be mango and coconut cheesecake. Pre- and post-theatre menus are a useful resource.

About The area

Discover London

The UK's capital was founded by the Romans shortly after they invaded in 43AD. Since then it’s evolved into one of the greatest cities on earth. From a bloody, squalid history to the vanguard of fashion in the Swinging 1960s to the buzzing metropolis it is today, London has something for everyone. There are very British pursuits like the Oxford and Cambridge boat race, changing of the guard at Buckingham Palace and an impressive collection of traditional English pubs. And that’s not to mention world-renowned arts venues, galleries and museums, award-winning theatre and unrivalled shopping – all found within a few Tube stops of each other.

London’s royal history is not to be missed. Visitors can roam around one of Britain’s finest medieval castles and royal prison, and learn about the final days of Anne Boleyn at the Tower of London or, for the less bloodthirsty, visit the Queen’s London home, Buckingham Palace. Don’t miss out on exploring the capital’s Royal Parks – from St James’ Park and Hyde Park in the centre to the majestic Hampton Court and wilderness of Richmond Park in the southwest.
