We have chosen not to use digital menus but each guest will take their menu away with them as a souvenir so it won't be reused. 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

Now firmly established as one of Covent Garden’s go-to fine dining restaurants before or after the theatre, Adam Handling’s stylish venue combines a buzzy downstairs bar with a contemporary dining room benefiting from floor-to-ceiling street views. Handling’s terse menus offer highly accomplished dishes displaying a deep skills set and intelligent use of top drawer raw materials. Scottish lobster comes with scallop and lemongrass, while veal sweetbreads are imaginatively teamed with lemon and truffle. Main courses include turbot with mussels and pak choi, and pigeon paired with beetroot and pink peppercorn. Close with passion fruit, miso and tarragon.

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.
