Popped in for breakfast. They did a good deal including a drink. It was freshly cooked and good value. The restaurant was busy.

On Tuesdays all burgers are -50%, so I ordered a burger. Everything tasted way too smokey and the burger patty was overcooked. Luckily I didn't pay full price for the meal! The restaurant is a bit tight, especially if it's busy.

We had 5 selections from their share plates and had a free bottle of wine to go with it. Not sure why the wine was free but the share plate food was very good. The waiter was very attentive. Overall a very good dining experience.

Snuggly nestled within Central London is academic and

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
