We went looking for this place after we saw the line at The Breakfast Club. We couldn't find it! We did find the club next to it, but the restaurant itself seemed to have gone missing. Pitty...

Well after reading the reviews on here, I thought this would be a good place to take a friend of mine visiting from Germany for the "Full English" experience... sadly I was very wrong ordered two "Full English Breakfasts" with additional Black Pudding.. Then had to wait over an hour.. The waitress was very pleasant and apologised for the wait... More

Thank you for taking the trouble to review your visit to The Full English Kitchen. Of course it is disappointing to read that your experience was not up to the usual standard that we pertain to. The breakfast at £7.50 (black pudding an optional extra £1.50), should have consisted of 2 rashers dry cure bacon, 1 handmade organic pork sausage... More

On a short visit in London, I popped in there one morning as I was craving for a full English Breakfast. To my content and surprise, the warm and bubbly owner Michele informed me that all the food was free range, homemade and organic. I checked the menu and the choice was very attractive - those (rare ones) who wouldn't... More

I popped into this Pop-Up cafe on Greek St, it's in a night club during the day and has amazingly a great atmosphere and the food is to die for. Wonderful array of traditional English food cooked with so much passion you can't help falling in love with the place. The owner Michele is truly lovely, she refused to run... More

Stopped by yesterday in the mid afternoon for a late lunch while walking back from the British Museum to our hotel. The restaurant located in a quirky little Soho night club was a pleasant oasis in what has been an otherwise week of touristy, over-priced, average restaurants and taverns in London... Breakfast served anytime, so I had sausage and egg... More

I went with my friend to visit "The Full English" off the back of the reviews on Tripadvisor. We walked into what can only be described as a brothel serving breakfast. The decor is plain weird. Yes the plates and cups are traditional, but the seating and surroundings are old, with cheap black leather chairs in a tired looking room.... More

We always appreciate that our guests take the time to write about us on TA, and it is an incredible vehicle for us to see other perspectives too. The Full English is a 'pop up' Cafe, which means we 'inhabit' other business's during the period they would not normally be open, in other words, we take up residency of their... More

For those who like a traditional English fried breakfast, this must be one of the best places in central London. Excellent quality ingredients, friendly and efficient staff and sensible prices.

Stumbled across this place whilst ambling past. We were spoilt for choice of what to choose. Eventually decided to go for the soup of the day with it being homemade - cauliflower cheese...

Staying in Soho

Neighbourhood Profile
The go-to district for a good time in London, Soho hosts a wealth of world-class theatres and a compelling lineup of cafes, restaurants, pubs, bars, and clubs. At Soho's core is London's original Red Light District and the epicenter of the LGBT scene – and thus the city's hottest nightlife. For shopping enthusiasts, Soho is not only the home of London's greatest concentration of boutique shops, but also the most strategic place to set off on a tour of the world's most celebrated department stores. In the southern part of the neighbourhood lies Chinatown, with its multitude of delicious and affordable restaurants. Closer to the Thames, Chinatown's narrow and teeming lantern-lit lanes spill onto the expansive hub of glitzy Leicester Square.
