For eating out
Rules in Covent Garden is London’s oldest restaurant, and has shining reviews from some of the country’s most esteemed food critics. It serves traditional British fare, and it’s advisable to book a table well in advance.
Cellar Door looks unassuming at street level, though once you’ve taken the stairs down to the basement, you’ll find neon colours, outlandish furniture and an extensive cocktail list. It’s a great spot for warming up for a big night out.
