We were a group of 14 friends going to Cabaret at the Playhouse Theatre. We had pre-ordered and the waiter who dealt with our meals knew exactly who was having what, the serving was quick and efficient. Bill paying was a bit complicated as I...had paid a deposit but the first bill had not taken account of this and there was a certain amount of confusion. Food was good and we got to the theatre on pretty good time considering the size of the group. Pre meal arrangements efficiently handled by manager Carl.More

Nice place for a drink and a light meal. Friendly and attentive staff. Close on Sun and Mon. Price was not that bad. Not too crowded either on a Sat.

I stayed at Club Quarters Trafalgar Square. So, Boyds was convenient. However, its menu has limited choices for dinner. Its breakfast is adequate, though.

Easy to find, two minute walk from Charing Cross station, Trafalgar Square, cuisine was excellent with a few original twists, service excellent, breakfasts fresh and delicious, we were well and professionally looked after by Carl, Liam, Maria and Peter. Highly recommended!

Absolutely appalling service, we were one of four tables in the bar with one waiter and bartender. We waited 5 minutes for menus and then over 15 minutes before the order for drinks was taken, being completely ignored by the server who would walk past...us making an effort not to look in our direction. After finally being served we finished our drinks and sat for another 30 minutes, no service, no offer of ordering more and we were down to the only table. Finally went over to get the bill to find the server and bartender watching football on their phone...More

A nice place to enjoy a quiet drink with plenty of seating. We were staying in the hotel and popped in for a nightcap. The staff were professional and friendly.

As we could not get in anywhere on Saturday night in London and we were staying at Club Quarters, we decided to dine in as well. We ordered wine while we decided to order the burgers and smoked salmon as well as chips and heritage...tomatoes. The burgers were tasty and the chips really good, my only disappointment was the size of the portion of chips, quite small for £3.50 and more for the truffle chips. Overall the meal was very good and the waiter was polite and helpful with our queries, we would definitely go again.More

We stayed at the Grand Trafalgar Square for one night as we had theatre tickets so decided to have a pre theatre drink at Boyds with our 11 year old, some places can be a bit daunting with a child as you’re never sure they...are welcome especially in a city location but the barman was so lovely to her and made her feel very special and a lovely lady (not sure of her title) but she said her name was Tema had a great chat with her about all sorts of things, making her feel very welcome and in turn helped us parents actually have a relax drink before the theatre, in truth every staff member was great, the place was warm and relaxing, a people watching style bar and lovely fresh breakfast in the morning, hospitality done as it should be, I could have sat there for hours if time allowed, we can’t wait to come again.More

If you only had an afternoon to experience London on a
grand scale, Westminster would be a wise place to
start. The ornate Houses of Parliament and Westminster
Abbey sit adjacent at a corner of Parliament Square,
and a short stroll along The Mall leads to Buckingham
Palace. Trafalgar Square and Nelson's Column are just
up the road as well. As captivating as the
architecture is, the wonders of Mother Nature are
