Second time here and enjoyed it again. Fab chicken pie and chips. Really tasty and not too big. Just what I needed. Good friendly service. Love the little covered booths for sitting in.

Inner London’s busiest streets crisscross quiet
cobbled lanes for an effect that can be urbane or
quaint – or an intriguing blend of both – depending on
the particular corner you turn. Due to its especially
convenient location, bustling Holborn hosts an
excellent range of hotels, eateries, and shops to suit
practically any taste or budget. With major
attractions like the British Museum and Somerset House
