Food was average. Not a lot of flavour. Shared starters were pretty much thrown at the table. No explanation of what they were. Staff very uninterested. Would not recommend.

I was invited in that place because I am Belgian but this was not a good idea. The food is so so and they invent "Belgian dishes that are not at all Belgian like the 'vol au vent' Don't take the vol au vent because it is not at all like we make it in Belgium. The rest is probably... More

Until today, Belgo Central was one of my favourite places in London. In the past, I had enjoyed a high standard of food and beer, great service, a comforting atmosphere, and was made to feel welcome. Today, it felt like I was at a different place entirely and had wasted my time. Things started off with the more quaint bar... More

Very cozy, staff were polite and quick to attend when called! We all enjoy the food most especially the 'mango' flavoured beer. Will recommend and definitely come back again! The only criticism for me was the combined male/ female toilet; I don't feel comfortable being on it at all!!!

I remember visiting Belgo during my university years - it was our favorite place to hang out during weekends for lunch dinner and social gathering before going dancing in heaven. It's been 10 years since I graduated and now working abroad. Recently had the chance to re-visit Belgo during our holiday back in London - it is not the same... More

We booked for 2pm on a Saturday and turned up on time. It was not especially busy. Our starter arrived promptly but we had to wait an hour for our main course. Other tables arrived after us and were served before us: their orders were similar to ours. In the intervening 60 minutes our waitress ignored us until I complained... More

The food was decent but what was really impressive was the huge selection of beers you could chose from. The place is huge but still has a great buzz despite the size! Make a reservation beforehand to avoid waiting but they do have a bar where you can have a drink while you wait.

Description
Set in a former warehouse in Covent Garden, Belgo Centraal's staircase descends into a Beer Hall with long refectory tables waited on by staff in Trappist monk outfits and head sets. But this is no silent order; it's bustling and noisy with many customers tucking into steaming bowls of mussels in a variety of broths and platters. There are also two main dining rooms and a selection of more intimate dining booths. Seeking something substantial? The stews include Moules Blanches cooked in Bruges beer with smoked bacon, all served with frites. From the Rotisserie, choose from beer basted spit roast Belgian chicken or duck, or peruse the extensive main menu which includes the veggie-friendly Artichoke stuffed with Wild Mushrooms, Asparagus and Pine Nuts. Of course, there are over 50 Belgian beers to taste, including Fruit Beers in varieties such as cherry or banana!
