This is a corner cafe in Red Lion street in Holborn in a calm neighbourhood. We went there for a dinner with a colleague. The long tables are shared by guests. The portion sizes were huge and we could see very satisfied faces around us...More

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
