We visited this place twice today before and after lunch in search of coffee when the pub where we were due to meet a friend turned out to have a non-functioning coffee machine. I found the staff only minimally polite/welcoming but that was ok given that the sofa was comfy and the coffee ok (if spilled into the saucer a... More

I went out for Lunch with work and just had an absolutely gorgeous Belly Pork and Crackling! The service at the Loose Box was fantastic! The staff were friendly and very quick, we didn’t have too long for lunch as we had to be back in the office, but nothing felt rushed and the staff were great. The Pork belly... More

We ate in the restaurant on a Friday evening. The bar was packed but the restaurant box was empty and was enough 'air' to have a conversation. We ate different things from the menu and all of it was well presented and very tasty. The service was outstanding. Will eat here again and recommend to friends. Its perfect if you... More

I met my sister here for a late lunch yesterday, I had reserved a table but when we arrived the place was quite empty and we were shown to any table by the window - that didn't bother me though as I made the reservation online and that took no time at all. We both opted for a blueberry mojito,... More

I arrived and spoke to a young lady who seemed to be running the diary. We identified our table and I was given a number. I asked "can I put drinks on the table " the friendly response was yes of course. As we were the first in a group of 9 I went to the bar ordered our initial... More

For such good food and service, I would have expected a Monday night to be heaving busy in this large bar / restaurant. Delicious food, lovely waitress who could not be helpful enough. Low prices, large portions. Super

What makes a great burger? Quality home minced beef formed into 1/2 pound patty - brioche bun, cheese, fried onions and that's it! We can add our own ketchup or whatever condiment we choose. This one was an OK patty but with bacon and cheese drenched in mayo - yuk. As the waitress kindly pointed out, I should have read... More

This restaurant in Westminster has such potential, but failed miserably on our first visit. There were very few tables seated for dinner at 7pm, but the service was not only slow but rude. Our waitress seemed very disinterested in her job. We had to ask for several items, as did the table beside us. When we did ask for more... More

Staying in Westminster

Neighbourhood Profile
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 highlights of the area too. St James's Park (arguably London's loveliest), the expansive Green Park, and pedestrian friendly tree lined paths along the river showcase the exquisite manicure provided by English gardeners. Just beyond the landmarks and the gorgeous outdoor spaces, quiet residential squares and age old local pubs offer a more subdued take on this global seat of power in the heart of London.
