The best restaurants for dinner around Bedford Corner Hotel

Charlotte Street

Charlotte Street is just a five minute walk from Bedford Corner and boasts some incredible restaurants — if you’re short on time, or just too hungry to wait, head here first. 

Lisboeta is a Portuguese restaurant bringing the buzz of life in Lisbon to the streets of London.  Showcasing seasonal produce alongside iconic aperitivos and signature cocktails, Lisboeta offers an authentically inspired feast. 

If Japanese is more your thing, try Roka or Kazu — contemporary Japanese cuisine including sashimi and maki, robata and tempura. Roka offers tasting menus and delicious desserts, while Kazu lets you choose from a wide variety of noodles, rice and nigiri. 

Ampeli is a Greek and Eastern Med inspired restaurant showcasing authentic dishes and Greek wines. From house marinated olives and sourdough, to dolmades, charcoal beetroot and Josper grilled octopus, this is a feast you won’t forget. 

Ever wondered exactly what goes on behind the kitchen door? Kitchen Table brings the theatre to your dining experience by giving you full access to the chefs. You’ll be seated at a horseshoe shaped counter to watch James Knappett and his team prepare and serve your meal, while talking you through the process as you sip from a wine list curated by award-winning sommelier (and James’ wife) Sandia Chang. 

The Kitchen Table menu changes daily according to what is seasonally available and each course focuses on a single ingredient such as oyster or truffle. Vegetarian tasting menus are available. 

Norma embodies old world Italian charm and hospitality in its Sicilian inspired menu, perfectly marrying Southern Italy with Northern African cuisine. 

Holding the coveted title of London’s longest standing Michelin Star restaurant, Pied a Terre is a fine dining experience like no other. Sourcing the finest ingredients and maintaining close relationships with their suppliers, Pied a Terre offers four, six, eight and 10 course lunch menus, starter and main course a la carte menu, fine wines and vegan and vegetarian menus. 

Creative, culinary and cultural experiences abound at Carousel with an inspirational and ever changing line up of chefs and menus. Open Tuesday through Saturday, with just one sitting at 7pm, Carousel showcases a new guest chef every week who creates a set menu. Drinks in the wine bar beforehand are actively encouraged.     

Arcade Food Hall

The Arcade Food Hall is just a five minute walk away from Bedford Corner Hotel and offers almost every cuisine you could ask for under one roof. From American diner to authentic Japanese sushi, Nepalese sharing dishes and Indian street food, Hanoi cafe culture or home cooked Mexican quesadillas, Arcade Food Hall is a feast for the senses and your tastebuds. Check out the menus and read more in our rundown of local lunch spots. 


Chinatown is a 13 minute walk from Bedford Corner Hotel — just enough to work up an appetite. For an authentic taste of East Asian cuisine and culture, you can’t beat Chinatown. If you’re struggling to decide where to go, or overwhelmed at the choice, several restaurants in Chinatown now offer a scannable QR code on their window which links you to a video showcasing their menus. 

From deep fried prawns with chilli and salt to Cantonese duck and rare beef pho, you can find dinner, desserts and snacks — we love this handy one minute guide for a little inspiration


London’s entertainment capital, Soho, is just a 13 minute walk from Bedford Corner Hotel. If you’re already in the area for some pre dinner drinks you might as well explore further and check out some of the amazing restaurants on offer. 

We love Blacklock chop house. Housed in a former Soho brothel and infamous lap dancing club Le Reims, Blacklock brings a gritty warmth that’s reminiscent of the Soho of the 1950s. 

Walk in to enjoy 55 day dry aged steak and chops, pig's head on toast or a pork belly bun. Fancy a veggie option? Try the grilled halloumi piled onto a stack of coal roasted Jerusalem artichokes and spelt grain. 

Blanchette offers simple, pleasurable and fresh food in a French bistro setting. Their pre-theatre menu is one to check out before a show. 

Barrafina serves modern Spanish tapas alongside a daily changing specials menu that’s unique to each of their five locations around the city. Their Soho restaurant is the original and offers cured monkfish, Iberian pork cheeks and txistorra tortillas alongside Spanish wines and desserts. 

BAO’s original restaurant is located in the heart of Soho and offers traditional Taiwanese steamed buns with a variety of authentic fillings. 

Pastaio serves Italian pasta dishes made fresh on site every day. With an extensive menu of antipasti, pasta, desserts and cocktails, as well as a brilliant vegan menu, Pastaio gives your carb fix a wonderfully authentic makeover. 


Fitzrovia is just a seven minute walk from Bedford Corner Hotel, just right for making some last minute dinner plans.

Clipstone is open Tuesday to Sunday for lunch and dinner, offering a variety of excellently executed European dishes. There’s also plenty of veggie and vegan offerings, some great desserts and a very special bottle of wine or two. 

Foley’s features a walk up outdoor bar and large dining space serving Asian fusion food, cocktails and sake. Enjoy ginger calamari and somtam, Tamarind duck or vegetable Pad Thai, with a Foley’s gin and tonic or a passionfruit martini on the side. 

For Peruvian gastronomy in Fitzrovia, London, check out Lima. Offering tasting menus, set menus and a la carte, you can taste the capital of Peru for a very reasonable price.  

Camden Market

No trip to London is complete without a visit to Camden Market,  which is just 13 minutes on the tube from Bedford Corner Hotel. And while you’re there, you might as well check out some of the fantastic eateries on offer. 

From Oli Baba’s, who bill themselves as the original creators of the halloumi fry, to Maize Blaize, an entirely gluten free Colombian kiosk, the street food scene in Camden is thriving. 

Why not try Hawaiian poké bowls from Lord of Poké (vegan options available), or Indonesian coconut curry from Makatcha Indonesian Street Kitchen?

Covent Garden

If you prefer something a little more elegant and formal, head to Covent Garden, a 15 minute walk from Bedford Corner Hotel. Clos Maggiore is a French dining experience inspired by the inns of Provence and Tuscany. They offer a la carte, set and tasting menus, a vegetarian menu and a pre theatre option so you’ve got time for a bite before seeing a show. 

The Petersham offers seasonal Italian flavours based on a slow food ethos, with meat, eggs and produce being supplied by the founders’ son on his Devon farm. 

If you’re craving some seafood, check out Oystermen, offering fresh seafood with an incredible array of oyster dishes, or FishWorks which serves a full gluten free menu. 

For elevated European comfort food, try Cora Pearl who make it their business to get you to your seats on time when you order their pre theatre menu, or The Delauney, open for breakfast, lunch and dinner. 

Veggie and vegan treats

There’s no end of vegetarian and vegan delights in London, meaning you don’t have to compromise to get a great meal. 

Try Pied a Terre, a five minute walk away on Charlotte Street, who were named no 1 vegan tasting experience in the UK for their plant based tasting menu or Kitchen Table, also on Charlotte Street, who offer a daily changing vegetarian menu based on what’s seasonally available. 

Pastaio, in Soho, offers a full vegan menu which includes their heritage grain, handmade pastas reimagined for a plant based palate. 

Sagar, a five minute walk from Bedford Corner Hotel on Tottenham Court Road, serves vegetarian and vegan South Indian cuisine including steamed rice dumplings in coconut chutney and potato bonda and a selection of dhosa. 

Stem & Glory is just ten minutes away on the tube and serves a gloriously plant based menu which includes King Oyster mushroom “scallops”, pumpkin ravioli and katsu curry.
