Guide to London hotels, restaurants, pubs, shopping, art and museums


Many restaurants in central London add a 'service charge' to the cheque, usually 10 to 15%. This is increasingly replacing the custom of tipping waiting staff.

Some restaurants offer special 'theater menus' (up to 7.30 pm and sometimes after 9.30 pm). These are less expensive than the regular menu.

Different areas are well known for different types of restaurants: Soho for trendy restaurants, Covent Garden for vegetarian food, St James's, Mayfair and Knightsbridge for expensive restaurants. Chinatown for Chinese food, the East End for Indian food and along the Thames for restaurants with a view.
