Great for pre-theatre

Met friends for a pre-theatre snack and drink - nice and central, smart surroundings, good small-plate choice, and varied drinks menu. Very pleasant.

The Charing Cross Hotel looks swell these days, and it is EXTREMELY useful having a bar so close to Charing Cross Station.

We visited the bar before our faulty towers experience meal. The bar staff were very helpful to a gentleman who wanted a martini, they made him one in a cocktail shaker. One of our party ordered a tea and one of the staff took it through to the dinning room for her, nothing was too much trouble. Mx

take a seat at the bar and enjoy a glass of English sparkling wine after your theatre outing or perhaps after enjoying dinner in the restaurant.

If time allows we often pop in here for a cocktail or several when in London either to fortify us for the evening ahead or to relax before heading home. It is so convenient for both the overground and underground stations. The service can be a little slow and prices are what you would expect from an elegant central London... More
