It takes a lot to stand out on the bustling streets of Holborn, but The Fable has no problem doing just that. This enchanting, magical restaurant and bar goes the whole hog in setting up a mystical ambience but there's way more to it than just a quirky decor. The food and drink is equally as compelling, and there's frequent masterclasses and fun functions to be enjoyed too.
