The Admiralty

43 user reviews

There’s really only one place you’ll need to start when having lunch at The Admiralty, and that’s the pie section. Serving up deliciously made, melt-in-the-mouth classics with a hearty helping of mash and gravy, it’s a great spot for seeking respite from the bustle of Trafalgar Square outside. Fancy making it a liquid lunch? There’s a strong choice of Fuller’s ales to complement your pie juuuuust right. Lovely.

28 West Bar

1 user reviews

28 West serves up classic Americana treats with a modern twist on the banks of the Canary riverfront. The menu’s depth makes it suitable for a quick bite, but we’d tip coming in to sample their ‘bun and bones’ selection. Chicken burgers, steaks, lobsters and ribs steal the show, and there’s a delightful choice of continental craft beers and experimental cocktails for good measure.

People's Park Tavern

People's Park Tavern do proper good pub lunches. But even if they made plain old cheese sarnies, instead of the hearty pulled pork burgers and huge hot dogs on the menu, we'd still turn up and nosh down. That's because People's Park Tavern have the best setting for a lunch in the whole of London.
