There's a genuine, wholesome charm to No.11 Pimlico Road that will make you want to return time and again. Leave yourself lots of time to get to know this open and inviting hangout, with freshly prepared sharing dishes made using ingredients made from scratch and cocktails that utilise house-made syrups and sherbets. A lesser known but mightily impressive restaurant for post-theatre dining in London.

There's no need to worry about where to eat before Wicked in London as soon as you've discovered the charming ways of The Botanist. This chic restaurant and bar is one of Sloan Square's true gems, with fantastic cocktails enjoyed on the side of three courses of British and modern European-styled food for just £18 as part of their Pre-Theatre menu.
With locally-sourced drinks and burgers like this, The White Ferry is a mighty impressive pre-theatre spot if you're after a laid-back vibe. Promising a traditional country pub feel in a stunning Victorian 'flat-iron' building, escape the bustle of central London at this boozer with loads of history and prestige. Expect good food, a buzzy ambience and an easy stroll to the Apollo Vic afterwards.
Another of our favourite pubs close to the Apollo Vic Theatre is The Phoenix, located about 5 minutes down the road on Palace Street. Warm up for Wicked with something from their evening menu, comprised of fresh and seasonal ingredients in the form of traditional British fare. You could always just pull up an armchair and enjoy a real ale or fine glass of wine, and there's a delightful garden for some al fresco fun if the weather looks good.
Fancy checking out something a little different for a pre-show meal before Wicked? The Munich Cricket Club brings an authentic Bavarian Bierkeller vibe to Victoria, which means you can expect generous platefuls of schnitzel and wurst washed down by German beers by the steinful, all served by a cheerful team in traditional Bavarian dress.
Whether you're watching Wicked at the Apollo or catching Hamilton at the Victoria Palace, Iberica is the perfect spot to fuel up. Situated below the Zig Zag building, it's all about sharing plates, Spanish flavours and menus to suit all sorts of diets; whether you're veggie, vegan or a fully-fledged meat eater.
