Great Court Restaurant

2233 user reviews 4

One of the iconic British Museum restaurants, Great Court needs no introduction as it's literally within the venue - perfect for a fuss-free meal. Free-range chicken breast and seared bream with lemon beurre blanc are standouts on their menu, as well as delicious white chocolate desserts and colourful macarons.

A must-visit if you're a steak lover, The Bountiful Cow is a fabulous place to check out after a long day exploring London. Chow down on all types of prime cuts as well as linguine pasta and truffle risotto. With fancy eats and large glasses of vino, it's no wonder why it's one of the best restaurants near The British Museum.

Just a five-minute walk from the museum, NYX Hotel London in Holborn is a great shout for your dining destination. You can tuck into plates of slow-roasted lamb shoulder, grilled halloumi and crispy wrapped prawns. It also doesn't hurt that the venue fronts cute and quirky interiors.
