Maxwell’s is a family restaurant with an emphasis on fresh ingredients that are all prepared daily onsite. Their bar serves all the classic cocktails as well as many of our favourites that they have perfected over the years. Kids are never forgotten in Maxwell’s with a big choice of Kids meals & cocktails to keep them happy.

Way back in the early 70’s, when it was nigh impossible to find a decent burger or grill in London, Brian Stein set forth to open Maxwell’s Hampstead. His concept was simple: a restaurant with a relaxed but vibrant atmosphere where friendly staff would serve these now famous burgers. Come the 80’s, after a decade of the West End coming to Maxwell’s, clearly it was time to bring a bit of Hampstead to the West End... enter Maxwell’s Covent Garden. It was an instant hit with a buzzy West End mix of residents, workers and visitors, many of whom loyally still frequent Maxwell’s today.

The downstairs bar Cocktail Baby serves up a cocktail list full of original takes on the classics. The main spirits are bourbon, rye, tequila and mezcal, of which there are literally hundreds (take some time to try a few, it'll be so worth it). There is also a long list of American beers if you'd prefer. It pretty much guarantees to provide an American experience unlike any other bar in the capital.

Amazing deserts!

Visited here a few times when I was working in London - very close by to Covent Garden tube station! Love the daily offers that they do - very great value of money! Can be extremely busy and waiting for long time to get served though.

Good food, a bit rushed in terms of having to order

Went with a group of friends to try the Freakshakes and easy-to-please-all menu! Great food and wonderful service. We will definitely be returning for Wings Wednesday (we had the hot wings as a starter and it was GOOD!)

If you haven't had a freakshake yet, you need to make your way to Maxwell's in Covent Garden. They have loads to choose from but their salted caramel one is a real dream. The food here is ace too. I came here for a catch up meal with a friend and loved every minute.

Went her for a friend's birthday. The staff was lovely and sang for her which was nice. Had one of the starters, yu-um. Then the main event: The freak shakes. SO GOOD. Not only were they super tasty but it's just a fun activity.
