We had lunch on Saturday Feb 17. It was, typically, absolutely lovely. One thing made it stand out. I live with a chronic illness and some days I don't make it very far before I start feeling really very poorly indeed. Chef Jason was able...More

A very disappointing experience, from start to finish. Service was slow. Drinks took an age to arrive and had been spilt and left on the bar for a long time before we were served them. The food was average at best. The starters were warm....More

Stopped here before going to the Cambridge Theater. Was an odd set up with trestle tables and benches and practically sharing a table with other diners. Food was okay, not great but filled a hole. Waitress was overly friendly and obviously trying for a tip...More

Set in a former warehouse in Covent Garden, Belgo Centraal's staircase descends into a Beer Hall with long refectory tables waited on by staff in Trappist monk outfits and head sets. But this is no silent order; it's bustling and noisy with many customers tucking into steaming bowls of mussels in a variety of broths and platters. There are also two main dining rooms and a selection of more intimate dining booths. Seeking something substantial? The stews include Moules Blanches cooked in Bruges beer with smoked bacon, all served with frites. From the Rotisserie, choose from beer basted spit roast Belgian chicken or duck, or peruse the extensive main menu which includes the veggie-friendly Artichoke stuffed with Wild Mushrooms, Asparagus and Pine Nuts. Of course, there are over 50 Belgian beers to taste, including Fruit Beers in varieties such as cherry or banana!
