The date on everyone’s mind is the 12th April. Not only can we travel within our bubble but we can also head out to the pub or a restaurant to eat outside, which right now, feels like an incredible luxury.
With this in mind, we’ve complied our list of top 10 places to book a table at during your trip to London. Plus, if you’re dreaming of foreign holidays, we’ve mixed in a variety of cuisines to help bring a taste of the exotic to your London experience.

Relax by the Thames with your group of 6 friends and enjoy your own mini BBQ in the centre of London. Kick back on a long summer evening and enjoy a delicious seasonal menu that can accommodate any dietary requirements.
3.Vauxhall Bottomless Brunch
Ah bottomless brunching. It’s been so long we’ve almost forgotten how we ever stretched out a meal for that long. We’d better hop to it and get some practice in then!
4.Montague Beach Bar
Let Montague bring the beach to you. Kick back with a Pinocolada, kick off your flip flops and feel the sand between your toes. Who needs an 11 hour flight to California when this beach bar is just an 11 minute walk from your Stayo apartment?!
5.The Terrace, Alexandra Palace

Relax on the terrace and watch the world go by at this French, all day cafe, bar and brasserie. With a classic menu and casual dining you’ll have plenty of time to indulge in those familiar flavours to remind you of past holidays across the Channel.
8.The Brew House, Hampstead Heath
Head into Hampstead Heath to Kenwood House, the popular Hampstead museum and stately home, where you’ll find their cafe The Brew House. Where better way to hang out with a coffee and a snack than overlooking the Heath.
9.Casita Andina, Piccadilly
Inspired by the Andes, Casita Andina pairs Peruvian ingredients with local British produce. These beautiful and delicious dishes are prefect if you’re looking for something full of colour and flavour.
10.Coal Office, Kings Cross
