Covent Garden
Whether you're headed here to check out the multitude of shops, theaters, cafes, pubs, and restaurants, or simply to be among the multitude of people who pass through this pretty part of town, you'll love soaking up the festive and historic atmosphere in and around Covent Garden. Even if you don't have tickets to the opera or a show at one of the many famous theaters here, don't be surprised if find yourself captivated by some impromptu act of a street performer wowing the crowds in Covent Garden's Piazza. If you do have tickets, you'll be pleased to note that many of the local eateries accommodate theatergoers with prix fixe menus, early dinners, and later than usual opening hours.

We were early to meet friends for dinner and London was full to bursting. We popped into a bar nearby and couldn’t hear ourselves think so we left. This place was an oasis of calm, very beautiful. The doorman was very somber but once we were in the bar we were warmly welcomed and given a complimentary drink which was lovely and much appreciated. I’ll try making Pedro ximinez and soda at home. The cocktails were lovely, we were given snacks and olives. It may seem a little pricey but not if you consider your surroundings, the service and the pleasure.

Couldn't wait to come back and try the new bar, same beautiful flowers , all lovely sparkling clean surroundings, but mostly now given over to dining, the lovely big armchairs replaced by sharing sofas, same as everywhere else . The drinks experience very disappointing, I had two glasses of champagne, not difficult surely , both not what I asked for , I'm sure the second was sparkling wine, and as dear as the Savoy who never ever gets it wrong, plus nuts were a bit stale and £80 for four drinks should have been spot on. Used to be our go to place, not now though. What a shame .

Dear robin084 Thank you for your sharing this detailed feedback following your recent visit to The Lobby Bar. I appreciate you returning to see our new look and regret that your experience did not match expectations. Champagne in The Lobby Bar should be a delight for our guests, so we will look into this shortfall with our Lobby Bar team. I do hope you will give us another opportunity to impress with our new cocktails and sociable ambiance. Should you wish to discuss your visit further, kindly email me: MarkTucker@onealdwych.com Yours sincerely, Mark Tucker Operations Director

Brilliantly chilled ambiance as you walk in with no complications to get sat down. The service was an experience! i mean this in the greatest possible way. The Lady serving us, Paola, welcomed us with a great smile and wasted no time in getting us into our seats. She had a great knowledge of the drinks menu, being able to suggest drinks that were fit for our emotional requirements. Organised and efficient, the staff chat was on point and not awkward at any part of the evening. A classy place i would happily suggest to friends/ colleagues and also for myself to come to again, 1. for the fantastic service and 2. some brilliantly created cocktails. One Aldwych - 5 star

We were absolutely blown away by our experience. The afternoon tea was absolutely amazing. The staff were super friendly and attentive, the champagne was delicious, and the food wowed us. We loved the whimsical themes and delectable treats. If you are looking for an afternoon tea that is a bit more out of the box and fun I would highly recommend this one.

Came here for a family meal, was very impressed - by both the service and the food! A little pricey but that's the area you're in. Would recommend to those looking for a really good meal, somewhere different. The live music was a great touch to the evening too!
