Came to Rail House for early birthday celebration with my partner and absolutely loved it. Our waitress Shauna was really helpful, recommend couple of house cocktails which were amazing. Mac&cheese & tuna tartare is a must. Definitely coming back for brunch !

First visit to the Rail House Cafe, thoroughly enjoyed it. Loads of excellent Veggie options and some really good beers.

If you only had an afternoon to experience London on a
grand scale, Westminster would be a wise place to
start. The ornate Houses of Parliament and Westminster
Abbey sit adjacent at a corner of Parliament Square,
and a short stroll along The Mall leads to Buckingham
Palace. Trafalgar Square and Nelson's Column are just
up the road as well. As captivating as the
architecture is, the wonders of Mother Nature are
