The food we got, after a long wait, was quite good. Service was not just slow but waitress was quite clumsy - dropped cuttlery on my little sister! Besides that the food was quite good...

I went to the Loose Box for breakfast with my two children. For much of the time we were the only customers in the place. It has nice decor, and real linen napkins. The choice of food available seemed fine, so we gave our order and waited. I was having scrambled eggs, toast and avocado. My son ordered the French... More

I went here mid week with some colleagues, to take advantage of the happy hour. The food was pleasant enough, and the veggie burgers were tasty with a good portion for the fish and chips. The part that let it down was service on the drinks. We'd order and it took a good 10 minutes for drinks to arrive (the... More

We were with a group and had dinner. The food is ok. I would expect a bit more vegetables. The toilets are not clean and didn't match with the overall experience. When the restaurant is crowed the acoustic is not that great.

I met a friend here for lunch when we discovered that Davy's off Victoria Street is no more. Great shame and this is no substitute. I was told by two staff that my friend hand't booked a table (he had) and was given wrong information about available wines. Not a good start and things improved with friendly staff but the... More

Sunday lunch for two. My husband had garlic prawns to start and he liked them. I had the roast artichoke soup which he liked even better! The soup was very good and something a little different from the run of the mill. Two roast beef Sunday lunches, and the beef was beautiful, which makes it. The deal was starter, roast... More

This is just round the corner from work so I use it fairly often for business lunches. Today there were 5 of us with differing tastes and as usual we were all catered for. Between us we had 2 spring vegetable risotto, one sea bass, one haddock and one halloumi and portobello mushroom burger with sweet potato fries. Service was... More

Decided to take a wander from my Hilton Hotel in Westminster and looked at a few places for food. I eventually settled on the Loose Box. 6:30 on a Tuesday evening and the place was quite quiet but the upper seating area was booked out so I got a seat at the window. June's menu was good and varied with... More

My family of 4 was staying in Westminster and ate dinner here after a long day of sightseeing in London. Great dinner, nice variety of menu, reasonably priced, friendly wait staff, and quaint ambience. Great neighborhood. We had a really enjoyable evening.

Staying in Westminster

Neighborhood Profile
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 highlights of the area too. St James's Park (arguably London's loveliest), the expansive Green Park, and pedestrian friendly tree lined paths along the river showcase the exquisite manicure provided by English gardeners. Just beyond the landmarks and the gorgeous outdoor spaces, quiet residential squares and age old local pubs offer a more subdued take on this global seat of power in the heart of London.
