We stopped by for a mid morning chat and coffee with friends. It was limited in range but coffee and croissant were fine.

Some sandwiches and snacks can be pricey upstairs, downstairs meals are OK, nice little restaurant, staff can be a bit grumpy at times.

Up from the country, looking for a snack before the Aldwych Theatre. Good range of food and drinks and plenty of room at 6.30 PM. Proved to be just what we wanted.

Mint tea is the best I have ever drunk. Cafe Americano excellent. Salmon dishes amazing. The right place to relax!

The Garrick is what you'd expect, really -- the coffee is good enough, the cakes and sandwiches are decent. But the decor and atmosphere are very LSE. In a word, institutional. The main reason to go here is simply convenience.

Overpriced university canteen with bad food. It's a very average canteen - they make badly cooked food look way too fancy and charge way too much for it. Don't come here unless you're a desperate LSE student.

I used to be a student there and remember always struggling to find a nice and affordable place to eat on campus. The Garrick definitely wasn't one!

Inner London’s busiest streets crisscross quiet
cobbled lanes for an effect that can be urbane or
quaint – or an intriguing blend of both – depending on
the particular corner you turn. Due to its especially
convenient location, bustling Holborn hosts an
excellent range of hotels, eateries, and shops to suit
practically any taste or budget. With major
attractions like the British Museum and Somerset House
