We went to a matinee performance and then to Savoir Faire for dinner. We arrived in time to benefit from the pre-theatre menu (cheaper for two courses before 7pm). Food arrived quickly and was plentiful and hot. Great value.

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

They were really helpful when i rang to ask what time we should book for, and very flexible. 5.30 sounds good - but mention it to them so they know.
