Description: Hidden beneath Charing Cross Station, the brick-lined vaults of Champagne Charlies offer a welcome refuge from the hustle and bustle of the West End and the perfect spot for wining and dining. An extensive cellar curated by Davy's Wine Merchants is well worth exploring, while ale lovers will enjoy a pint of Old Wallop, served in pewter tankards or half gallon copper jugs. The popular food menus celebrate classic British fayre, using carefully sourced seasonal produce. Various spaces are available for private dining and drinks receptions.

You have no idea that you are in the centre of London. We popped in for a bottle of prosecco before going to the theatre. It was fairly quiet as it was just before lunch time, we didn't eat but the lunch menu looked good.

A friend booked us a table. Not a hugely promising location but once you get underground it's quite something. We had a nice little room to ourselves, the food was pretty good, the chocolate dessert was outstanding and the wine list even had a few interesting items.

As other people have mentioned, another massive bonus point was the lack of music - or at least, if there was any, it was not at all intrusive. So that meant we were able to have a civilised conversation without having to shout to each other. It's the way all restaurants should be, so well done!

My wife brought me here as part of a birthday surprise and I was so pleased she did. This place is terrific!!

Was served by Sian who was friendly, helpful and funny. Had a couple of beers (served in a pewter tankard) and had a perfect ribeye steak and then the apple and apricot crumble. My wife had the half roast chicken and the pavlova. Both meals were really nice - cooked to perfection.

We came early in the evening and it was surprisingly quiet.

Will we come again?? I don't doubt it.

Thanks to Sian and the chef for making it a great evening!!

Came here for a reunion with some work friends and what was great, was that you could hire out little booths which was good as we had so much catching up to do and we didn't have to shout over each other! The food and service were great too, was so good that we came back a few months later, with more people and a bigger dining room!

I was here 5 years ago on the recommendation of my work colleague whom previously lived in London. Very nice atmosphere and loved the Old Wallop.
