Underneath Charing Cross Station, Champagne Charlies is a Davy's traditional ale and port house, featuring an expansive cellar of Davy’s own label house wines and champagne. Cosy and rustic, Champagne Charlies Charing Cross features sawdust covered floors, candlelit tables and intimate alcoves.

In true Olde Worlde style, Davy's Old Wallop real ale is served in pewter tankards or copper jugs. Decanted daily, vintage ports are available by the glass or bottle. The Champagne Charlies dining room serves up hearty British fare and chargrilled dishes, and there is a relaxed bar menu with hot or cold dishes available throughout the day.

Traditional favourites on the Champagne Charlies menu include Gressingham duck breast with creamed leeks, bangers and mash with red wine gravy or poached salmon with hollandaise sauce and minted greens. British artisan cheeses accompany English puddings like treacle tart and custard.

Just off Villiers Street, Champagne Charlies London is found in The Arches shopping centre, near Trafalgar Square.

    Generally very good. My only complaint: there was no bread served with the smoked salmon starter. I requested some and was provided with a platter and charged £3.95! I thought bread was normally provided free of charge.

    As always we had a lovely meal with everything cooked to perfection. Waitress was very welcoming & all our dishes were served promptly. I had the sirloin steak which was cooked the way I requested. My friend had the linguini which she said was the best she had tasted. We Will be back soon.

    Lunch for two at 12.30. Not too many guests and not too noisy, so it was possible to have a nice conversation during the lunch. Nice meal and great wine. Friendly and fast service. I will go to Champagne again.
