A buzzy, family-run hideaway in the West End, Muriel’s Kitchen Soho serves time-honoured British recipes. Quaint homely styling includes squashy leather armchairs, ceiling-suspended plant pots and vintage kitchenware displays.

Taking its name from the proprietor’s grandmother, the Muriel’s Kitchen menu changes with the seasons, and showcases the best available produce. Signature breakfasts at Muriel’s in Soho span from blueberry pancakes, to omelettes and filled croissants. Sandwiches and superfood salads are served throughout the day, while family-recipe mains include chicken & peach curry & fish pie.

Served on a miniature picnic bench, afternoon tea at Muriel’s in London is filled with classic sweets and savouries, and cakes and puds can be enjoyed on their own for a post-lunch treat. Guests can choose from the cherry-picked wine list, coffee and soft drinks, as well as vitamin-loaded smoothies.

An all-day restaurant in Soho, Muriel’s Kitchen is found 5 minutes’ walk from Leicester Square Tube Station.

    would have preferred more sandwiches and less cake.scones were amazing, could have been hotter but that may have been due to time sat on table.

    The staff were lovely and it was great to be able to book a place in central London, since so many places are walk-in only. But the bill was disproportionately high for the size of the food and drink consumed and some of the food was bland. They have two sizes of wine - small and large. Don't be deceived. This means very small (150ml) or small (175ml) and at £8.90 for a 'large' (ie small) glass of tempranillio, a complete rip-off. Clearly they had had this complaint before 'cos when we questioned whether this was a large glass of wine, the waiter offered to bring over the measuring cup. We had the beetroot hummus between us - not enough pitta bread. But then that is often the case. And it could've done with some mint or lime to give it kick. I had the squash dish for the main meal. It was tasteless, so I had to ask for a lemon to give it some flavour. My friend had the fish pie - which was tiny, contained more boiled egg than fish and came with a side dish of frozen peas. Seriously 15 quid for a small fish/egg pie and a bowl of frozen peas? Won't be going back.
