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.

    Great atmosphere and food for every taste, affordable prices.

    We really enjoyed ourselves. We were sat at the back which was quieter and helpful for my folkes as they're older (although the music was still reasonably loud near us). The service was cheery, highly attentive and speedy with the food coming out wonderfully quickly.
    The shrimp burger was highly lauded while my dad and I found our cheese & bacon burgers very tasty indeed. I would always have eaten more of the scrumptious skinny chips (but I might be a glutton)!
    The afternoon tea is uniquely served on a mini picnic bench which my mum and her sister appreciated.
    And to top it off, they bought out a lovely little cheesecake with a candle in for my dad's birthday.

    We arrived earlier than booked but the table was already ready for us, although we couldn't have the food till two, which is when we booked for. We could get started with the tea in the meantime which was great. Thank you for the great hospitality!

    Staff were friendly, but due toEnglish not being their first language, some misunderstandings occurred. My friends weren't warned that an extra pot of tea was extra (usually refills are included in Afternoon Tea). The sandwich varieties were a bit limited, especially for the vegetarian in our party. The scone was also disappointing, but the cakes were very nice.
