The Cutting Room might sound like a Nirvana B-side track but it’s actually a pretty charming place to get some drinks, or some seasonal sharing plates, or both. This place has a relaxed, rustic dining room on the ground floor, and then more of a bar situation downstairs in the basement, complete with cosy archway booths hidden past the bar. Whether you’re here for a full sit-down meal or stopping by for their live music sessions on the weekend, you should definitely get involved with their lamb croquettes and the artichoke, spinach, and parmesan dip - it’s excellent. And if you ever find yourself wandering the streets of Fitzrovia late at night, this place is open until 1am from Thursday to Saturday.
