As restaurants go, Dean Street Townhouse fits the bill for almost any occasion that you can throw at it. It’s a plush British restaurant in Soho that feels like you’re sitting in the lounge of a private members’ club, with a long bar and loads of comfy leather booths and armchairs. The food’s good, if not particularly memorable, and they’ll do you a nice steak or a lovely plate of mince and potatoes. Breakfast here is also particularly nice. Extra points for the fact that Dean Street Townhouse stays open late on Fridays and Saturdays.
