The Riding House Cafe is a smart brasserie that’s perfect for literally everyone, and almost every occasion. The upmarket gastropub and bistro-style dishes will always deliver - think chopped salad with halloumi, or a posh-yet-incredibly satisfying mac and cheese. Also factoring in the central location, it’s a useful place to know for last-minute dinners and get-togethers, and for when you’ve forgotten to book something for date night. The brunches here are a classier take on the usual Soho places you’re familiar with, but bear in mind it’s popular at the weekend, so book ahead if you want the super-comfy orange sofas.
