When you’re wishing you could be somewhere other than Soho, but you’re stuck in Soho, Ducksoup is the place you should probably go. It’s a natural wine bar and spot just a few steps away from the Soho Theatre, but once you’re inside this slip of a restaurant, you feel more like you’re in a backstreet in Hackney. It’s got a relaxed, personal touch which is a rare find in the West End, and the eclectic menu will have you wondering why you never whip up a plate of bobby beans with charred potato, walnuts and parsley when you’re drinking a glass of wine at home. This spot is perfect for when you want something busy and intimate, and it works as well for a casual date as it does for when you need a bite to eat before a show, or when you’re after a £10 lunch (including a glass of wine).
