We were naturally excited when the people behind The Palomar announced they were opening a pub a couple of doors down from their Theatreland restaurant. The space itself is much smaller than we anticipated, the ground floor pub can barely fit 20 people, and the Mulwray lounge bar on the second floor is only a tad more spacious. But we were won over by the excellent bar food, including a roast pork belly and apple sauce roll that’s a potential entry for our ‘best sandwiches ever’ list.

We love Two Floors for being a no-nonsense bar in Soho, and there's a tiki bar in the basement as a bonus. Also excellent for outdoor drinks.
Pastaio is a new pasta focused restaurant in Soho and we’re going just call it what it is: a Padella copycat. Which isn’t necessarily a bad thing.
