SquareMeal Review of Champagne Charlies

1

"GOOD"

Part of the dependable Davy’s stable, this sprawling basement bar in the arches beneath Charing Cross station features the group’s signature styling with sawdust floors, wood panelling, exposed brick & antiquarian knick-knacks. As the name suggests, there’s a range of fizz on the wine list – from reasonably priced Davy’s Célébration NV to Roederer’s Cristal at £200 – alongside interesting international reds & whites, bolstered by quality own-label bottles. Ports, sherries & Madeira feature too, while draft ales such as Old Wallop will please beer buffs. A revamped menu emphasises classic British dishes: think slow-cooked chicken leg in red wine, grilled chicken club or bangers & mash with Madeira gravy and homemade onion rings. Cooking doesn’t disappoint & swift service keeps local workers happy. ‘A cosy, reliable spot,’ concludes one reader.

We went for the set 2 course pre theatre meal for £15.95 & were pleasantly surprised when they offered a 2 course meal & a glass of Prosecco for £19.95 Starters were smoked salmon & mozarella with cured ham - both excellent. For main we had slow cooked chicken leg outstanding. Looking forward to visiting again

Came across this restaurant by chance, when looking for a place to eat pre-theatre at Charing Cross Theatre. Great food - 2 courses 15.95 & they catered for my Celiac friend fantastically even though there was nothing on the menu to cover this. Will go there again in a heart beat

Hidden off the street, under arches, the small doorway hides a small gem of a bar / restaurant. Ideal spot for after work drinks, friendly bar staff & plenty of places to sit whilst waiting for your friends to arrive. Waiting alone, I didn't feel awkward. The usual Davys wine list holds many good priced wines, along with specials. Bar food available of which I tried the salt encrusted pork & apple bap with crackling crisps & it didn't disappoint. Tasty, tender pork just perfect & well presented.
