Situated bang in the middle of the 02 complex, this branch of the peppy family-friendly Garfunkel’s chain is a hot ticket for meals before or after a gig – especially if you have the kids in tow. Almost as much a part of London’s landscape as a bright red phone box or a shiny black cab, Garfunkel’s is synonymous with its salad bar (yes, there is an all-you-can-eat option), but there’s plenty more to consider on a huge all-day offering that covers everything from English breakfasts and American pancakes to £7.95 lunches and unreconstructed classics such as prawn cocktail, loaded potato skins, scampi, nachos, burgers and New York cheesecake. Over-ordering is all too easy, but a little restraint and an eye on the special deals should keep spending in check. Available for party bookings, private hire and events on non-show days.
