Soho and Mayfair

Soho is a lively part of central London. It’s bounded on the north by Oxford Street, on the east by Charing Cross Road, on the south by Shaftesbury Avenue with Regent on the western side. The nearest tube stations are Oxford Circus, Tottenham Court Road and Piccadilly Circus.

Just across Regent Street, Mayfair starts and it stretches right over to Park Lane and Hyde Park.

There are many pubs and restaurants in these areas and I’ve listed a selection of the ones I’ve been to recently.

Soho also contains the famous Berwick Street, and I wrote an article many years ago for a previous website about the delights of Berwick Street and its market. I’ve reproduced my Berwick Street article here along with some recent amendments.

Eating in Soho and Mayfair

These restaurants are worth a try:

  • Soho Pizzeria in Beak Street – similar setup to a Pizza Express but interesting variations. Live music every night.
  • Melati in Great Windmill Street – a fantastic Malaysian/Indonesian restaurant just behind the Windmill Theatre.
