Joe Allen in Covent Garden was first opened in 1977, a sister restaurant to the original New York site, named after its owner and creator. Located just a stone's throw from London’s best theatres, our American all-day menus, from breakfast, brunch through to post-show dining, offer something for any time of day.

The grilled swordfish served in a lemony, oily, capery slick of loveliness with a carby hit of smashed potatoes has ended up on my 2017 Best Dishes Ever list. This was simply a lovely dinner in a venue that celebrates the pleasures of good company and a convivial vibe…De Niro’s development could have broken this restaurant.
