In recent years access to London's restaurants has improved. The result is that disabled people are increasingly finding it easier to enjoy the many eateries London has to offer.
However, not all restaurants are accessible. Smaller independent restaurants sometimes have restricted access, particularly those in older buildings.
Restaurants with multiple outlets (chains) are often accessible, but not always. If a particular outlet is not accessible, there may be an accessible one nearby.
If a restaurant does not appear accessible, make sure you enquire. Staff may be able to assist, for example by guiding you to an alternative entrance, bringing out a portable ramp or providing a menu in large print.
Inclusive London is an online nationwide access register to buildings, venues and services. Inclusive London's listings are compiled from Access Audits, guided telephone access assessments, information supplied by the businesses listed and user-contributed information.
