Fancy food and beer in a bank vault? That's what the Belgo in Holborn is offering as a converted former Lloyds bank, with the bank vault having been transformed into a Belgian beer cellar! Despite the building's history, the decor is contemporary and relaxing, but it's the beer list which is truly eye-catching, with over 250 beverages to choose from. The food is typically Belgian, offering treats such as Belgian Sausages, mussels and frites with mayonnaise, and a wide range of meat and vegetarian dishes. There are many fantastic, money-saving special offers throughout the year, but with even a three-course meal served at a reasonable price, this is one gastronomic experience that won't break the bank - even if it's in one.

I've not been to Belgo in a while, as it is a very touristy place, but on this occasion I was pleasantly surprised. While the menu is not very adventurous with the usual suspects, they still do a very good kilo pot of mussels and chips. And at not too bad a price either.
Will I go back? Probably not as there's so much more exciting food in London. But if I have tourists or need to choose a...more
This location is mediocre compared to the original - weak service despite being empty and loud obnoxious clientele.more
When the craving for moules frites strikes, it makes sense to head to a Belgian restaurant for satisfaction. Naturally, one of the first that comes to mind in London is the Belgo chain and, while it may not be the best there is, it is cheap and cheerful and always has space for a group.
The Kingsway branch is just around the corner from the Centraal location in Seven Dials. It's not as cool...more
