The Queen’s Head is a free house right in the heart of London. A hideout two steps away from the throng of Piccadilly Circus, this late Victorian pub has a cosy upstairs dining area that prides itself on using fresh and seasonal produce, bringing out the very best in their homemade traditional menu. Only using fish from sustainable sources, all of the Queen’s Head’s seafood is traceable, so they know exactly where your fish has come from. Situated next door to the Piccadilly Theatre, there is a delicious two course pre-theatre dinner menu featuring classic English cuisine, and their homemade pies are a popular choice.

El Camion (0.1 miles)
Situated in the backstreets of Soho and well within walking distance of the Piccadilly Theatre, El Camion is a cool and colourful restaurant that serves creative Mexican street food, with some mouth-watering and affordable options that make it great for pre-theatre dining. El Camion has all the Mexican favourites on its menu, including nachos, enchiladas, burritos and quesadillas, as well as a few options that may be more experimental for Western palates – such as zinging ceviche and Mexican pork scratchings. El Camion is full of friendly, hip staff that wind their way between the tables, and the wall full of hot sauce bottles is a nice touch that reinforces its dedication to full-on Mexican flavour! You cannot book tables so if you have to make it to the show for a particular time it is worth turning up well in advance given the popularity of El Camion; however, the bar serves strong cocktails, beers and an awe-inspiring range of tequilas to help make the time pass!
Opening times: Monday to Saturday: 12pm-3am, Sunday: 12pm-11pm

Decor is the epitome of shabby chic, the staff are effortlessly cool and the food is tasty and creative, making Spuntino a good option for those looking for some style with their pre-theatre meal.
