Overlooking Trafalgar Square from the National Gallery, this sleek all-day operation never struggles to fill its tables, but there's a lot more to the cooking than a simple pit-stop when you're checking out the art. Unfussy modern dishes draw on well-sourced seasonal materials, starting with chargrilled squid with chilli and lime, while a main course of whole lemon sole teamed with buttery brown shrimps and capers is deftly handled; meatier appetites might home in on beer-fed rib-eye steak with braised short rib and roasted bone marrow. It all ends with a comforting classic, apricot bread and butter pudding slathered with marmalade.
