Kettner’s

Perched on the corner of Romilly Street and Greek Street, right in the heart of Soho lies Kettner’s. Adding to the salubrious history of Soho, Kettner’s comes equipped with its own tales of glitz and glamour.

Restaurant Reckoning: The Mug House

When I was a wee bairn I practically wore out my VHS copy of Oliver! ┬áThere was pretty much nothing I didn’t love about that film, batey Mr Bumble bellowing “ONE BOYYYYYYYYYYYY BOYYYYY FOR SAAAAAAAALE”, the Artful Dodger’s opening gambit, “Ain’tcha never seen a toff?” (which I can verify from experience, does not work well as a chat-up line) and the way Bill Sykes hollers “BULLSEYE.
