Venue says: "We are the place for Sunday roasts. Slow-roast rump or prime rib, served all day from noon. Bring the family - the kids' roasts are on us!"
Covent Garden

The Covent Garden branch of the popular Sophie's Steakhouse in Chelsea.

The larger Covent Garden branch of Sophie's in Chelsea, with a nearly identical menu. It's right in the heart of the West End, so it proves popular with the theatre crowd. In fact, they get their own menu - served at lunchtime, from 5-7pm, and after 10pm. 

It's all about the beef here, more or less. It's all native breeds, and the rib for the Sunday roast comes from the 'family farm' in Oxfordshire. It's aged and butchered on the premises in a meat hanging room. Outside of the steaks there are burgers, ribs, salads, char-grilled tuna steaks and a lobster and avocado club. A nice touch: £1 plus VAT from every meal is donated to Great Ormond Street Hospital.

Drinks range from cocktails, shorts and 10oz martinis to Schiehallion, Birra Moretti and guest beers on tap and a wine list taking in big-hitting wine making regions from across the globe.

Sophie's Steakhouse & Bar says
Sophie's is guaranteed fun! Cracking steak, giant martinis and fabulous people.

We take our beef seriously, ageing and butchering native breed British beef in-house. Our big steaks are ideal for sharing and are grilled to perfection. Our menu also features seasonal classics with pies, grilled fish, big fresh salads and phenomenal homemade puddings. For the perfect start, kick off with one of our legendary 10oz martinis in our fabulous cocktail bar.

Open all day, we are ideal for a spontaneous lunch, drink after work, dinner with friends or a proper party.

Our express lunch menu offers terrific value. We have a semi-private dining room for up to 25 people and take party bookings for ten or more people.

We are a pre- or post-theatre hot spot with a fantastic theatre menu and a lively bar scene post-show. We are open until 1am.

Our Sunday roast is a family affair. We roast different cuts of beef - sirloin, rib or rump - that are aged in-house and served with a giant Yorkshire pudding, lashings of gravy and all the trimmings. It's available all day.

Relaxed with a lively atmosphere, Sophie's is perfect for any occasion.

This is a great value steakhouse. With a no booking policy and plenty of seats you can easily rock up and get a table. The quality on offer is great as is the wine list. It's a no frills, easy option. Recommended. 


A good pre-theatre option if you’re in central, be prepared to queue though - there’s no booking tables and there can be quite a wait.  The theatre menu is decent though and won't break the bank: 2 courses for £15.  It's in the name, the steak is a must.  And the complimentary salami is one of my favourite things about this place.  It’s the little things.

I love Sophie's Steakhouse and I'm not afraid to say it. She who combines good cocktails with good meat = a winner. It's right in the centre of town, so perfect for pre and post theatre. The cocktails are fabulous, the staff are friendly, and it's a big old venue, meaning you don't often have to wait too long to get seated. I often bring colleagues visiting from other countries here - it's got it all - good food, good atmosphere and it's actually pretty good value. Oh - and try the house salad with bacon and blue cheese dressing. It's probably calorific but it's off the charts good.

Has the winning combination of a great atmosphere AND somewhere you can get a table any time. Part of our pre-theatre ritual. Last time we went before and after the theatre, in fact! The bar is buzzy and the theatre menu in the restaurant is good value and delicious. Check it out.


I go here often and the food is always delicious and the service is super friendly. The complimentary salami which is offered as soon as you sit down always puts me in a great mood!
