The Belgo chain grows to six (plus a franchise) with this brand new spot on Old Compton Street, in the heart of Soho. Things follows the same format here, so expect a huge range of craft beer served alongside a variety of mussel-based dishes. It should prove popular.
And while the moules do brisk business (think mariniere, Thai green, kimchi or simple herb and garlic), the food menu branches out. Expect steaks, burgers, calamari, salads, sharing plates of chicken wings and 'dirty grazers', too. Rotisserie chicken dishes also feature, with a range of rubs and sauces.
There's a huge range of beers on offer. From pilsners, draught drops and trappist beers to white, dark, amber, golden and fruit beers there's not a lot that you won't find. A note of caution, though: some are pretty strong - the 12 percent Bush Scaldis has put many a drinker on their arse.
Belgium inspired cuisine and over 50 Belgian craft beers. Established in the 1990’s,
Londoners have been enjoying Belgo for over 25 years. Growing on the success of
the Camden and Covent Garden branches, Belgo can now also be found in Soho,
Holborn, Bromley and Nottingham. This casual dining concept draws its inspiration
from the beer halls in Brussels, with shared seating and craft beers on tap. Belgo is
a fun and fast-paced restaurant, with sociable seating, good time eating and beers
flowing. Perfect for any occasion and family friendly, it is a truly original experience.

Always love having lunch in Soho, my first visit to Belgo's latest restaurant on Old Compton Street, and controversially I stepped away from the mussels, and had 1/2 lobster, what I realised afterwards is that I wanted the whole lobster, very tasty, and their beer - Satan Blond - recommended!!
Nipped in for a lunchtime bite. Well designed, cool feeling restaurant with friendly service.
I went for the half roast chicken with the spicy sauce and chips. It was served very quickly, the chicken fell off the bone, sauce had a little kick but not over-powering and the chips/fries were crisp and dry, did not taste fatty or oily.
Very impressed and will defo head back at some point to eat again.
Belgos, what a place!!! The atmosphere, venue style, staff, food everything wrapped up in one delicious mouthful.
If you are looking for Office/Christmas party I would strongly recommend this, with their knowledge to guide you through the Craft Beer menu (Mango Beer, you have to try this) to accompany the food (which it’s really hard to choose from, everything on the table was just amazing) you can also enjoy your visit downstairs in the caves, so much history restored which just added more value to the venue. Great place and can’t wait to go back!!!!
If you got to Belgos Soho you must treat yourself to Lobster and Steak ! It was amazing to say the least. I went for a mango beer which was weirdly good and house coleslaw was so lovely ! I loved the venue and next time will try and get downstairs.
