Belgo Soho (CLOSED)

Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.
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.
