One of three Muriel's Kitchens in London - the others are in South Kensington and Leicester Square - this Soho branch brings the same emphasis on monthly-changing menus featuring locally sourced British ingredients. The bucolic interior features herb planters, flora, arbor seating and hanging potted plants.
It's open from breakfast, with early meals including blueberry pancakes with maple syrup, sausage sandwiches, eggs Florentine and a variety of other cooked breakfasts. Bloody marys and smoothies of an energising bent are served up too. Daytime and evening mains range from Clarence Court Scotch eggs and sharing platters to smoky fish pies, char-grilled salmon steaks and lasagne. Desserts include cakes, cupcakes, traditional puddings and gluten-free options.
Each of the wines from a list taking in Italy, Chile, Spain and France is available by the glass. Three sparkling wines and a couple of cocktails are available alongside bottles of ales and lager from St. Peter's Brewery and Wyld Wood organic cider. Soft options include milkshakes, freshly squeezed fruit juices and fizzy drops from Fentimans.

I ate at Muriel's last weekend having already walked round the area for 20 minutes searching for a restaurant to seat 6 of us for brunch. The wait time was only 20 minutes (compared to more than an hour at most nearby restaurants) so that was a plus! The interiors are homely but spacious. The cabinet had some beautiful freshly made sandwiches, croissants, cakes and pastries that would be handy for a quick bite. The menu was extensive and it was convenient that they serve breakfast until 3pm. The food was delicious, and my poached eggs were cooked perfectly. My only negative would be that the orange juice tasted watered down. Reasonably priced and attentive staff. I would go back again.
A selection of great comfort food and healthy looking options that I've never tried but sound very nice. It would get 5* if they had draft beer
I'd describe this place as the perfect spot for lunch or dinner with your mum or a gaggle of girlfriends. Actually feels like it's your mum/friend's kitchen - all rustic and cute, with homemade cakes and quiches, etc. They have a great wine menu as well, and the vibe in here is just relaxed and friendly. They have sit down tables as well as more comfortable, larger soft-furnished chairs at the back if you just fancy a cup of tea. Lovely stuff!
I met my Mum for a mid-week lunch at Muriel's kitchen and had a lovely meal. The staff were lovely and very attentive and when I explained that we were pushed for time they pushed our order forward. We both had the fillet steak and chips which arrived within 10 minutes and was very tasty (although quite a filling choice for lunch!) For £15 a head for a main and a drink I can't fault them and the Christmas music and cosy chalet-esque interior made for a good choice for a December meal too!
LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the Carrot cake here!! Pretty pricey pure slice but the slices are huge and you definitely know you're getting your full money's worth of delicious moist carrot cake!
A place with every kind of food you might fancy, (pizzas, burgers, sandwiches, cake, coffee, salads, antipasti etc.) all made to a decent standard. Reasonably priced, nicely furnished, nice staff and nice food. It isn't an amazing restaurant, but it satisfies all your basic needs to a great level when you just want something nice to eat. Would definitely recommend.
