Famous for its high-end fashion and luxury designers, Selfridges on Oxford St also boasts an array of restaurants and bars offering Thai, European and English cuisines to name a few.

is one of those places, offering Eastern European light dishes and of course, champers. Bars situated in shopping centres often have a bad reputation, but with one as famous and most inviting as Selfridges, I figured this bar must have something to talk about. The sophistication of the bar sets a great impression at first, and I notice it's cleverly separated from the clothes being sold, so there's no intrusiveness about where you are whilst eating.

Looking at the menu, although a few more substantial mains are on offer, it's clear to me this place is more popular for those wanting nibbles, afternoon tea or simply a drink or two. As it's open until just 9pm too, you can soon establish why it's not necessarily meant for a drunken night out.

So, with all this sophistication, how much you may ponder? Well, actually, not too much. As it is a champagne bar, a glass of house champagne sets you back £13.50, with cheaper options such as wine costing as little as £5.50 a glass. Their selection of nibbles start from £4, including freshly baked bread, salted almonds and giant corn and broad beans. Mains are more pricey, averaging around £22. For me, the beautiful surroundings, fine nibbles and champers are what sold me, although with a 12.5% charge added too, you'd expect a friendly service and pleasant experience.

I'd certainly recommend this place to anyone wanting a quick interval from retail therapy. The food is light but very delicious and delicate. However, if the prices do put you off, a quick pastry and coffee would do just fine also!
