Little Bay Restaurant is London's hidden treasure. With four London restaurants (Kilburn, Farringdon, Croydon and Battersea), most can easily find one that's not too far away, but convenience is not the only reason you should go. It's enchantingly quirky, has a fantastic atmosphere and is such good value for money - I'm not quite sure how they manage it.
The menu in any of the four London locations is more than reasonably priced. They vary very slightly, but to give you an idea, I'll show you the prices at my nearest Little Bay, in Croydon. ALL starters and desserts are £2.75 until 7pm and £3.45 after 7pm, and ALL main courses are £6.25 until 7pm and £7.55 afterwards. No your eyes aren't deceiving you, it really is that cheap. And don't worry, the quality of the food isn't compromised at all, and can even be enjoyed whilst listening to some live music.
You can choose to sit in the main part of the restaurant, or book a quaint booth but wherever you choose to sit you will be able to see that the restaurant is filled with an abundance of character and charm.
Little Bay somehow manages to be warm and intimate, yet also theatrical and somewhat grandiose. It will fast become a favourite to anyone who visits a branch as there is nothing not to like. The service is friendly, the setting is unique, the food is delicious and the prices couldn't be any lower. Well actually, I tell a lie - the Farringdon branch is currently offering 50% off their a-la-carte food bill.
