Joe Allen

OPENED August 21st, 2017

The American theatre brasserie reopens after relocating… just 25 metres away from the original site.

The restaurant has been popular with theatreland punters since it opened in 1977, and has become a real institution.

The Spot:

The restaurant has relocated after spending 40 years in its original site, but fans of the distinctive décor need not worry — all the photos and memorabilia from the original space have moved into the new one.

The Food:

It’s the same classic menu of American crowd pleasers, including steaks, salads, fish, and their signature range of specials like the ribs and Joe Allen hot dog.

There’s something for everyone here, from light nibbles to macaroni cheese and, of course, London’s worst-kept secret off-menu cheeseburger.

The Drinks:

You should order a cocktail to sip while you consider Joe Allen’s history – many of London’s famous restaurant folk have worked here, including Polpo’s Russell Norman and Jeremy King of Corbyn and King (The Ivy, The Wolseley, The Delaunay).

 Joe Allen Hot Dog

The Damage:

Starters generally are under £10, mains £15–£20 and desserts around £6.

In a Nutshell:

This may not be the buzzing theatre hangout it once was, but the history still seeps from the furniture and memorabilia inside. If you’ve never been, grab yourself a table and tick off an essential London restaurant experience.
