Foundation BarIn the heart of London's busy West End, The Langley is a Covent Garden institution serving up excellent cocktails and a crowd-pleasing menu. As well as the industrial and futuristic main dining room, the venue has a number of different bars, each with their own atmosphere and identity. The restaurant is located just off the dancefloor so diners can settle in for cosy catch-ups and post-work snacks before busting a move to The Langley's great playlist. On the menu, there are international dishes like char-grilled steak with chunky chips; sizzling fajitas; crisp skinned sea bass; and classic surf and turf. For dessert, try their naughty but nice profiteroles or one of their delicious cocktails. We recommend the zingy Lynchburg Lemonade!
