Belgo Holborn is a contemporary, airy restaurant and bar housed in an old Lloyd’s bank. Memories of the buildings former use can be seen in the basement where we safe guard our ‘liquid gold’ (beer) in the banks former safe, now converted into a beer cellar. The 130 cover restaurant has shared bench seating in the traditional beer hall style and is dominated by a fun abbey pane glass window. The generous bar or bierdrome is the perfect spot for an after work tipple or relaxed get together. Natural light pours through the full length windows looking over bustling Holborn and our outside seating area. The whole venue is a very versatile space and is available for exclusive hire, or can be hired semi exclusively for dinner or drinks parties.

                    Food very good, our server was attentive and polite, we would definitely recommend this restaurant. We booked our meal for 5-30pm so at that time fairly quite.

                    Unprofessional, rude staff, shady management and poor atmosphere. Showed zero concern about customers' issues. I will not attempt again! This place ruins the reputation of their entire chain.

                    Great location , 2 minutes walk from Holborn Station. Very friendly reception and good service. The ambiance suits the younger crowd. Food quality ok; our mussels were a tad on the small side.

                    A busy lunchtime made it quite slow to get served but once you do the food is great. The chicken burger was very nice and the choice of beers were also extensive. I'd recommend but maybe not for lunch if you are in a hurry.

                    We took our work mates to an early dinner at Belgo’s Holborn. The fruit beers were good and so was the Waterzooi! One of my colleagues had Moules with Chorizo and would’ve like a little more chorizo than the one tiny piece she found in it. But it was delicious nevertheless. We shared a dessert of dark chocolate mousse and it was heavenly! Very Belgian :) Service was quick and friendly.

                    The restaurant at Kingsway London by Holborn where I booked a table was out of chicken which we were told by the waitress in an off the shoulder manner. So we ended up walking out and having to find an other restaurant. Disappointing and poor service.

                    I was looking forward to enjoying their rotisserie chicken. My chicken was extremely dry. One of the servers said they put it in the oven after the rotisserie. On the other hand, my build-your-own crepe dessert was delicious.

                    Brighter than the Covent Garden Belgo, but the beer my husband wanted wasn't available (it was the first listed on the menu, not an obscure one) and the after lunch coffee couldn't happen, because the coffee machine wasn't working. Not great really, is it? The food was fine, although we had to specifically request the express lunch menu (it isn't automatically offered). Wouldn't be in a massive rush back.

                    Decent food, nice cocktails, pleasant and friendly table service, overall clean and spacious. The ambiental music a bit too "disco" for an eatery, more soothing rhythms would be suitable. Also, some tables’ surface is very worn out and with a shoddy look, in desperate need of repair/ repainting. But, all in all, a good place to have a nice lunch. Prices - relatively reasonable for Central London.

                    This was my first visit to a 'Belgo restaurant'. Upon arrival, they were unable to find my booking (I showed them the confirmation on my phone), but they found me somewhere to sit. It wasn't very busy, but the service was a bit slow. However, the food was good (I had a vegetarian burger) and I wouldn't rule out a future visit.

                    Our food didn’t arrive for over an hour after we ordered, but because of this the staff gave us a free portion of fries and didn’t charge us for any of our food. Overall the place had a lovely atmosphere, lovely staff, and lovely food.

                    We booked this restaurant following a link to the Theatre we were attending that evening. Add to this we got sucked in to the fact it was supposedly a Belgian Restuarant specialising in moules. The dishes served up to both of us were totally tasteless and a big disappointment. We won't be returning.

                    Very good food (we got the moules) for what is a chain restaurant.

                    Excellent service. Decent burger. Would recommend it.

                    Food was really not great. Mussels were in a very watery and bland sauce. Not expected. Restaurant was also incredibly loud so not good if you want to have a conversation over dinner but fun as a place to drink on Friday

                    Food and service fine but few vegetarian options. We have been to Belgo quite often and found this occasion slightly disappointing. Hard to specify why. Our server was very pleasant and the food was good.

                    We went to Belgo's Holborn for lunch just after Easter which was the reason for some items not being on the menu as deliveries had not arrived. That did mean there were no mussels (!) on the menu and also a shortage of vegetarian options. The latter was handled very well with a substitute offered for the lunchtime menu option that was unavailable being offered at the Express Menu price. That however, was probably the best I could say for our meal as all three of us felt underwhelmed by our dishes which were the meatball burger, rotisserie chicken and veggie burger, all of which were ok, but lacked much notable flavour. We may return if mussels are back on the menu, although none of us have eaten those at Belgo's for years and if they are of a similar calibre as the offerings we tasted, there will be no reason to try this restaurant again given the surfeit of nearby alternatives.

                    It is a lovely place with fantastic choice of beers, good service and funny atmosphere. It is getting a bit too noisy as anywhere else, so this is a good place to have fun with friends. Food is nice and service is excellent.

                    Nice food and good value for money. The service was excellent - busy time, table of 10, a Saturday just before Christmas but staff were friendly and attentive and it made for a very nice family get-together.

                    Good ambiance, a little bit cramped but tolerable. Reasonably priced, in particular the Feast or Express lunch if either is on offer at £7.50 and £8.95 respectively. Good quality food. Robust flavours. Friendly and efficient service.
