The Westminster Social Guide: What’s Opening When?

Given it’s all anyone’s interested in, Guido brings you the seminal guide to what pubs and popular restaurants are re-opening when, from Westminster and Pimlico, to Victoria and Charing Cross. Firstly Guido is sad to report the demise of two well-known SW1 restaurants: Quirinale on Great Peter Street, and Roux at Parliament Square. They will be missed.

On to the happier news, plenty of outlets are re-opening on Monday. Bookings-only places are denoted with a 📅:

*Their website says they’re re-opening on the 17th, the owner tells Guido “there is a possibility that we’ll be opening on the 17th May”.

Guido confesses he fell short on one count: he could not get in contact with Players in Charing Cross. For the moment, presume they’re a 21st June opening.
