Flack: (Saving) on expenses - No 20 restaurant, Sanctum Soho Hotel

Reviewer Louise Prior, director, Prior PR, founder member of The Travel PR Experts.

What is it good for?

Cosy booths and hearty comfort food in a rock 'n' roll sanctuary just off Regent Street. No. 20 is regularly frequented by a smattering of celebs, as well as the Soho media crowd looking for somewhere that offers value for money, an intimate environment to chill and chat, and 'real' food - there are no tiny portions on massive plates here.

Signature dish

The delectable Sanctum fish pie, with tiger prawns, smoked salmon and pollock. Team it with the rocket and parmesan salad to offset its creamy sauce.

Who's the boss?

The hotel is owned by music impresario Mark Fuller and Andy Taylor, Iron Maiden's manager.

Tips please

Make sure you get one of the curvy booths with a round table. It is perfect for two or four people, meaning that you get the best angle for people watching.

What's the damage?

Starters begin at £4.50, main courses are about £15, while desserts are all £5.70.

Sanctum Soho Hotel, 20 Warwick Street, Soho, London W1B 5NF. 020 7292 6100.
