Quo Vadis

Quo Vadis | Iconic Soho Restaurant & Bar

Quo vadis is a question in Latin, and literally means ‘where are you going?’

The answer to which is also Quo Vadis.

Soho’s grande dame has been entertaining diners for the best part of a century, but a recent facelift has given the place a new lease of life. The first floor now features QV’s first dedicated restaurant for members – and members only – who also have exclusive access to the all-new second floor library bar. Fancy.

They also have some lush private dining rooms, which anyone can book.

Joe public however, can still stroll merrily into the ground floor restaurant, with its crisp tablecloths, stained glass windows and sprightly flower arrangements. Amid the hubbub and merriment of some of Soho’s most debaucherous characters, you can dine on Jeremy Lee‘s seasonally-led menu, occasionally featuring the likes of wild rabbit and herb kickshaws, crab soup with rouille and marzipan-stuffed prunes dipped in organic Congolese chocolate. Which, of course, sit alongside old favourites like the eel sandwich and Grouse & Co; a hearty offering of grouse with game chips and sherry croutons.

Quo Vadis

To finish it off? There are desserts such as pink grapefruit & Campari sorbet; steamed ginger & marmalade puddings; and hazelnut cake with custard, ice cream, and cream.

To wash it all down, they’ll shake you any number of classic cocktails, including their famed Martini, an Old Fashioned, a Brandy Alexander, or a simple glass of Poire Williams – a brandy-like spirit with an entire pear floating in the bottle.

Which is the answer to a great many questions.


NOTE: Quo Vadis will be closed from 2nd January – 7th February ’23 for renovations. You can find out more, and make a booking for other dates by simply clicking HERE
