London restaurants launching tube strike discount menus


While we can’t do anything about the impending apocalyptic swirl of chaos set to bring the capital to another standstill from Tuesday, we can reveal a few high-end London restaurants that are responding in brilliant fashion. Namely, by offering Londoners some huge deals.

Thanks in large to the bods at Sauce Communications, a select number of popular foodie hotspots will be slashing their menus by up to half price, allowing wary city folk a place to seek shelter and ride out the commuter storm while also saving a fortune on top notch servings.

Take this with a pinch of salt if you must - just ensure it's generously shaken over some chips and vegetables.

Here are the places you’ll be wanting to visit...

[Note: as of writing one union has announced they are stopping with the industrial action, thus putting these tasty discounts in real jeopardy]


Pop down to Soho’s hippest French bistro Blanchette and you’ll get 50 per cent off the à la carte menu on the evenings of Tuesday 25th and Thursday 27th August.


Gourmet fish and chip spot Bonnie Gull Seafood Shack is offering 2 for 1 on beer, wine and snacks at their Outdoor Kitchen between 5pm and 8pm on Wednesday 26 August and Thursday 27 August. 


Japanese fan? Head to South Kensington’s Yashin Ocean House and quote ‘Sauce’ to get 20 per cent off all grub.


Tapas kings Salt Yard restaurants are offering a whopping 50 per cent of all food across all of their sites Dehesa, Opera Tavern and Ember Yard.


Spanish restaurant Camino is also offering half price off all food at its venues including King’s Cross, the new Bankside, Monument and Blackfriars.


And finally, adding an extra day’s allowance for commuter grumbles, Mango Tree Belgravia is offering 50 per cent off all food between Tuesday 25th and Friday 28th August. Which is only available by telephone booking and quoting ‘tube strike offer’ while booking, and scoffing a minimum of two courses per person. Judging by the menu, that won’t be too hard.
