Just round the corner from Tottenham Court Road tube, this is an average pub with a good atmosphere. It is very popular and can get quite busy. The food is delicious - it's a little pricy (£7.50 for a baguette and chips) but it well made and tasty. Good for stopping in a lunchtimes for a quick meal.
Huge square in bloomsbury, recently remodelled, that has great areas for picnicking, very close to the centre. Good for a break from the british museum if you can't be bothered to walk back to russell square.
Since we were in the area and needed to grab some lunch,we popped into this deli, which had a little bit of seating in the front. We ordered two paninis - a chicken escalope and cheese, and a tuna and cheese - they were basically baguettes that were pressed in a panini machine. The crispy toasted exterior encased a tasty filling - great for a quick lunch and so much better than prepackaged sandwiches. I'd recommend this place if you're close by and need something warm and fast.
Good outdoor area. Not the biggest green space but good for picnics and lunchtime walks. Gets busy in the summer as near commuter central. About a 3 minute walk from Russell Square. Close to cafe and shops. Also has an underground carpark.
