Holborn House are currently running a lunch deal where you can get a selection of mains for £5. Pretty good if you're looking for a hot filling lunch where you can eat in.
In summer they open the front area up to let a breeze in which is really nice, but the summer we've had this year has been crapola so it got a bit chilly!
If anything, the waiter was slightly too attentive but as it got busier that subsided. I had the spaghetti bolognese which was actually really good with lots of flavour, but the way the seats are arranged means that the the tables are lower than the seats. Toooo messy when you're trying to eat spag bol. I ended up balancing the bowl on my lap and digging in with just a fork.
It's really more of a bar style place than a restaurant but for a fiver at lunch for some yummy food it's a good deal. My sister had the burger which she really liked and a friend of mine had the risotto which she said was quite standard.
I love Holborn House! I was there for a product launch recently and I mat have been swayed by the copious amounts of free champagne but either way it was a great night and I really enjoyed it. I'll definitely try it out again sometime.
