Whether you’re wanting a weekend treat, celebrating something special, or simply want an easier option for dinner – Quingo Scooters know how important it is to find somewhere to eat that is completely accessible where you can feel entirely at ease.
You may be a local resident to the capital city, or maybe you’re just visiting for a short break. It can sometimes feel slightly daunting to choose just one restaurant out of the pack without knowing how accessible it will be for your mobility scooter. In this post we give our recommendations for some of the most accessible restaurants in London, to make that choice a little easier.
Gourmet Burger Kitchen – 160 Portobello Road, Notting Hill
If you fancy a good old American style burger, this is the place for you! The extensive range of burgers and other dishes are freshly prepared and made to order, portions are generous and catering for vegetarians is also provided. There is level access to the restaurant from the street, a lowered payment counter and fully accessible toilets. Gourmet Burger Kitchen is a chain of restaurants up and down the country, so you can find an alternative restaurant near you.
Criterion Restaurant – 224 Picadilly, Mayfair
The Criterion is one of London’s oldest restaurants, having opened in 1874. It is a Neo-Byzantine-style restaurant serving Modern European dishes, and is open for both lunch and dinner. Inside the Criterion you’ll find the iconic long bar, where Sir Arthur Conan Doyle staged the first meeting between Sherlock Holmes and Dr Watson. On top of amazing food, this restaurant is full of history and spectacular architecture! There is accessible entry to Criterion, and there are fully accessible toilets.
Mela – 152-156 Shaftesbury Avenue, Covent Garden
If you’re someone who loves Indian food, but also likes trying new things, then this is a great option for you. Rather than focusing on a specific region, Mela’s menu features dishes from all over India. This means you’ll find some unusual treats like lobster pepper fry curry and potatoes stuffed with cashew nuts. Mela also keep the fat and oil content in their dishes to a minimum, which is an added bonus. There is both assisted and non-assisted mobility scooter access available, and the toilets are fully accessible.
Petrus – 1-3 Kinnerton Street, Knightsbridge
For something a little bit more extravagant, or for a special celebration, try Michelin star restaurant Petrus. This modern French dining restaurant is one of Gordon Ramsay’s, boasting theatrical dishes and a very extensive wine list. The wine even features as the centrepiece of the restaurant, a glass encased wine room. This restaurant is very accessible for mobility scooters – there is level access to the restaurant and there are fully accessible toilets.
