It's the last big hurrah of the summer - three days for you to eat and drink your way round London. And - don't faint dead away now - it's actually supposed to be sunny as well! Here's what London's restaurants and bars have planned for the August bank holiday weekend.


All weekend


Over in Knightsbridge Harry's Dolce Vita is celebrating Ferragosto through until Bank Holiday Monday with beach hut installation, magnum bottles of rose on the terrace and traditional summer Italian dishes to share with friends and family.

Go back in time at a Café Rouge, which for its 30th birthday is rolling prices back to Dine Like it’s 1989. The birthday menu runs from Friday to Sunday and includes STeak frites for £7.95. And if you're celebrating your birthday over the bank holiday weekend too you'll get a free bottle of fizz. 

Brixton Village is putting on music, food and entertainment all weekend and on the Bank Holiday Monday there'll be face painting, soft play and a bouncy castle (for the kids, mind). 

If you're heading down to carnival but are swerving the meat - Kensal Rises's Comptoir V is offering a plant-based alternative to the usual jerk chicken and Red Stripe, with a special Caribbean vegan menu including Jackfruit Nuggets,Jerk Cauliflower Wings and Spiced Island Sweet Potato and Lentil Curry.

The E17 Beer Festival takes place at (and is raising funds for) the Walthamstow Pumphouse Museum. Local suppliers will include Longflint, Redemption, One Mile End, Hale Brewing - and incredible cheese toasties from Wine 'n' Rind. 

The Lounge Bar at Mayfair's Novikov is holding a summer carnival party with dancers, DJs and drummers - and lots of cocktails.

Head to The Prince in West London where their Bottomless Bank Holiday Brunch introduces new brunch specials from The Prince's brand new restaurant Wildcard, plus unlimited drinks for three hours and live music throughout the day.
