The original basement restaurant – Covent Garden was the birth site of Flesh & Buns and it was in this underground bunker that we set the nights alight. Hidden away below the streets of Seven Dials, this restaurant is the perfect place to escape to for great food, cocktails and desserts.
On the menu you’ll find Flesh such as our Japanese Fried Chicken, Salmon Teriyaki and the famous Miso Aubergine, ready to be packed into steaming bao buns.
Crispy Piglet Belly
Tomato salsa, BBQ, carrot pickle, avocado shiso, nori, steamed rice
It’s our signature for a reason. Made with premium vodka, peach, cranberry and topped with prosecco and served with a little bit of theatre.
Korean Fried Wings
Hold the chopsticks, get stuck in and make a mess. Our original cult crave dish served crispy with a healthy dose of sweet and spicy Korean sauce.

Frequently asked questions
Can we come in just for drinks?
For sure. We have a bar area that can accommodate walk-ins and guests just for drinks. Our bar isn’t massive, and it does serve as a dining counter as well, so there often isn’t a lot of space to hang out and drink on the bar counter. But you’re certainly welcome to come by and grab a beverage, particularly before your table meal.
Can we have a quiet table?
At Flesh & Buns, we like to play old-school rock music, so if you’re after a quiet night out, you may find that we’re not quite the place for you. If it’s just a slightly more intimate space you’d like, give us a call on 020 3019 3492 and we’ll try and work something out.
Can we reserve a booth?
For a group of 6 – 8 this is possible. Please call us on 020 3019 3492 or email us on firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange.
We don't have a booking. Do you take walk-ins?
Absolutely – we always keep some tables un-booked to be able to accommodate walk-ins. There may be a wait involved, but we’ll always try to get you seated.
What's your maximum party size?
On our 3 elevated sharing tables, we can accommodate larger groups. Give us a call on 020 3019 3492 or email us on email@example.com to discuss.
Are you able to cater to coeliacs?
To an extent. We have a range of wheat-free dishes on the menu and can make adjustments to some of our dishes to make them suitable. But we do use soy sauce rather liberally, which contains wheat in small quantities – so the suitable menu options depend on the degree of gluten intolerance. Give us a call, drop us a line or ask our team when you come in. They’ll be able to recommend something suitable.
Please note: our buns are not gluten-free, but our flesh can be enjoyed wrapped in the mix of leaves we serve alongside it.
Do we all have to have the brunch menu?
Yes – we need the whole table to choose from the same menu, so as to keep things manageable for our kitchen team.
Do you do take away?
Unfortunately not: our lease prevents us from offering any food or drinks to carry away, including doggy bags.
I have a food intolerance or special dietary requirement I can't find the answer to here. What do I do?
Give us a call on 020 3019 3492, drop us a line at firstname.lastname@example.org or ask our team when you come in. They’ll almost always be able to recommend something suitable.
I'm a vegetarian/vegan. Is there something on the menu I can eat?
There are quite a few vegetarian options on the menu, some of which may be adjusted to be suitable for vegans. We’re always working on adjusting and enhancing our menu, so dishes may change over time. Give us a call on 020 3019 3492, drop us a line at email@example.com or ask our team when you come in. They’ll be able to recommend something suitable.
Is your meat halal?
Yes, all of our chicken is, when it is not deep-fried.
When are last orders/when does the kitchen close?
As per the timings on our website – when the doors close, last orders are taken, and the kitchen closes.
Do you have a baby changing facility?
Unfortunately, we do not have baby changing facilities.
Do you have high chairs?
Yes, we do. When booking please make us aware so we can ensure we have enough available for all bookings.
Do you have wheelchair access?
Unfortunately not. We are located in a basement with only a staircase leading to the dining room.
How do credit or debit card tips get distributed?
All tips are distributed amongst our waiting, bar and kitchen staff, following any tax related deductions.
