Pizza Pilgrims & Once

Having visited the Soho Pizza Pilgrims for Prosecco and Pizza on various occasions, I decided to recommend this as a pre theater meal during a recent double date.

So firstly, like with many Soho establishments you cannot book, which can cause issues for larger groups or Friday nights, so I would recommend getting here as early as possible. The restaurant is not very big, therefore you may leave disappointed.

The restaurant serves up no fuss thick dough Italian Pizza's with a small variety of toppings. They are doughy, chewy, fluffy, crispy, delicious meals! Everyday there is a different "guest pizza" so definitely go ahead and ask about this.

The buffalo burrata is a must order, you won't regret it and from experience I have tried and loved all of the Salami, Margarita with buffalo mozaerlla and the Salsiccia E Friarielli (broccoli on a pizza is never a mistake!)

A pizza restaurant serving Prosecco on tap for a reasonable price is always going to get a thumbs up from me.

Then it was onto Once the Musical around the corner featuring lots of Irish music but most importantly lovely Irish accents! The stage is set out as a bar and is a very simple set. Before the show and during the interval guests from the audience are invited onto the stage to share a beverage from the bar with the cast, I thought this was a unique little idea.

The theater is small and intimate providing the ideal setting for this fantastic show. I don't want to give too much away but the music is catchy and well presented and is a nice break from the more obvious musicals one could choose from in London.
