Give us a steer! Type of food, atmosphere, budget? There's everything imaginable available after all smile

Righto. Not to pricey, relaxed, not overly dressy or poncy. A nice pub or bar would be great and pub food absolutely fine but not a weatherspoons grin

I would go to car any street as lots of pubs and bars and that funny little square behind it is nice-look on a map. Just next to Oxford Circus.

Just read op properly, Westminster is not great but I do like the bar at royal festival hall then south bank for food?
Piccadilly Circus is near enough to walk into soho. Any nicholdons pub is usually busy and reasonable pub food.

Bit of a stroll from Picadilly Circus but I'd head for Soho and then you can go to several places. If you want a sit down meal if go somewhere like Dean St Townhouse (American style brasserie, grills, fish etc). Not cheap however. Or Balans (burgers, steak, Thai curry) has a great atmosphere (gorgeous gay staff) and is reasonably priced.

If you like seafood then Randall and Aubin is great, you can get a seafood platter or lobster and chips and bubbles and sit on stools at high counters, there's loud music , a big disco ball and (again) lovely gay staff that mean the atmosphere is party like.

Busaba Eathai is fantastic if you fancy Thai style.

Pix is great fun, fab atmosphere and cheap (tapas served from the bar, with a big or small skewer to denote price).

I'd follow up your meal with coffee/dessert at Bar Italia and there are loads of bars you could choose from. This will feel like a proper London night out IMO smile
