Business Lunch: Where to Go in North London

With such a wide selection of cuisine across North London, heading to the right place for a business lunch can require a little thought. 

Whether you’re aiming to impress a client to keep them loyal, meet up with fellow business associates, or take colleagues for lunch, we’ve done the hard work for you by choosing our favourites. 

With a prepaid business card, like Soldo, employees can now pay for their own business lunches, without having to worry about being reimbursed later! A business owner simply has to load each card up with a budget for business entertainment expenses and let their team do the rest. 

So, with that in mind, here’s our selection of the best business lunch spots in North London….

Fredericks, Islington

Situated in fashionable Camden Passage, the light and airy ambience of Fredericks makes it ideal for business lunches in London. There are many different dining areas and a wide-ranging menu to choose from, so there’s sure to be something for everyone. The restaurant doubles as a gallery for paintings and photography meaning the restaurant walls are as colourful as the food on your plate. 

Odette’s, Primrose Hill

Established in 1978, and one of the Capital’s original dining rooms, Odette’s has earned its reputation as an iconic neighbourhood restaurant. With indoor and outdoor dining, it offers a perfect al-fresco opportunity for summer lunches in the City. If your business lunch has to fit into a tight schedule, the Seasonal Lunch Menu also offers three courses served to your table within 45 minutes.

Odette’s prides itself on using fresh, seasonal ingredients meaning its menu changes frequently. This ensures that you will have a diverse set of choices, should this become your favourite ‘go-to’ lunch spot.

Coal Office, King’s Cross

If you’re looking to impress, a restaurant which describes itself as ‘a food and design playground’ promises a new culinary experience for diners. Situated near vibrant Granary Square, Coal Office spans two floors and offers spectacular views from its outdoor terrace. Specialising in Middle Eastern food, this restaurant is perfect for that all-important business meeting.

Delicatessen, Hampstead

Another Middle Eastern restaurant, serving dishes designed for sharing, Delicatessen is ideal for those seeking a more informal lunch setting. Sharing platters are a great option here for those not wanting to break their business bank account. There are also traditional meat and fish dishes that offer a modern twist on Middle Eastern cuisine.

The Orange Tree, Totteridge Village

If you’re looking for a quiet lunch setting away from the hustle and bustle of the City, the country setting of The Orange Tree should top your list of places to try. With all the charm of a country pub seamlessly blended with a stylish bar and restaurant, this gem offers an extensive lunchtime menu alongside an impressive drinks selection.

Just don’t forget to keep a record of your receipts, because logging your staff entertainment VAT or client entertainment VAT shouldn’t get in the way of a good lunch.

Tish, Belsize Park

To experience kosher cooking at its finest, Tish offers a unique dining experience of classic Jewish food served in a contemporary fashion. The modern bar, restaurant and terrace offer a multitude of places to enjoy the restaurant’s take on European cuisine. It even boasts an extensive breakfast menu for those not wanting to limit themselves to just business lunches!

So, there you have our favourite spots in North London for business lunches. If you’re a business owner, or an employee who is often entertaining clients, let the Soldo prepaid company cards take away the stress of paying.

It’s time to gain control over business entertainment expenses and focus on enjoying the good company and great food!
