Typically, a traditional afternoon tea consists of a selection of finger sandwiches, freshly baked scones served with clotted cream and jams as well as some cakes and pastries to accompany the tea or coffee you’ve selected.
We found a lobster shack that can rival Burger and Lobster in London, and it is Big Easy.
Conveniently located in Covent Garden, this hippie restaurant is truly a hidden gem. Despite its proximity to the heart of Covent Garden where The Apple Market is, Big Easy is actually pretty unassuming from its exterior.
And that’s why we’re here with this PSA which you should appreciate: Big Easy is truly the other Burger & Lobster you wish you knew about earlier.
