The Night Tube is finally on the way, kicking off on 19 August 2016 and bringing with it even more of a chance to stay in town for a late night dinner. With that in mind, we've rounded up some of the best places in London to enjoy a proper after hours dinner (which we've decided - for now - covers places still serving at least a partial kitchen menu after 11pm).
