About the Venue:
Set your bearing strait for Sobranie and tuck into authentic Russian fare. This is one of those little gems of a restaurant, a closely guarded secret well known to those in the inner society circle of ex-pat Russians. It’s tucked away behind Victoria Station, but you can already smell the delicious, homemade food from the main street. As one would expect, the wine list is as impressive as the food. You’ll dine like a Tsar, without your wallet turning Bolshevik!
