Flying Horse is definitely my favourite cashless coffee shop in London. No coins, and no compromise on flavour.

It never fails to deliver on great coffee and equally excellent eats. There’s a very cheapo friendly salad lunch, with the medium size only costing £4.75, though if you need something more chunky the dahl doesn’t dissapoint.

The White City location nestled in the modern revamp of the Television Centre complex is light, airy and laptop friendly. So media moguls in the making might like to stop by for a coffee and an afternoon of freelancing from a location of historic media interest (The Television Centre was BBC HQ up till about 2013).

Getting to Flying Horse

By tube, Wood Lane station is just a few minutes walk away on the Hammersmith and Circle lines. It’s about the same distance from the Central Line’s White City station. If you’re looking for somewhere to decompress after a hectic visit to Westfield, Flying Horse is just a five-minute stroll down Wood Lane.
