Dining Solo in London

I am travelling to London alone on business next week from Wednesday to Friday. Normally when I travel for pleasure I book far out, but this trip came up last minute. I need help with some dinner suggestions- essentially I would appreciate any feedback on the below restaurants I am considering. Please take into account I am a 20’s something female, dining alone. I live in NYC and dine/drink alone, as long as the atmosphere is comfortable I don’t mind. I am also perfectly comfortable eating at the bar of a restaurant so please let me know if that’s an option.
I have three lunches and two dinners and will be staying in Kensington, so please let me know if there’s anything I'm missing that you would recommend as a single diner, I’m fairly adventurous.
I’ve been to London before and had some amazing meals, but I was with friends and I’m looking to try some new places.
-Bocca di Lupo (I actually booked a 10PM table for Thursday for 2 as single wasn’t an option! Is this necessary or can I take chances and walk in at 8:30 and dine at the bar?)
-Quilon or Amaya? Something upscale and Indian
-J Sheeky
-St. John B&W

Additionally, I definitely want to try some pub food- I think could work. Harwood Arms is already booked of course, I was thinking anchor and hope, but any suggestions are appreciated.

Thanks in advance, I’ve searched all over chowhound UK and haven’t had much luck with the dining solo angle!
