Newly single A-lister Tom Cruise is certainly loving life in London.

He has been a regular fixture in the capital while filming a new blockbuster, and he was spotted again on Saturday night living it up up in the West End.

The 50-year-old actor beamed with happiness after he dined at London's The Ivy restaurant with a mystery female companion.

The Top Gun star was spotted leaving the plush restaurant wearing his trademark aviators, black trousers and a dark jumper.

His dining companion was not far behind, wearing a red dress and white jacket.

The
actor is currently in London filming sci-fiction thriller All You Need
Is Kill, which stars Cruise as a soldier who dies in during battle against
aliens.

However, he finds that he can relive his last day over and over again, and becomes more skilled as time goes on.

Directed by The Bourne Identity's Doug Liman, the film also stars Emily Blunt and Titanic's Bill Paxton as the tough leader of Cruise's platoon.

Since
he began filming in London last month, Cruise has managed to find the city's nightspots with ease, and
he was seen leaving Annabel's private members' restaurant
and nightclub last week in the early morning.

Filming the movie in London has seen
criticism aimed Cruise's way after it was reported it's been over 50
days since he was publicly spotted with his six-year-old daughter Suri.

However, Cruise's lawyer Bert Fields has
hit out at the suggestions Cruise isn't a devoted father, insisting the
Hollywood icon speaks to his daughter 'every day'.

He added: 'Tom has been in England shooting a film. He calls Suri every day, sometimes twice a day.

'He
loves Suri and is a constant presence in her life. As in the past, when
he's shooting in a foreign country, he has to rely on daily phone calls.'

Suri lives with her mother Katie Holmes after Cruise and the former Dawson's Creek divorced earlier this year.

He was last seen with his daughter during a daddy day out at Disney World in Orlando, Florida on August 16.

Cruise is believed to be considering a permanent base in New York so he can spend more time with his daughter.
