Sat on Bunhill Road opposite London's famous Bunhill Cemetery. It's not a huge place but it's dark oak, bare brick walls and high ceilings can't help but take you back in time. Perhaps Jack the Ripper or Sweeny Todd once sat where I do now....More

We had a lovely Sunday lunch again. Chefs and staff where obliging with diet needs, within their capability. Food as always, home cooked with fresh veg. Plenty on the plate. Love the roast parsnips. Good value for money. Be hungry.
