Enjoyed a BBQ at this bar a few weeks ago and I have to say the food/drinks/service was amazing! Absolute bonus that we could enjoy our drinks outside on the terrace which had heaters for the chilly evening. Also loved the table service which meant we didn't have to move much from our seats and venture to the bar. Will... More

I have been drinking here for about 4 years now and have to say that the staff here remember us, they remember our drinks, they are attentive and friendly and can't do enough to try and please you. A few weeks ago, myself and 2 of my friends were sitting at one of the outside tables (not under an umbrella)... More

One member of staff behind the bar. Lots of other staff chatting. So many good bars around here that these guys need to up their game.

I went there with some colleagues for lunch, £12 for a burger!! No chips or sides included or available to order on the side. The brioche bun was cold and the burger was underwhelming especially for the price.

Many thanks for Hannah & her team for their help in hosting drinks for a large corporate party of guests. She has a great team working there who helped to make it a memorable evening - nothing was too much trouble & the guests were all well looked after. Thanks again !

Just wanted to say. Food really nice. Place small but neat & modern. I would also like to say & this is the main reason for my review was that the staff were really friendly & chatty & nothing was too much trouble. We had travelled a long way, so thank you for making us feel welcome.

It's become a City tradition for bankers and traders to meet at 'the railway carriage', just a minute away from Liverpool Street station. In winter, it's a cosy, intimate place to meet and chat. In summer, the place goes wild. This bar probably serves more Pimm's per square foot than anywhere else in the UK and bar staff that survive a summer here wear it as a badge of honour for the rest of their career.

Staying in City of London

Neighborhood Profile
City of London
From its ancient past as a Roman trading outpost to its 21st century status as the wealthiest square mile in the world, the financial district known simply as “The City” is one of London's most historic and fascinating neighborhoods. Here high rise office towers such as Norman Foster’s Gherkin mingle with Roman ruins and architectural marvels from virtually every era in between, including Christopher Wren's glorious St.Paul's Cathedral, and John Soane's dauntingly classicist Bank of England. This neighborhood is also home to some of the finest restaurants and plushest hotels in Europe, in addition to an assortment of watering holes, upscale shops, and Tube stations. During the week, the City is abuzz with white collar workers going about their business; the weekend sees this area turn into a quiet haven for sightseers.
