Came here with friends for dinner we all had pies. Excellent quality meat & pastry & side dishes. I’m actually quite picky with my meat too! Highly recommend the lamb and mushroom as the lamb was uber delicate !

Built in 1893 as a magnificent banking hall, the aptly named Counting House oozes 19th Century decadence. With gleaming chandeliers and high domed ceiling, it's a stunning place to stop by for a hand-raised pie and a pint of real ale in the heart of London.
