Found this little gem by luck. Food perfect. Served quickly and the best we are in London over the 2 days. Even charged my phone for me. Special thanks to Patrycja. She was funny, attentive and talked to my mother and children equally. An asset...More

Closest pub to The Bow Bells in London, so it's a great location with not a lot of immediate competition, so it's, relatively quite expensive, fir a Nicholson's pub. A very open layout, very basic almost giving the impression of a 'spit and sawdust' pub,...More

It’s a nice location on the outskirts of the city. It is spacious and the tables are well spaced. There is also a large bar area if you just want a drink. The menu offers a reasonable choice of pub food and reasonable prices for...More

This pub offers the usual drink selection but the service was very slow. I arrived 5pm on a Friday night and they only had 2 people behind the bar. The real shame was that the music was so loud that you couldn't hear the person...More

Nice little bar tucked away within a Churchyard situated between St Pauls tube station, and Bank tube station. A client recommended this place to grab a quick lunch as it was fairly close to both offices. The lunch was rather nice, fairly quick service without...More

This bar is directly between St Pauls and Bank and therefore if you work in the area, it's an easy place to flow in to. The bar is set at the back of a large courtyard just off Cheapside and you are allowed to take...More

The Fine Line is a lively riverside bar on Fisherman's Walk - offering an contemporary take on pub food and drink and a seat right at the water's edge. It's just as stylish indoors, where a full refurbishment has made it one of the most desirable bars in the City of London.
