I held a networking event for 20 people at the Fine Line. Iliya and his team were very friendly with us and made sure we had a pleasant stay at the pub. The finger food buffet was ideal for sharing and very generous serving. It...was in the month of December which is very busy time but we still had plenty of room for a large group. Would recommend for an informal event.More

Went to the pub for some friends. Bar staff couldn't have be more pleasant however the Manager was arrogant and rude. The attitude of the Manager has put me off going to one of my favorite drink spots.

Hi, I went here with work for 20 people and had pre ordered food to help speed things up. On the day we were told there were only 2 Out of 7 steaks free. And I believe there was an issue with the lamb too....Food took a while to arrive and the chicken was burnt, fish was over battered, and the pad Thai was untouched by my colleagues. The starters were pretty small too. When we formally complained, there was acknowledgement and apologies but no offer of any compensation (we offered to continue paying fully for the drinks but felt good was unfair). A chaser email was sent and we’ve yet for receive a response.More

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...to your company.More

Came here after visiting Madison's rooftop bar (see other review) and, wow, what a difference . Granted you don't get the views but The Fine Line is in a quiet courtyard close to Bow Bell's church. There was a jazz band playing in the square...whilst we visited and plenty of seating to use. Good service at the bar and a fine range of drinks too. Nice place to chat with friends and family and wind down!More

pooped in on a Monday night which I find in London is the best night along with Tuesday to get dinner in a pub, have seen this place on Thursday's and Friday's and the place is jammed. Great food, had a burger which was really...good. Pleasant wait staff, asked the barkeep for a suggestion on a beer, he went and got another barkeep who he said knew the beers better,\. Good spacing between the tablesMore

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,...pity they don't charge prices to reflect the image..More

Hi Tim , Thank you for your review. If it’s not too cheeky to correct you - we are not Nicholson’s pub , we are part of the Fuller’s . Regarding prices , agreed that we could be a bit on a pricier side ,...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...its location. The staff are pleasant and the service good. The food was good.More

Popped in here for a few drinks ahead of dinner with friends. Whilst all the other bars in the area were heaving, this was nicely tucked away and we were able to get a seat altogether. The service was lovely and they had a good...choice on the wine list.More
