This seems to be a bit of a gem in that the location (just near the Tower of London and directly adjacent to Allhallows church) is great, but it doesn't seem to be overrun with tourists. The menu is quite basic, butall the food was well prepared and quickly served. ALl the staff were very friendly and knowledgable. Pricing is... More

One of our favorite meals while in London. Great location and great stop when visiting the Tower of London. We stopped in for lunch and I had the Bangers & Mash and my husband had the Pie of the Day which was Shepard's Pie. Both were delicious!

Our breakfast was very tasty--we had the traditional English breakfast and scrambled eggs with bacon (please do not expect American bacon in England). They didn't not have a kids menu but worked to create a small meal a kid would enjoy. The food arrived quickly and the waitstaff was pleasant and accommodating.

I had the special: Brie and carmalised onions I pocket...with chips and salad. Husband had the fish and chips...thought it was some of the better fish and chips he's had. I LOVED mine!!!! So good....after the tower of London's 17 stories of walking....it was a nice place to sit down and enjoy a Diet Coke and lunch.

We were a group of ladies on a day trip to London for our annual cousins day. We needed somewhere to meet. The Kitchen at the Tower was an ideal place as we were coming from both the North and the South of the country. I had already emailed The Kitchen and they reserved us a large table together. Some...

As a wheelchair user with an assistance dog, places like this are absolute gems! Owner went way beyond that of far larger concerns to ensure our visit was a good one. Menu was extremely good value, and food delicious, tea in a proper mug very nice touch.

All-day full English breakfast, discounts for early birds including coffee (between 10-11am) with home-made beans, they were warm when we got them and tasted delicious. Spacious enterior with comfy armchairs and tables, nice decoration, but most importantly a beautiful garden next to the church, very silent and pittoresque with the flowers and bright colored chairs. We loved our time there,... More

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.
