Must have the Scotch egg and the burger. This place is spacious which means you could eat and relax (stretch your arms and stomach after meal) that is rare in London. Reservation recommended

I have been to Harrild and sons on a number of occasions and over the past few years. While it has always been pleasant, recently the service has been terrible and so I don't think I or my colleagues will visit again until it improves. A great shame.

Very easy to find, a 5 min walk from Blackfriars station, Harrild and Sons is a wonderful location to have a quiet and delightfully tasty dinner as we discovered. The setting is surrounded by wood and is very welcoming and charming. To begin our dinner, we ordered a range of delicious starters: some crispy korean chicken with a hot sauce... More

It's always busy here in the evenings, which I will take as a good sign - despite the noise, from patrons and music, and the prices, which nearly gave my friend from Leeds a heart attack (though it is London and it does depend what you choose!) A very good selection of beers indeed, with four cask ales as well... More

This place is not quit full-on gastropub, but somewhat better than chain-type pubs. The dining room is big and airy and a comfortable place to be. Service is good and my burger was fine, although not spectacular.

Often come here due to its location next to the office. Offers a wide range of beers and ales although none of the 'usual' largers you'll find at many pubs. Average london prices, staff are very friendly and attentive :-)

Great local haunt with a fantastic range of beers, worth a visit if you work locally and are looking for a place with more than just the standard range of lagers on tap. Also good for lunch - the burger is fantastic and if you're after a healthier option try the salmon salad.

One of the best pubs in the area, where I have always had excellent food. Lovely ambience and décor and, especially, very good service.

We had a short fare well drink for a colleague of ours at the back of the bar. The service was fine and the atmosphere is good. A lot of people from the area go there for a drink after work. It is absolutely fine to go there. A good mix of guests.

I attended an evening event in the downstairs bar. Whilst crowded the staff were excellent and nothing was too much trouble. My only criticism is that they had to bring the Ale from upstairs. The music was also a bit loud, which made talking difficult but that's probably my old age coming through! The canapés were excellent and certainly hit... 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.
