Great scenery but food was terrible. Paid a lot of money per head and expected much more. 3 Bird Starter had no sauce to which it was crying out for. This little chick flew from it's nest.

Beautifully decorated traditional pub - fantastic value, choice of three Christmas menus, including vegetarian option. Tables laid with white linen cloths, crackers, nuts, satsumas and chocolates. Sunnil (& staff) very helpful and friendly - would definitely recommend and return.

Came across this pub while out in London. What a great find! Little dark from outside but once inside it's like a funky gin bar! Now we don't drink gin but watching groups of men drinking gin cocktails was fun! Great atmosphere I highly recommend:)

Had a scrumptious Sloe Gin Fizz cocktail in this lovely old London pub. The fish and chips for £6.50 looked and smelt delicious but as we had already eaten at a more expensive pub further up the road, we missed out on this bargain! The...More

Visited many times and enjoyed each visit. The pub can become busy at times with either tourists / people visiting shows or both but you still get a good welcome with efficient staff. The pub is really great when not so busy. Good choice of...More

Been there twice on a business lunch. Food is good but service is pretty poor. Specials of the day are a good deal. Tarts are delicious and good portion size

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

towers such as Norman Foster’s Gherkin mingle with
Roman ruins and architectural marvels from virtually
every era in between, including Christopher Wren's
