Excellent range of beers and a very warm and friendly welcome. American/ Mexican food. It’s in a basement but the atmosphere is good. There is also some Limited outdoor seating on the path outside. The lady behind the bar was knowledgeable and an excellent host.

“The City” is one of London's most historic and
