I had a late lunch here during the working week. The menu is varied, but is basically pub grub. I had scampi and chips. It's reasonably priced for the City. The staff are friendly and attentive. The only thing that bothered me was that the music was too loud for me. There's lots of space there too so you haven't... More

What a lovely place to visit during lunch hours. Really enjoyed the service by the waiter/waitress . Food was very nice, love the beetroot hummus they do. My favourite part was desert the apple crumble pie was marvellous . They do really good promotions 241 on deserts and 50% off all dishes on Monday. Will defiantly come again.

Lunch with work colleagues during a busy period at work - just the place for the team to relax and have some great food. I ordered the Asian sharing platter (with a friend). It was lovely....all the food was hot and tasted great. The atmosphere was lively, and to top it off, the food is half price on Mondays!

I have visited the S&L fairly often over the years with friends as it usually delivers on all levels. However on this last visit, I was disappointed. The waiter got my order completely wrong. The pub was only half-full so it wasn't as if they were overly busy. When the plate I did order (Asian noodle salad with chicken &... More

Visited this restaurant twice and both times had a friendly welcome from the same waitress, who remembered us. Place seemed quiet on both occasssions but seemed to have a "tick-over" trade. Reasonably priced food to an acceptable standard. Clean but interior starting to look a bit tired, and gents toilets are down a flight of stairs, although the ladies is... More

This is round the corner from work, so we come regularly, but tonight Nicola excelled herself - we booked for a baby shower/leaving do & she couldn't have been more helpful . to be fair all the staff were lovely, but Nicola went out of her way to ensure a great night night, bless her! Thank you x

We popped in here for lunch - it wasn't very busy so we were served quite quickly, although it soon started filling up. We just had a snack lunch of breaded mushrooms and potato wedges with cheese and bacon, but it was delicious and the staff were all very friendly. Would go again if we were in that vicinity.

Me and my work colleagues have been there for having a leaving lunch. Food was quite nice, we ordered plenty of food, and none of it was disappointing. Salads are very nice. Burgers were quite noce as well (not better than Byron surely). However, we enjoyed the place. Waitresses were also friendly. 😊😊😊

Came here for a work Christmas dinner. Waiters worked well to deal with the number of people we had, But we all preordered and they had to call names. We had a 19£ deal. Starter, main dessert and wine. Much starter was the soup and two small pieces of read stick. Didn't taste different to sainsbury's tomato and basil soup.... More

Was welcomed warmly and very promptly shown to our table. The waitress was very attentive and the food was lovely. The wine wednesday they offer is a really good deal and even applies to the prosecco! Where in London can you get a nice bottle of prosecco for £11 (normally £19)! Plus 2-4-1 on cocktails..... Would definately recommend and will... More

Neighbourhood 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 neighbourhoods. 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 neighbourhood is also home to some of the finest restaurants and plushest hotels in Europe, in addition to an assortment of 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.
