Just simple good food. Good house red at a good price. No menu as only steak chips and sauce along with an excellent walnut salad.

One of my favourite places to eat in the City. Perfect for business meetings (as long as your fellow diners like steak) as they do one thing on the menu and do it very well. You pay £24 a head at lunchtime and get a...More

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
