I just love this place! If you want steak and chips with a nice glass of red wine there’s nowhere better in the City. Good service as well, highly recommended.

Ideal for a quick lunch if you are in for salad, steak, chips and an espresso. No fuss, easy service and had no time to stay for what looked like a lovely cheese plate.

As a waiter I try to give every venue the benefit of the doubt. After some shoddy service and very average food, I was left trying to defend the behaviour of staff that were supremely rude to my party, culminating with bringing the manager over...More

However, something really spoiled my experience. I requested butter to spread on my bread, and was politely told...More

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
