Kurz & Lang is a takeaway/very small eatery serving top class Bratwurts in a variety of flavours (pork, pork and beef or just beef, with different spices etc. The wursts are imported from Germany, are really meaty and make a great lunch. The side orders...More

Down to earth sausage joint with a limited selection of authentic German sausages and beer. In German tradition, this is more of a take-away/street food place; there are very limited seating opportunities inside, and only limited seating opportunities outside. Food was great, and prices are...More

I was so bizarre seeing the negative reviews about K&L on Trip Advisor.. I've been coming to this small gem at the heart of Farringdon for over a year now and I've never been disappointed! The menu can seem daunting at first but the servers...More

Owing to its proximity to Smithfield Market – the site
of an ancient meat market which remains in operation
today – Clerkenwell boasts a plethora of globally
renowned restaurants, fabulous local eateries, and
some of London's favorite pubs. This isn't merely a
focal point for all things foodie though. Spend enough

you might become accustomed to the litany of slinky
