Starter of pulled pork casidilla was excellent. Main course burger just OK. Taste fine but was pretty dry. The bun was hard. Fries cold and limp. Service was good and it's a nice room. Good music playing. Wine by the glass was decent. Would have been OK value except I was too nice to throw the burger back at them.... More

I've been here countless times and the food is always top notch. I've tried the burger, baby back ribs, chicken wings, chicken thighs, pulled pork etc etc. All of it is good and you certainly won't be leaving hungry. My favourite item on the menu are the large buffalo chicken wings that you can order as a starter. They're friggin'... More

We landed here at teatime before collecting the cases from our hotel and heading home. We'd read reviews and weren't disappointed. We were seated immediately which was great as time was limited. The place was quirky. As we were in a rush, we ordered a main course only. It arrived quickly & can't be faulted. Food was delicious. I also... More

This restaurant was located near our hotel, so we decided to have dinner there. We did not have great expectations, but this turned out to be a good surprise. Friendly staff, good quality food and average price.

And is going with small tables, no wi-fi. About the food is not so much to say, is cooked over night and warm a bit and served. No taste and hard to chew. The tip is included and overall you will pay a lot for not so much. I give 2 stars and not one because starters was good, with... 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.
