The food is a regularly changing menu of interesting small plates, Always good vegetarian choices and always a decent selection of wines. But there is so much else to like about it too: It is smack in the middle of the city, great for me...More

City of London
From its ancient past as a Roman trading outpost to

Roman ruins and architectural marvels from virtually
every era in between, including Christopher Wren's
