I've been here twice. First time (few months ago) I had a good experience throughout (business lunch). I returned here on 16th Feb for a business lunch with a customer. Food was good and well presented: we had burrata and crab as starters and then salad and hake as mains (hake was really good). Service was very disappointing, though. We... More

Good place for a business dinner, located in "the Brewery" which also includes a five star hotel and a gastro pub. At our table we had oysters, steak tartare, pork terrine, chicken, rump steak, fish n chips and risotto - everything very tasty. Nice wines too.

Had a great team meeting in Grubb Street private Dining Room. We then had drinks in the bar area, where they had thoughtfully reserved an area for our group (which was just as well, as it was phenomenally busy! Clearly a popular choice!) The dining room area was reset beautifully for dinner, and was very comfortable for the 9 of... More

Visited on a snowy January night - I really enjoyed my selection of food delivered to a delightfully high standard - Beetroot salad and Chestnut Gnochi - tasty and lovely. My partner through was not as enamoured with his terrine and steak. Drinks and service was just about right so overall nice. We would probably go back but not on... More

This restauarant is part of the Montcalm hotel and as such provides on site dining for guests and members of the public alike.

Chiswell Street Dining Rooms hosted our office Christmas lunch in the Grubb Street private room. The room itself was well laid out, and from the moment we arrived, we had a dedicated member of staff to serve drinks, and who then looked after us perfectly for the rest of the (long!) afternoon. Between us, we had more or less everything... 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.
