This quaint restaurant is attached to the All Hallows by the Tower church just a few minutes walk from The Tower of London and City offices. I visit here fairly regularly and although the menu is limited, fish and chips, burgers, salads, sandwiches it is...More

We stopped for lunch after visiting the Tower and were not disappointed. The food would not blow one away, but it was more than acceptable at the price we paid. The service was also very good. Highly recommended.

We hired the entire restaurant for a business function. The staff were really efficient and the food was really tasty - serving up 27 portions of hot fish n chips can't be easy. We had 50 minutes before we had to leave for a tour...More

Slow service, small menu, uninteresting surroundings, uncomfortable chairs and average food. No reason to eat here.

The place is really cosy and few steps from Tower hill. The food was delicious but for the price I spent, I was expecting a bigger english Breakfast. Even the service is quite slow, and the place was no busy at all.

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

Hiya, we are looking at visiting for my birthday in April and have seen the reviews are excellent! Just one question, with the afternoon tea are we able to ask for more of something, as in the sandwiches or cakes if need be?
