Another dime a dozen London pub.. As I walked in it stank of cooked fish.. Rather pungent to be honest but I thought I would grab a beer anyway.. Actually it's quite nice inside, quite spacious and traditional except from the staff. Blonde headed bar...More

We were on a course in the area and had therefore reserved a table. What is surprising is the space insight for a London Pub. We have two dishes from the Graze menu as starters which came relatively quickly. After our starters we were asked...More

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
