It is now 1021pm. We arrived at 815 for our 830 table. Still no main course. I am rapidly giving up the will to live. Will never ever come here again.

“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
