Overview

The Rack and Tenter is a busy, but friendly and relaxed London pub found on Tenter Square, in Moorgate. With a spacious interior, and exterior, there are several areas available for small to large bookings, ideal for any function. There is a wide range of lagers and real ales available, with regular guest ales, and an extensive wine list and spirit selection to suit everyones needs. The pub menu is mainly British classics, with an American influence in some dishes. During the summer, the large rear patio comes into its own with a sun trap that is the best in the Square Mile, plus use of the piazza out front makes for a buzzy atmoshere. With plenty of TV screens, and a full Sky Sports television package, the Rack and Tenter can cover all live sporting events with ease. It's the perfect place to unwind after work over a quiet drink, or enjoy a work function inside or out.

Came here at lunch and it's great as you can sit outside in front of citypoint and they've a large screen with Wimbledon on with fake grass and some deckchairs. It's a typical city pub. Wasn't overcrowded and plenty of outside space.
