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.

This bar is for city workers to drink at lunchtime and after work. They serve food but it is quite poor. Had to ask from cultery and napkin when the mayonaisse the gave me in a rampkin was crusty and yellow around the edge.

We'd been at the theatre at the Barbican and cantered round the corner for a last drink before home. It was a very warm evening, so perhaps not surprising that inside the pub was deserted. Sitting outside it was hard to talk over the ear-splitting...More

Great place for a drink or two after office hours. Great atmosphere of business people chilling and relaxing after a day at the desk. Can be very busy at times but this adds to the vibe and feel of the bar.More

Service was friendly and quick, just walk up to the bar and order. I had the fish and chips that was really good. Most people were having an after work drink.
