If people think £24 is expensive for a two course lunch in the city (admittedly the first is salad) then they just haven't eaten in many restaurants here. Try Gaucho down the road for a cost comparison... It is a bargain, especially as you get...More

I just love this place! If you want steak and chips with a nice glass of red wine there’s nowhere better in the City. Good service as well, highly recommended.

City of London
From its ancient past as a Roman trading outpost to
its 21st century status as the wealthiest square mile

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
