Stopped in for lunch before a business meeting. My colleague and I both had a burger. The food was very quick and very tasty. Good value at £11 each. Didn't like the Heineken beer as it tasted a little flat. Other than that no complaints....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

Roman ruins and architectural marvels from virtually
every era in between, including Christopher Wren's
