I have been to the above place before and had a good experience. Today, unfortunately, I have to advise that the service was extremely poor. When we arrived, the downstairs staff, requested us to go upstairs as they were busy downstairs. When went upstairs they...More

Excellent service but also atmosphere. Food at the Gallery restaurant is simple but tasty and also applied pricing is acceptable. This place is always good at any time during the day.

The restaurant and bar are in a wonderfully spacious room (see picture). I had a lunch consisting of a very good Butternut Squash Soup and tasty Beef Carpaccio. Attentive service and a reasonably relaxed atmosphere, although it seems that most of the guests work in...More

This former trading centre has been tastefully converted to a high grade emporium containing some very interesting boutiques and cafes. Situated right opposite the Bank of England the building is truly situated in the heart of the City of London.

Had a couple of beers at The Royal Exchange last night and the beer itself was good - I had Sharp's Doom Bar which I know well from having lived in Cornwall and whilst it now owned by a big brewer I think, it still...More

Very conveniently near to Euston Station if you want a traditional pub with traditional good food rather than eating a Burger King on the way platform. As with London pubs the £4.80 a pint of bitter is always a shock I should be used to...More

City of London
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
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
