Summary

“The buzz is returning to pre-crash heights” at this Square Mile linchpin; OK, the food is only “satisfactory” and the ex-banking-hall interior is a “bit cavernous and plain”, but tables are “well-spaced”, and its “capable” style and central location make it “a perfect setting for the City”.

Summary

This heart-of-the-City “stalwart”, in a former banking hall, is still often hailed as “a good place to impress clients” (or for breakfast); too often of late, however, it has struck reporters as “bland” or “soulless”“you probably wouldn’t go if you weren’t on expenses!”

Summary

This “airy” and “impressive” former banking hall, opposite the Royal Exchange, remains a key City rendezvous – “an excellent all-round breakfast or lunch option, even if prices do reflect the location”; for gravitas to the max, head for the ‘fine-dining’ room at the rear.
