“Spectacular views” reward a trip to the 24th floor of the City’s Tower 42, run since 2014 by Jason Atherton’s empire – “an elegant dining room, whose bar is quite sexy at night time with the lights of London on display”. Unsurprisingly, it’s most recommended as a “reliable option” for business entertaining, a service it carries out with aplomb. A foodie paying their own way, however, might judge the cuisine “OK, but nothing overly exciting”.

“On the 24th-floor of Tower 42, looking across at the Gherkin and Heron Tower, you enjoy some of the most spectacular views of the City” at Jason Atherton’s “sleek, swish and professional” eyrie: a natural favourite for wining and dining in the Square Mile. On most accounts the “fantastic” cuisine is almost as stunning as the panorama, but there is also a school of thought that it’s “average for such excessive prices”.

“You do pay for the vista”, but Jason Atherton’s 24th floor perch, in the City’s Tower 42 boasts “thrilling views” and “plenty of wow factor”, hence it’s often “first choice for a business lunch” (“clients love it!”). “The food won’t take your breath away, but you won’t complain either”.
