This very “convenient” and sizeable bar-restaurant from Drake & Morgan, near the Guildhall, is valued for its efficiency and reliable (if pretty standard) menu. Nothing about it will set the world on fire, but it’s a pleasant and versatile standby that can be pressed into action for any number of occasions.

“Deservedly busy”, attractive bar/restaurant near the Guildhall whose “spacious tables work for meetings, brunch, lunch, dinner…”. “It’s a lazy option as the food’s good not great, but it’s close to work and easy to book”.

“Bustling”, large bar/restaurant near the Guildhall, whose “different” look for the Square Mile “makes for a good atmosphere”. The food’s somewhere between “just right for a business meeting” and “pretty average”, and service-wise it can be “a slight case of it just being plonked down”.
