This City-based grill overlooking St Paul's Cathedral, from D&D London, is pitched firmly at the location’s business diners – but it does have a romantic side, as the location for seven years of ‘reality’ TV show First Dates, starring maître d’ extraordinaire Fred Sirieix, with actors playing the parts of waiting and bar staff.

This business-friendly venue overlooking St Paul’s Cathedral is part of the D&D London operation and offers “pretty good steaks” cooked over charcoal, although the “ridiculous prices” have sometimes detered all but expense account diners (and maybe also TV fans, as the show First Dates has been filmed here for the past six years). In November 2020, its moving sticks to a new site a short walk away due to the refurbishment of its current site.

Overlooking St Paul’s from the fringes of the Square Mile’s Paternoster Square development, this D&D London operation caters mainly for City expense-accounters. It’s best known as the location for TV show First Dates, but for romance look elsewhere – “the tables are too close together” and the food’s “expensive and average”.

For 31 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. In a typical year, diners submit over 50,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK. Each year, the guide is re-written from scratch based on this survey (although for the 2021 edition, reviews are little changed from 2020 as no survey could run for that year).
