“Pies to die for” are the ace in the Brit-food pack at this “huge dining room” of a business-friendly hotel on the edge of the City. Chef Calum Franklin is the “wizard” behind this “savoury pastry mecca”, which has its own Pie Room with a dedicated take-away hatch, along with pie and Wellington masterclasses. Top Tip: “excellent choice for breakfast, too”.
This “lovely, grand dining room” on the edge of the City is designed to impress, and provides “a great buzz”, and “classic staple dishes” to a largely business clientele, including first thing when it’s “an excellent breakfast venue”. Sartorially speaking, views divide on the “amusing trousers” which are standard issue for the waiting staff. STOP PRESS: In autumn 2017 a dedicated pie hatch is due to open.
The “splendid appearance” of this impressive chamber, on the fringe of the City makes it “perfect for a high-level business discussion” (fuelled perhaps by a visit to its “fantastic” adjoining Scarfes Bar). “You wouldn’t maybe choose it for a gastronomic experience”, but all reports agree “it won’t let you down”.
With its “old school glamour”, this “impressive”-looking operation (on the site that was once Pearl, RIP) is quite “a wow”, and its “spacious” and “buzzy” quarters are ideal for business; food-wise, however, it’s “nothing out of this world”. Top Tip – Check out the “wonderful” adjoining Scarfes Bar.
