Diner Reviews
  • "We had a lovely meal here - staff were friendly and attentive. Steaks were really well cooked, sweet potato fries were very tasty. My only gripe was the £5 side of market veg. We got a tiny little copper saucepan with about 3 pieces of broccoli. I thought everything else was reasonable value (for a City restaurant) but that side was a joke. Overall, the meal was good so we didn't say anything but I wouldn't bother ordering a side like that next time. We didn't get around to trying the cocktails so we will be heading back to try them another time!"

  • "My friend and I work at RBS across the road and are so happy this is now in Bank. We really like what the new owners have done with the place. Cocktails were amazing and we both had food in the bar which was amazing. The staff were also so friendly and attentive, makes a change from many other businesses in the area. Will definitely be back!!"

  • "Really enjoyed an evening here, I had the Scallops to start and Rib-eye on the Bone for main, both were fantastic especially the steak. No room for dessert however I was convinced to have barrel aged Manhattan that went down very well. I will be back and highly recommend."

  • "Great new venue in The City of London. We were greeted by a friendly host and had cocktails at the bar before going to our table upstairs. The cocktails were amazing and the bar tender informed us that all cocktails are aged in house for a long time in oak barrels. I had a manhattan which was just out of this world. Upstairs in the restaurant is nice, we had a table with a view over the ground floor and a beautiful stag made from pennies - very impressive! The meal was great, as was the service. We had scallops and mackerel pate to start - both great. The steaks were also lovely, my rib eye was cooked to perfection. Will definitely go back again!"

  • "The food was good, eventually. However, I was first of all given the wrong meal. This was handled well, though. Oh, and the cocktails are superb!"

  • "Service was abysmal. I understand that this is the soft opening period but when the food arrived, we were missing one main course of Sirloin steak, a side of chilli buttter and one cold Porterhouse steak. There was no explanation and when we asked, we were told that the sirloin was on its way from the kitchen and it would be 5 minutes. No apology either. Everyone else's main had already arrived. It took quite a while for the steak to arrive and by then, most of the group had already eaten their way through the main course. Unfortunately, the steak was overcooked. Not medium rare as ordered. We were offered a discount on the bill afterwards, so that was a reasonable gesture. It's good value because we had 50% off but otherwise not worth it."

  • "Good choice on the menu, not just steak. Good value using the 50% discount offer. Otherwise quite expensive and portions on the small side. But the rustic and sweet potato chips were fantastic.."

  • "We went to the restaurant on opening week where all the food was half price. Our group of 4 had a starter, a main and a desert each from the a la carte menu. Considering everything was half price the value for money was good, but I would never pay full price for that standard of food. Generally speaking, the dish was cooked well, for example the lamb shanks were quite succulent, but the seasoning was completely off for pretty much all the dishes, everything tasted of....well not much at all. There was very little flavor in any of the foods and to charge nearly Michelin star level prices for average tasting meals in a place where a rowdy pubcrowd is underneath the dining area is simply outrageous."

  • "We took advantage of the 50% off food offer, and wasn't disappointed. Being new we thought that there might be a few hiccups with the food and service, but everything was fine and couldn't fault either. Obviously with the 50% offer it made for great value, but I will definitely go back in the future and happily pay full price."

  • "The food was okay but we did not feel it was great value, even with the promotional offer. The music was very loud."

  • "We used to come here all the time when it was the door and it was a very laid back, no fuss kind of place. Firstly, the service was terrible. Secondly, the food was disappointing to say the least and the portion sizes were small. I get what they are trying to do with the barrelled cocktails here but I just don't think it strikes the same note with the city crowd."
