The good burgers and plenty of alcohols. Reasonable price and high ceiling plus plenty of tables. It is a really nice place to meet, inside of the place is really gorgeous.

I've used the Counting House a lot in the past. Mainly for lunches and non-seated-food team events. It's generally been good. My last visit was diabolical and frankly embarrassing (I'd organised). We were a group of 17 with an evening reservation. I'll start with what...More

Built in 1893 as a magnificent banking hall, the aptly named Counting House oozes 19th Century decadence. With gleaming chandeliers and high domed ceiling, it's a stunning place to stop by for a hand-raised pie and a pint of real ale in the heart of London.
