I have had a couple of lunches here and also recently attended their launch party. It's a fantastic venue, very light and airy right by the Tower of London. Pizzas are huge and full of flavor. The staff are friendly and efficient. Highly recommended.

Between all the attractions from the city you find this hidden place. We came for a simpel breakfast but it was very tasty! A real delight between the busy tourist to escape to this quit place. Also a great thanks to the service, they were very friendly and helpfull.

Working in the city I really struggle to find somewhere to 'eat in' other than mega busy and ropey chain sandwich shops where you have to sit on top of other people and can't hear yourself think so thank god for this lovely little venue!!! Set in a great location with a lovely little courtyard which is so rare in... More

We came for breakfast immediately prior to visiting the Tower of London. Lovely location and a nice little spot with a garden. The breakfast menu was so simple, yet had everything you could possibly want, it was exactly what we'd been looking for on our way over from the tube station. It was also reasonably priced for London. My husband... More

This was the place in the area, an oasis of calm and tasty food. Its now under new management with a different focus and the food and service is poor. Let's hope the management will get the message or it will change hands again. It does have a great location and has a lot of potential - under the right... More

We recently held a special birthday party here and were so pleased with the help given to us in organising the event. Everything was planned to the last detail, including decorations, etc. Nothing was too much trouble. Compared to other venues nearby, the costs were very reasonable and I would most definitely recommend it to anyone looking for a modern... More

I can only assume that since the new ownership, and name change to "Byward Kitchen and Bar" the quality has been lost in transition. Small portions, poor wholesaler sourced, fatty and comparatively expensive given the cheap ingredients. My poached eggs were tasteless and pale. The hash brown was fatty and generic. The sausage was small and tasteless. The one bacon... More

after a long day of walking, we stumbled across this place before heading into the Tower. And boy were we glad we did. It was a little overpriced, but the best fish and chips I had in London. Definitely worth it!

Surprised to find this little place tucked next to a church near the tower of London. The cafe was modern, staff were friendly. We didn't eat there but the food looked nice and was a standard London price. We ordered tea for four. We received two teapots filled with water and two tea bags. These teapots filled everyone's cup once... More

Seems like this place has changed ownership. The design and menu are different than many of the pictures online but the space is still beautiful. It's attached to the oldest church in London which is super cool and free to visit. Go downstairs to the crypt museum! John Quincy Adams got married there. Anyway, had the vegetarian breakfast and the... More

Here high rise office towers such as Norman Foster’s Gherkin mingle with Roman ruins and architectural marvels from virtually every era in between, including Christopher Wren's glorious St.Paul's Cathedral, and John Soane's dauntingly classicist Bank of England. This neighbourhood is also home to some of the finest restaurants and plushest hotels in Europe, in addition to an assortment of of watering holes, upscale shops, and Tube stations. During the week, the City is abuzz with white collar workers going about their business; the weekend sees this area turn into a quiet haven for sightseers.
