In the shadow of St Paul’s Cathedral yet peaceful and quiet with a selection of restaurants and wine bars. It’s a good place to sit and rest yet close to so many attractions.

I took my mum here for her 50th birthday for a Sunday roast. We all had the sharing platter roast with unlimited wine. The food and wine was great, I truly recommend to everyone. The service was brilliant and I can’t recommend this place enough!
