They try quite hard here and it was the run up to Christmas. We had smoked salmon (bit on the small side) and sirloins after. Plenty of beer , wine and port afterwards. One of the few old style City drinking and dining haunts left.

Dear ChrisHuntingdon, Thank you for your review of your visit to Bangers over the Christmas period. I apologise you felt that the salmon was on the small side though I'm pleased you enjoyed the atmosphere of the venue and the rest of your experience, and hope to welcome you back soon. Your Sincerely, Alex Walsh More

Friendly service who fitted us in even though we had not booked (they were very busy!). Whitstable pale Ale was well kept and delicious. The Smoked Chicken Caesar salad was correct with anchovies, tasty and nicely filling. A good place to call in for a pint of fill up on pub food.

Alex W, Manager at Bangers, responded to this review

Dear billthefirst, Thank you for your kind words regarding the service, food and the beer - the Whitstable Bay Pale is a particular favourite of mine also! I'm glad the team managed to find a table for you during a busy service and hope you will return again soon. Yours Sincerely, Alex Walsh More

I've visited Bangers on many occasions over the past 15 years and the service has remained excellent throughout. Quieter than the busy wine bars in the area . Worth a visit.

You come in off the street and downstairs into a basement bar area. Cosy, welcoming and good service.

The description of my seafood tagliatelle sounded lovely but when it arrived it was a disappointment. Served on a cold plate and the (thin) tagliatelle was barely luke warm.

Neighbourhood Profile
City of London
From its ancient past as a Roman trading outpost to its 21st century status as the wealthiest square mile in the world, the financial district known simply as “The City” is one of London's most historic and fascinating neighbourhoods. 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.
