Photographed my first London Wedding here back in March 2018. Such a beautiful venue, so ideal for a small family wedding. Myself and my 2nd Photographer were made to feel welcomed the second we walked into the place. Anything they could do to help and assist they did. Although it was on and off with rain all day, it was a beautiful wedding that put non of the guests or the Bride and Groom off. Hope to get another chance to work here soon.

Too noisy for a meeting, though very nice environment. The best waiter ever we had - an Italian guy who made an excellent presentation of the food and a funny story about the monkfish. Certainly will remember. :) The food was also delicious and well-served. Overall, an excellent, high-quality place.

Nice venue, but staff are slow and rude, drinks are expensive and music quite loud for a place clearly not intended for dancing. I had to lean forward all night.

Really nice place with great food and well positioned in Paternoster Square. Geared up mainly for the tourists but lovely place for all to visit. Large open restaurant with nice outdoor areas too and not too close to neighbouring tables so it felt quite intimate.

Good vibe. Its in the heart of London, directly on Paternoster Square. As a result, it's usually quite busy on Thursdays and Friday with City workers. The drinks are good and service is usually friendly. They also have a function area you can reserve for events if needed. It's also conveniently located a short 2min walk from St. Paul's Station.
