A great brunch menu on a Saturday and the service is excellent. The full English and the anchovy butter is a nice touch.

Ting at the Shangri-La
On the 35th floor of the Shard, Ting delivers the astonishing views that you would expect. What I didn't expect was the incredible food that was pretty good value for money - £55 for four mouth-watering courses and the prettiest dessert I've ever seen!

Did you know?
"Rumoured to be the oldest pub in the City, the Hoop and Grapes is still equipped with its "listening tube" that enables people in the cellar to eavesdrop on conversations in the bar. Probably used by the landlord in the time of Cromwell to listen out for any conspiracies that were being plotted!"
