Foxlow

Amazing food! The service is fantastic and the steak and salmon are out of this world...

J & A Café

The best Irish fry up with real Irish soda bread and Ballymaloe relish!

Mugen

Owned and operated by Japanese ladies, this gem on Cowcross Street opposite Farringdon Station offers quite simply the best selection of sushi and other Japanese food this side of Kyoto!

The Museum of the Order of St John Cloister Garden

A wonderful quiet garden for people in the know and ideal to sit in on a summer's day. Make sure you also take time to find the entrance to the original crypt, a wonderfully thematic space with tombs dating back hundreds of years.

Every sport on multiple wide screens and great burgers. The champagne cocktails are to die for!

Great coffee and even better banana bread!
