85 Fleet Street, London, London, EC4Y 1AE
Find this good and comfortable restaurant in the last London building designed by celebrated architect Sir Edwin Lutyens - it was built as the Reuters Headquarters. As well as a restaurant, it now houses a Bar and Members Club.

It's part of Sir Terence Conran's restaurant empire - and some of the family's private collection of artwork is displayed throughout the restaurant and club.

On the food front, the kitchen offers a menu that includes all the Conran classic's from Bibbendum & Pont de la Tour - namely, Fruits de Mers (as individual items, or as a Grand Plateau), Spit-Roast Chicken (certainly the best way to roast a bird) and Côte de Boeuf (to be shared).

These are the staples on which seasonal dishes are hung.

A winter menu brought 'Jerusalem Artichoke Soup'; 'Ballotine of Foie Gras'; 'Steak Tartare' and 'Soufflé Suisse' (cheese) amongst the starters.

'Calf's Liver, with Sauce Diable'; 'Roast Rabbit with Bacon & Mustard'; 'Roast Partridge with Chestnuts & Pancetta' and 'Gnocchi with Chanterelles & Sage' listed on the mains offerings.

There are also various good Salads if you'd like something lighter.

As would be expected, puds maintain the high standard - but don't suffer from the current trend of too many flavours & over elaboration - perhaps 'Tartes Fine aux Pommes'; 'Red Wine Pear with Cinnamon Ice Cream' and 'St. Emilion au Chocolat' - all having withstood the changing fashions of time more than successfully!

Service is stick & professional.

Excellent lighter lunches can be ordered from a Bar Menu; and Breakfast is served between 7.30 & 10.30.
