The Vintry & Mercer neighbourhood bustles with classic British gourmet experiences, from a full English shared with London cabbies, to that Cockney stalwart of smoked eels. Since the Sixties, the family-run Maria’s Market Cafe in Borough Market has been serving up the best bubble and squeak and mugs of tea in London. For lunch, there’s Sweetings on Queen Victoria Street, the oldest fish restaurant in the city, for oysters and lobster. Beneath the cobblestones of Leadenhall Victorian market is Beadles, a wine bar which hosts tastings and private events. There’s also Cheese at Leadenhall, offering over 200 cheeses from Britain and Europe.
Like Vintry & Mercer, the City of London savours tradition, but it also embraces innovation in its restaurants and bars. For the highest outdoor dining terrace in Europe, there’s SUSHISAMBA, delivering a unique blend of Japanese, Brazilian and Peruvian cuisine. There’s also Michelin-starred Restaurant Story — Tom Seller’s debut eatery, which tells the story of seasonal British food through an endlessly evolving 10-course menu. Or for a more casual dining experience, Elliot’s Cafe in Borough Market offers simple, mindful cooking where fresh ingredients are done to perfection on a wood-fired grill.
