    Visited without pre-booking and they accommodated us. Excellent service and excellent quality. Good for a business meeting or a casual catch up with friends or family. £20-25 per person budget including a drink is possible. Options for vegetarians available here!

    Just wanted to say your barman, Adam can be taught a lesson in politeness. We visited the bar after work, it wasn’t even that busy on a Tuesday, probably about 5 people at the bar. My colleague asked if you had a certain Gin, Adam says no, so she looks over the bar to see what Gin’s you have. Adam goes: well hurry up because you should know what you want before coming to the bar and I have other people to help. Excuse you?!

    Well what can I say.. went there for our Christmas party it was all fun and games until it came to food… the Christmas menu wasn’t great so I ordered off the Menu. Ribeye and sweet potato fries my go to. My colleagues had the Christmas menu which was missing stuffing for the Christmas dinner plate and cranberry sauce. It’s not Christmas dinner without cranberry or stuff. When my ribeye finally came it was undercooked ( I always have my steak Well done) sent it back to the kitchen and it comes back 45 minutes later when we here leaving 🤦🏽‍♀️ for a city restaurant not great

    I tried the Christmas menu which was really good. I must say the food was on point and I finished it all! It may be a little pricy but given location, I suspect it’s in line. Lacked a little salt but overall I’d go there for the meal again and friendly staff.

    The Sterling based on the ground floor of The Gherkin building is a trendy bar with two floors. The ground floor is a general public access bar which serves cocktails, beer, wine, spirits. They also serve food. Upstairs there is a much smaller space which can be used for private hire such as drinks and canapes reception. Canapes were good and staff lovely.
