From the early morning breakfast rush to late night parties, there's always a buzz in our Old Broad Street bar. Right opposite Tower 42 and on the route between Liverpool Street and Bank, it's a favourite spot for City workers. Light floods in through large windows at both ends of the bar, which leads off to a secluded restaurant area. This bar is special for C&B because it's on the site of our first restaurant. We've kept some mementos of the old place, though. Beside the bar you'll see a series of nine cupboards made of wood from the original restaurant. Regulars can keep their favourite spirits or cigars in there. If cupboards could speak, what tales would they tell?

If you're after a post-work drink in the City, this Corney & Barrow will do ya as good as any, I suppose. The two hours I spent in post-work sunshine/early summer London surely was a fine time.
With gaggles of girls perched on the lawn and throngs of suits letting off steam -- it's not bad for people watching, either.more
A lovely place to go for a few drinks after work in the City. As a co-worker noted, it's very suit-y, but it's got a great drink list, attentive staff, and plenty of space. We were a group of five who arrived right after work on a weekday and snagged a booth table in the back and spent a few hours there. To soak up the tasty Malbec, we also shared a platter of delicious vegetarian nibbles, it...more
Ok I've only been there for one drink on an early Friday evening, but I liked the atmosphere - full of City folk - of course! What else do you expect from a bar on Old Broad Street...but it wasn't filthy (which is a rarity for the City).
Ample space, tall ceilings and unpretentious atmosphere. I liked it a lot!more
