A trendy open-plan city bar, The Gable offers delicious European classics, ice-cold beers and a 50-strong wine list. In the dining room, glossy tiling, eclectic furnishings and exposed pipes evoke a funky East-end vibe, and a bustling open kitchen showcases the chefs at work. As well as succulent meat cuts and nostalgic 'old school' options, a speciality seafood range is consistently popular.

Not gonna mention anything about this being a "suit bar" being that it is in the City. D'uh.

Its a decent place with a maze of doors to get to the restrooms or the Loo as Brits say.
I don't think I'll be going again or go out of my way to go there but it was a decent place to visit and...more
