Sweetings has been serving lunch to City folks in the exact same corner spot since 1889. Over the years, not much has changed about the menu or décor (which happens to be old cartoons, photos, and cricketing memorabilia), but that’s what locals love about it. What the restaurant doesn’t do (reservations, dinner, coffee, weekends) it makes up for in what it does do, which is market-fresh fish done simply—on or off the bone, grilled, steamed, or fried. The lunch-only eatery also serves appetizers like crab and prawn cocktails, desserts like steamed syrup pudding, and classic beers in pewter mugs.

Insider Tip:

Though Sweetings is only open from 11:30 to 3pm on weekdays, you can call ahead and arrange private dinner parties in the evening.
