City of London: Hawksmoor Guildhall
After the rigours of a night trading millions, busy bankers in the City of London revive themselves at Hawksmoor Guildhall. The uncompromising vaulted, brick-walled industrial-style decor is the perfect background for the uncompromising breakfast of smoked bacon chop, sausages (made especially for them by the famed Ginger Pig company), black pudding, bubble and squeak, grilled bone marrow, baked beans, fried eggs, mushrooms and tomatoes. Topping it all off is a large dollop of gravy made with that must-have British staple, HP sauce.
