Great pub. Sadly has now closed down to make way for another empty office to be built in its place. A real shame as there are far too few decent boozers in this area.

Started the staff xmas do here, decent pub but the busy the pub got the shorter the measures got.
How hard can it be to fill the glass to the pint line ????

GK Royal London and IPA. Had the London which was all you would expect from a GK beer. Average pub.

Went here last night with some mates as part of an unofficial City walk. It was quiet when we got there. The Royal London ale was pleasant but the prices,well over £3 a pint, are staggering when compared to our locals in Hornchurch. Nice decor and clean. Pleasant barman.

Used to come here a lot in the 80, com-PLETE-ly changed since then! No longer a dingy hole on the way to somewhere else, now really quite bright and shiny shiny inside!

Greene King IPA, very nice, £3+

The City Tavern is located on Lawrence Lane, just of Cheepside, half way between Bank and St Pauls. Architecturally itís not much to look at outside, but inside is better with are more traditional pub feel with wood panelled walls and a wooden floor. I didnít realise it had a roof terrace at the time of my visit so cannot comment on whether this is as good as it looks in the photo. Itís a GK house with only two handpumps, which were dispensing GKís Royal London Beer, and IPA when I was there and the London Brew was pleasant. Itís a solid pub in a small area of the city which is largely void of traditional boozers and in only slightly let down by a weak ale choice.

Have the family from hell gone now then? And the rude Spanish one?!

What a difference a year of new management can make. Fantastic little pub in the heart of the city. Plenty of atmosphere, good menu and the beer always served as it should be - with a smile from behind the bar.

Didn't have time to visit the roof terrace, but this place seemed to have a bit more character than most City pubs. Limited choice of Greene King beers, but well kept.

Unfortunately the bar staff are incredibly rude. What a shame.

Now under new management and recent refurbishment, the City Tavern looks great! Service is good and a great atmosphere. With a good selection of food and drink.Defianetly worth a visit.
