As many financial services companies have migrated to Mayfair, the Eastern edge of the City around Tower Hill & Aldgate has lost its soul. There are many boarded up properties. What has happened to the bar I still think of as the Savage Grill is a good example. It's changed names more times than I can remember since those days, and when I saw its latest mutation was into a Bavarian Beer House (I know the Royal Family originally came from Germany, but allowing a monstrosity like this right by the Tower of London is absurd) I didn't even go in. I went into the Cheshire Cheese over the road instead. The idea of sitting at a table with a blue & white checkered cloth, waiting for a girl in German native dress to come and serve me was more than I could stand... The Pitcher & Piano was OK, and I had bored the girl behind the bar telling her what it had been like there in the early 80s. Eventually there won't be a bar or pub there at all. Hopefully the Ship will still be there up the road, or even the Wine Lodge in Fenchurch Street if you really desperate for a drink.

Bavarian Beer House, well it looks like Heidi would fit in, but there is little else one could call Germanic about the place, except of course for their extortionate pricing. �4.20 for a pint with a huge head and a 'humpf' when you ask for a top up. Best avoided if not addicted to bratwurst.

The Pitcher and Piano has closed and has become the second branch of the Bavarian Beerhouse (Old Street).

Went here last week and wasn't impressed. Firstly, the staff didn't seem to know the price of the drinks, as we were charged something different every time we went to the bar, despite ordering exactly the same drink every time!
The staff were a bit surly and miserable. Toilets were unclean, out of tissue and smelly. Not a place I want to come back to in a hurry.

Wow , will have to keep an eye out for the gay builders....was going to say I like this plcae. They have quite a few tables outside which is good for us smokers. The bar man told me they were planning on opening later soon, whcih will make a nice alternative to the revolting Charlie's.
