29 of us sat down for dinner in the Griffin Room at 6.30 pm and enjoyed a superb four course meal during which we heard speeches, told jokes and sang songs. The serving staff were wonderful and the courses were served when we specified. Really...looking forward to our AGM in October. Thank you again The Counting House.More

🚇 Bank 🍺 £6.90 Asahi The Counting House on Cornhill has to be one of the most impressive pubs I have visited in recent years. On entering this cavernous almost cathedral like pub I was simply in awe of the scale, beauty of this behemoth of a...boozer. Over the years I have visited a number of @fullers pubs and it’s fair to say they have a great vision of how the modern day pub should look and feel. There are so many stand out features here, the island bar and the high domed ceiling being the highlights for me. . This pubs isn’t just about eye candy and architecture, if you don’t look after your punters then it is all just folly. The beer choice is solid, the real ale connoisseur has five cask ales to choose from. The draught choice is also good, I love a pint of Asahi even if it is the most expensive pint Fullers offer. The menu here is full of British classics, fish and chips will set you back £17. There are also reasonably priced rooms here If you want to set up a base on a visit to the city of London, prices start at £105 a night. . I don’t know about you but now and again I like a bit of posh, even if it means paying over the odds. Here at the @countinghouse they have created a place where the city workers and tourists have an amazing place to have a beer, a pie, a chat, a meet or even a place to stay. This is one of Londons most beautiful pubs, make sure you add it to your must visit list. . 📊 Information correct on visiting 21/02/22More

Came across this pub on a Saturday lunchtime. It looked nice from the outside so we decided to pop in for a pint and it is just as nice inside. Thought we’d have a bit lunch so hubby had the club sandwich and I had...the fish finger sandwich and what lovely fish fingers they were too. Would definitely pop in again on our next trip to LondonMore

So happy we happened to stumble in from the cold to find a great dining experience. Traveling thru London waiting for a late dinner reservation our party decided to stop for a quick bite that turned into an early dinner. The ambience, the food and...service was great, and as it turned out we were glad we stopped since our original destination was late and was not what we expected. So if in London and you are looking for a place full of history and great service and food then I highly recommend The Counting House.More

Ate here on Wednesday last week: we popped in for a mid morning drink and saw that the dining area is upstairs so almost dismissed it: (my husband has a back injury and cannot do stairs). However, on chatting with the barmaid, she said she...could arrange a table in the bar for our evening meal so we booked. On arrival, the bar was extremely busy with City workers, but there was a reserved sign on "our" table and the thong of people moved away to enable us to take our seats. The meals here are typical pub fare, but done very well: we enjoyed our pies enormously. I have nothing but praise for this place and highly recommend it. If ever I'm back in "The City" I know where I'll be heading.More

One of my wife’s birthday presents was an overnight stay in London and tickets to watch the Sunday matinee of Hamilton so we were so excited for it. We are frequent visitors to London but this is the first time someone else had booked our...accommodation so we had no idea what we were getting. The Counting House is just beautiful. So much history in one building and our room was phenomenal. Really clean and spacious with a very comfortable king size bed not to mention the mini fridge and nespresso machine which were complimentary. It even had a Marshall Bluetooth speaker which was a welcomed addition from us. Breakfast was included and we had a little continental set up. Tea, Coffee, Juices and then options from the Breakfast Menu itself. Being Vegetarian and predominantly Plant Based this venue is really inclusive of this which is great! Breakfast we both got the Plant Breakfast which we both enjoyed as well as enjoying some fresh fruit from the continental buffet too. From checking in with Egle through to breakfast with the young lady who’s name I didn’t get and everything in between, our stay was a solid 10/10 and we would definitely stay here again. Easy to get to as a short walk from both Bank and Cannon Street and nestled in between some beautiful historic architecture So if you’re thinking of staying here, don’t hestitate!More

Some months back we booked for 1 night on Saturday 12th March to join friends in that area for an anniversary celebration. The Hotel cancelled our reservation with less than 24 hours notice saying they could no longer accommodate us. We did not see the...email until early Saturday morning whilst we were already packing and taxi was on its way. We had no alternative but to cancel the taxi and our meal booking for late afternoon losing our deposit. The whole weekend was spoilt by this hotel and we are still unsure of the reason for their decision. At such short notice we could easily have turned up reception to find we didn’t have a room!! Extremely unhappy 🙁More

Just an overnight stay as we were attending a ceremony at the Guildhall the next morning. The Counting House was accessible (lift), reception staff welcoming and extremely helpful and the room comfortable and well equipped including good coffee and complimentary drinks in the fridge. Bed...comfy, breakfast good, served in the pub part of the premises which is quite beautiful if you are into wood, brass and marble. Would recommend and return. Very good value for the location.More
