A word from C&B Old Broad Street
From the early morning breakfast rush to late night parties, there's always a buzz in our Old Broad Street bar. Right opposite Tower 42 and on the route between Liverpool Street and Bank, it's a favourite spot for City workers. Light floods in through large windows at both ends of the bar, which leads off to a secluded restaurant area.

This bar is special for C&B because it's on the site of our first restaurant. We've kept some mementos of the old place, though. Beside the bar you'll see a series of nine cupboards made of wood from the original restaurant. Regulars can keep their favourite spirits or cigars in there. If cupboards could speak, what tales would they tell?

Diner Reviews
  • "Having eaten here twice now, in the hopes that the second time we would get some better service, it quickly became apparent upon arrival that this would not be the case. The food is good, albeit a tad expensive for what it is, the location is prime for business lunch and the atmosphere is quite nice. The major pitfall is definitively the lack of service, attention and any kind of care from the restaurants serving staff. Barring this, if you don't mind an exceptionally long lunch this is a decent dive."

  • "We visited C&B for a work team lunch. Some of the meals were poor and not as expected. Service was very slow for food - the starters were not served for 30mins (bread and oil). The air conditioning was also up too high where we were sitting. I would recommend C&B Old Broad Street for drinks but not for lunch."

  • "stalwart city lunch. buzzing. friendly service. great steak. microscopic tuna starter."
    dined on 20/03/2014
  • "The re-fit has changed little, but this is a popular city wine bar offering standard fare. Service is generally good and the surroundings are very pleasant"
    dined on 10/03/2014
  • "C&B was always a good choice as it is well located to the City and serves very standard, but good value pub grub. Great way to line the stomach before a night out!"

  • "The food was excellent and good value, portions were very reasonable, the service was also very good."
    dined on 08/01/2014
  • "We were all very dissaspointed that your 'limited' menu that was on offer did not include your simple sandwichs! Therefore, we did not order any food and just had a drink. We did not want a great big meal or the small appetisers (which are very over priced for what they are) that you only offered that day."

  • "We were happy to be able to book a table for lunch during the week before Christmas. Despite many people having pre-Christmas lunch, service was very friendly. The food was good and everyone was happy with their choice: Fish pie, Salmon fish cakes and Cornish Pollock. We would go again."

    dined on 18/12/2013
  • "Great evening ambience at C&B. Perfect place to stop for a bit and a drink amongst other lovely revellers. The staff and service was friendly and fabulous!! They looked after us when things weren't going quite right and we had a ball as a result!"
    dined on 12/12/2013
  • "I booked this restaurant because of the location, and it is a large venue. When I visited it was full of people enjoying the Christmas spirit, no one was eating in the ground floor bar area."
    dined on 12/12/2013
  • "I booked a table very late on the day (12.15 for a 12.30 table!), but was pleasantly surprised to get confirmation. Was made to feel an individual rather than just a booking reference. Very courteous and professional staff. Attentive, prepared to suggest options for lunch! Service very good during the meal, food was very well prepared and presented. Also very quick to respond when the bill needed to be paid. All round good experience - will return, I am sure!"

    dined on 20/08/2013
  • "Had an enjoyable meal. C&B can always be counted on for reasonable quality food and a good atmosphere, without being overly formal. It's a great choice for a business lunch with people you know pretty well and can have a more relaxed time with."
    dined on 21/05/2013
  • "Short, swift lunch. Fairly ok menu, nothing exciting but we had a deal so made it worthwhile."
    dined on 31/01/2013
  • "* The waiter refilled my water glass before I even noticed it was empty * Great food, served quickly * All staff were very attentive"
    dined on 13/12/2012
  • "Sausage and Mash was ok, swimming in a thin gravy but nothing special to be honest. Generally I find the food to be good but very standard stuff."
    dined on 28/03/2013
  • "My colleagues and I always enjoy lunching here because the staff are always friendly and attentive, the lunchtime food service is quick and we thoroughly enjoyed the food. The ambience is bright and the atmostphere buzzy."
    dined on 22/03/2013
  • "Great food, good value (as on deal for January), staff very friendly although hard to get attention at times (but very friendly when they did arrive). Over door heaters were broken so restaurant was very cold (it was already snowing outside). Were offered to move table but already had our food. Thank you - will come again."
    dined on 18/01/2013
  • "Service slow. Chips forgotten and when added on separately, and delivered very late, we got charged more than we would if put through with the original order. Not great value."
    dined on 17/01/2013
  • "A good place all round - and take advantage of the special offer they have for January to get great value! The fish and chips special on Fridays is always worthwhile."
    dined on 04/01/2013
  • "We went for a maternity leave send off lunch - just the girls. Our food was delayed and quite cold but luckily most were sandwiches. The staff were pleasant and apologetic and gave us a free bowl of curly fries which was forgotten about from the original order."
    dined on 29/11/2012
  • "we had a good lunch the food is always good but not much of a veggie option"
    dined on 20/12/2012
  • "Food is good value and tasty. The service is a little too light touch in my opinion although it is reasonably friendly."
    dined on 13/12/2012
  • "We went for a quick business lunch outside of the office - good staple meals and very quickly delivered as well."
    dined on 26/11/2012
  • "Dined here for a breakfast meeting and we were placed at the back of the restaurant as it seemed to be the only area with a table large enough to accommodate more than five people. There were no other diners around us, so the ambience wasn't lively, and the staff focused their efforts more towards the front of the restaurant, so it was sometimes difficult to get their attention. The food was okay and, for the City, represented fairly good value. I would recommend this restaurant for quick, informal breakfast meetings. Being seated near the front of the restaurant may have yielded a better experience."
    dined on 02/10/2012
  • "Interesting menu selection and good specials. Main meals priced from around £10-£15 each, not bad for The City. We had a business lunch there and would return."
    dined on 15/05/2012
  • "Corney & Barrow Old Broat St is fab for lunch not overly busy and good service"
    dined on 10/05/2012
  • "Good place for a quick lunch, food was fine, bit pricey for some things though."
