Reasons for trip

After an interesting morning exploring the “City of London”:, we headed for lunch at Leadenhall Market. We spotted two options which at 12.15pm were still quiet: the “Lamb Tavern”: and the “New Moon”: We chose the latter as the menu didn’t appear so formal with starters/snacks like scotch egg and sausage roll.

Having become familiar with the Covid-19 rules of waiting to be seated, hand sanitising and being shown to a table, we sat at one of the half a dozen high tables and stools opposite the long bar. The menu had a good range of dishes and I chose a halloumi and grilled peach salad whilst Roy opted for a steak sandwich and was asked how he’d like it cooked. As Rishi was paying 50% of the cost of our food, we splashed out on a bottle of white wine at £23.

The waitress service was excellent, and we were soon tucking into our dishes. My salad had a honey and mustard dressing and bags of halloumi which went well with the peaches. Roy’s steak sandwich was a little difficult to eat due to its size, the design and size of the plate, the accompanying salad and onion rings. Intriguingly, it arrived with a small jug of superfluous gravy.

As lunch time wore on, it became apparent that this is obviously a popular place for a lunchtime beer with many people stopping for a pint at one of the stand-up barrels outside, but within the covered market. We later checked the website which said ‘we specialise in beautifully brewed classic real ale, including our company staple, Young’s Original’.

Whilst the bar is relatively small, and possible because of Covid-19 limiting seating, when we visited the downstairs loo, a much larger downstairs bar was revealed.

This is definitely somewhere we would return to if we were in the area.
