Great food, good service and we had a lovely evening. We really liked the little booths. Would certainly visit again and would be happy to recommend

A basement hideout, The Factory House offers quirky yet indulgent British dining. Nostalgic Victorian throwbacks see diners clock-in on a workhouse-style shift card, while a flash open kitchen reveals an Argentinian charcoal-fired grill.

An emporium of retro design, The Factory House dining room is filled with old station clocks, exposed pipes, mismatched upholstery and typewriter-print menus, from which guests can select much-loved British recipes. Sample steaks from the Josper grill, slow-cooked beef cheek pie with pork knuckle, oxtail and Stilton, or salted caramel and bourbon sundae.

Breakfasts offer a luxurious start to the day, with dishes like 125g sirloin steak with 2 fried free range eggs, or a full English breakfast. A knowledgably compiled drinks menu at Factory House restaurant includes a lengthy stock of easy drinking and vintages wines, beers, juices, cocktails and coffee.

Billed a ‘refuge for the modern day industrialist’, The Factory House in London is set beneath the majestic Leadenhall Market. Fenchurch Street Rail Station is a 4-minute walk away.

  • (((** 27 September 2015 by Peter Blanc from Colchester

    Food was good, service wasn't great - very slow for breakfast which left us having to rush to finish our food before we had to go.

    Excellent service and the food was plentiful and well cooked. Luke warm coffee to finish spoilt the experience somewhat !!

  • ((*** 14 April 2015 by Philip Rimmer from London Borough of Islington

    Service was a bit slow and side dishes arrived after we had almost finished our mains and required quite a bit of prompting to arrive

    Second time visiting in a week. Much better service than previous week. A little pricey for 6 Lunch was over £330 so wouldn't make it a regular haunt but ambience is good and food was very good.
