Lunch with a friend. We've been before and as usual the food was of a high standard. Service friendly and efficient without being overbearing. Good value for money

Taking its name from a poem by Lewis Carroll, The Walrus and The Carpenter is located close to the Monument commemorating the Great Fire of London. A traditional London pub, it boasts a large U-shaped bar, outdoor seating for al fresco summer dining, and serves a broad menu of well-loved British dishes.

With Nicholson’s pubs first established in 1873, the fleet has become synonymous with warm hospitality, heart pub food and a speciality stock of ales. Constantly featuring recipes are bolstered by a seasonally-changing range of specials on the Nicholson’s menu, with favourites including home-breaded chicken Kiev, or a sharing cottage pie. Also enjoy old-school desserts and nourishing breakfasts.

At the Nicholson’s bar, expect to find 25 guest ales changing with the seasons, a resident cask master, and carefully-matched ale and food pairing suggestions. Compiled with equal care, The Walrus and The Carpenter drinks list features easy drinking wines, artisan soft drinks and classic cocktail mixes.

The Walrus and The Carpenter in Monument is just a 2-minute walk from Monument Tube Station.

    The food was excellent - and really good value for money. Service was attentive without being pushy.

    Based upon my experience of very enjoyable lunches (as a member of a small group) in the restaurant twice during the past year, I booked a table for three for lunch on Tues 9th August. The menu offers a wide choice of starters, main dishes and desserts, not to mention the sharing platters and the speciality dishes, all of which are very well prepared and presented. On this occasion we all chose the special burger recommendation and were very pleased with this choice. There is a good choice of beers, wines and other drinks available. Being on the first floor, the dining room, which has its own bar and a large number of tables, has many large windows and is thus light and airy. The table at the far end overlooks the main road and also has a direct view of The Monument. The service is good, with cheerful and attentive waitresses/servers. This restaurant is popular and caters for pre-booked business lunches, as well as for the casual visitors/tourists. It has a good ambiance. On the ground floor is the pub, which is also very popular and crowded, for informal/casual drinks and meals. Before I retired I used to frequent the bar as a City businessman with colleagues at lunchtime or in the evening after work. By the way, it is in a prime position for The London Marathon, as it is alongside Lower Thames Street, part of the route. In short, I recommend The Walrus & the Carpenter.
