Seafood in The City

A City institution, Sweeting’s dates from 1889. It hasn’t changed much, with its small sit-down dining area, terrazzo floor and narrow counters, behind which stand waiters in white aprons. Dishes include sustainably sourced fish of all kinds (grilled, fried or poached), potted shrimps, eels and Sweeting’s famous fish pie (£16). Round it all off with a plate of steamed pudding.
