This All Bar One has an
excellent view of the Tower of London which is just two minutes
to the South. As you would expect from the
All Bar One brand there is an excellent range of beer and wine available.
Lunchtimes are focused on food and good service to the table, the evenings
towards a traditional up market city bar experience.
All Bar One's might not be your cup of tea, appealing especially to women,
but have not doubt that they are owned and run by one of the heritage names
in the British pub history, Mitchells & Butlers. Originally founded in
1898 they have had a chequered history of acquisitions and mergers, most
notable was the merger in 1961 with Bass, Ratcliff and Gretton Ltd and the
forming of Bass PLC which was renamed Six Continents PLC.
In October 2002 Six Continents announced the separation of the Hotels and
Retail divisions, creating Six Continents Retail. This has led to the rebirth
of the Mitchells & Butlers name as a new independent force in pubs, bars
and restaurants, brands including Vintage Inns, Ember Inns, Toby Carvery, O'Neill's,
All Bar One and Scream, as well as some well known heritage pubs within the City
of London; Williamsons Tavern, Ye olde Watling
