Square Meal Review of The Drift ?

If visual clutter, cocktails, cacophony and clattery acoustics are your idea of how to unwind in the City, drift into this boozy cauldron around 7pm as the post-work crescendo hits a high – although you'll need to shout your order for an adequate pineapple and cardamom margarita or a low-cal skinny cucumber and passion fruit martini. A good selection of wines runs from numerous selections by the glass (including Prosecco at £5.95) to bottles of vintage Puligny-Montrachet for flush speculators.
