Square Meal Review of Sweetings ?

Sweetings has endured since Victorian times by resolutely resisting the whims of fashion, so it’s no surprise that this venerable City institution also doubles as a film and TV location (outside its restricted opening hours). The sepia-tinted interior is simplicity itself, the no-bookings policy remains intact, and there are few concessions to modern times when it comes to the food. Don’t come here expecting meat or anything veggie – the menu is pure fish, and proudly so. Set things rolling with whitebait, potted shrimps, salmon fishcakes and suchlike, then simply decide whether you want your fish steamed, grilled or fried (staff are happy to advise). For afters, go for steamed syrup pudding or an old-fashioned savoury. Be warned that there’s nothing nostalgic about the bill, especially if you pick nobler species such as turbot – although happily they now take cards.
