Sandwiched between the very English icons Old Bailey and St Paul's Cathedral, Jamie's Italian Ludgate Hill is a slice of rustic Mediterranean. As well as hosting small groups on an ad-hoc basis, the laidback main space is available for exclusive hire. Events can start with a prosecco reception on arrival, or take guests direct to the cocktail bar. Set menus are available at three price points. In keeping with the homely surroundings, starters include antipasti sharing planks, and could be followed by Italian steak frites or the fish of the day. Look out for vin santo tiramisu or organic yoghurt pannacotta to finish. Canapé menus are tailored to the requirements of individual groups, but might include mini cups of fragrant seasonal risotto.
