Squaremeal Review of Number 25 ?

Timeless in its simplicity, Number 25 is the very model of a quintessential City wine bar on a modest scale, with friendly staff attending to the unobtrusive, suited professionals who claim stools at the granite-topped octagonal bar or take their places at high chairs by the window. Drinks are provided by the admirable Jamies wine list, which is laid out with exemplary clarity & supplied with helpful tasting notes. To accompany your chosen glass or bottle, there’s a choice of wraps, club sandwiches & the like – roast beef & horseradish, for instance – as well as sharing boards & a handful of no-frills mains such as prawn & smoked salmon salad. The entire bar is also available for private hire.

I thought my friend had found a useful wine bar in the City for a catch up – good wine list and not too noisy. However, that was until we spotted a mouse running around the bar. We alerted the manager who, to be honest, didn't seem unduly concerned and said he'd contact pest control in the morning. The mouse kept coming into the bar and running around all evening. We suggested to the manager that the last round of drinks be complimentary since we'd had to witness his pest problem all evening. He...
