SquareMeal Review of The Saint

Situated amid the plate-glass financial monoliths of Paternoster Square, The Saint does an effective job as an energetic, box-ticking boozer for Friday-afternoon office fugitives – although it also pleases hungry, camera-toting tourists throughout the week (St Paul’s Cathedral is close by). The lunch menu canters through an assortment of dishes that are par for the course in these parts (sausages, mezze platters, Thai green chicken curry, wild-mushroom risotto, fish pie), while the pared-back evening menu is built around global nibbles and nachos. Drinkswise, The Saint boasts a better selection of whites and reds than many corporate wine bars in the neighbourhood, although there’s a paucity of interesting beers on tap and cocktails are mostly middle-of-the-road classics. Enjoy it all in a buzzy, post-industrial setting of bare brick walls, woodwork and ceiling girders.

First time visiting this place for a birthday lunch with a friend. The service was very friendly and quick. My friend ordered The Saint sandwich which was a large ciabatta cut into 4 portions and generously filled. I ordered the Thai Green Curry which was superb. We had a voucher for one free glass of wine and their website stated if it was your birthday they would send you an email voucher for a free bottle of Prosecco. My friend had the free glass of wine but she had not received the email for her birthday Prosecco so this was not given to her. We offered her Driving Licence as proof but this was rejected. However, the Manager was very friendly and explained without the voucher he could not give us the Prosecco. Overall I enjoyed the food and the atmosphere and would consider going there again.
