The Tokenhouse

4 Moorgate , London, EC2R 6DA

SquareMeal Review of The Tokenhouse

One of the City’s bigger watering holes (formerly Bluu) has had a rethink and a re-launch under the Fuller’s banner. The building was once used as a repository for farthing coins before they were put into circulation, hence the post-industrial ‘counting house-chic’ theme; there’s also a separate loungey bar that correctly boasts ‘comfy seating’. Opening early on weekday mornings, it offers all-day eats for City suits: breakfast brings eggs florentine, porridge and full English platefuls, while lunch offers mussels, langoustine risotto, warm coronation chicken salad and sarnies, backed by a wine list that ranges from cheap red rinses to a patrician Côte Rôtie (£82.50). Come evening, enjoy small plates, sharing platters and cocktails – mojitos and oriental martinis (gin, lychee and cranberry) don’t exactly push any envelopes, and prices (from £8.50) may seem high for what is essentially an appealingly tarted-up pub.
