The Factory House
Punch a time-card into a clocking in machine before your beer
Location: 10 Lime Street, EC3M 7AA
Description: As the website claims...'A refuge for the modern day industrialist.'
The Factory House is an all-day restaurant and wine bar will open in Leadenhall Market. The venue has taken its inspiration from Victorian industrialism, so there's lots of interesting and wierd and wonderful stuff on display!
The kitchen is overseen by Sean Davies, formerly executive chef of the Tate restaurants, and with a clocking-on system at the door, it's easy to get in the swing of things!
Worth a look in, if nothing more to try the 'oil proof punch'...cognac, port, fig liqueur and olive oil. Add in a side of blue cheese to nibble on...well what more is there to say.
