Finch's Review

Top 10 things you need to know about Finch's pub:
 
1) This City of London pub is probably the best place to observe the office natives in their natural habitat. Are you the gossiper? The noisemaker? The workaholic? You can see them all in action at Finch's.

2) The only endangered species you might see is the lonewolf. Finch's is loud and they gather in packs here. This isn't the place to go on a date.

3) The location couldn't be more central in the City, being situated on Finsbury Square near Moorgate. Even the clueless summer intern can find this pub and reserve some seats for you before the post-work rush.

4) The workaholic is well catered for here, even their salmon starter is a coffee-cured. Apart from the handy injection of caffeine, it's genuinely a great match, the coffee taste bringing out even more freshness from the fish.

5) The meticulous meeting scheduler would probably opt for a better cut of meat than the hanger steak offered here for their business meeting. However, if you give it a chance and order it medium rare, it will not disappoint; it has a rich beefy flavour and a superbly tender texture.

6) People tend to avoid the chatterbox like the plague; who wants to be caught up in an hour-long discussion about their bowel problems? Your saviour might just be the winter berry crumble, because there is so much to divert attention, "Oh, is that raspberry? Oh, there are blackberries! Could that be a fig?" It makes a plain Jane apple crumble decidedly last century.

7) Luckily for the delegator in the office, the beverage selection here is plentiful. Managing to get away with doing little work in the office, you need to hand out some bribes to your minions. From Veuve Cliquot to Young's Cask Ales, there are drinks to fit any budget.

8) My only disappointment was when I quizzed the staff about the promised (on their website) secret wine cellar holding special vintages: they were unaware of such wine lover's paradise.

9) With large plasmas showing exciting sporting events like the Six Nations rugby, this is the ideal place to drown out the noisemaker in the office. You know the one who always talks loudly on his mobile?

10) Remember to book early to get the best vantage point if you enjoy people watching as much as I did.
