The Sterling

A vast terrace on the traffic-free piazza at the foot of the Gherkin is the not-so-secret weapon toted by this slick Lewis & Clarke ‘gastro bar’.

In fine weather, it turns into one of the most coveted spots for alfresco drinking in the heart of the City. Like its siblings in the chain, The Sterling makes much of its funky decor, easy atmosphere & all-purpose food. Sharing platters & ’swimmers’ (daily fish specials) are a feature at lunchtime, along with diverse dishes such as butternut squash & goats’ cheese raviolo, crab cakes with lemongrass & chilli oil, & Norfolk pork belly with glazed baby carrots & roasted beets. From 4pm, expect nibbles, sharing plates and platters for groups

In the evening the Sterling effortlessly transforms into a lively city bar, ideal for meeting friends for a drink or the office party where you can hire areas for free, the sales and events team make holding any event and entertaining guests as seamless as it can be, nothing is too small or large for our team.
