Shooting Star, Bishopsgate
Nice atmosphere, very quick, polite and friendly service, and a good range of well-kept Fullers ales. The Discovery was a very quaffable pint for a summer evening. We didn't try the food, but the selection on offer looked good.
I'd definitely rate this higher than two pints, compared to many of the other pubs in the area, where the service especially can be dreadful. This pub might well become a more regular watering hole.
125-129 Middlesex Street, Bishopsgate, London, E1 7JF
Leave Liverpool Street Station by the Bishopsgate exit, cross Bishopsgate, turn left then immediately turn right down Middlesex Street at the traffic lights. Go straight down and you'll see the pub just in front of you on the corner on the right.
