The Chamberlain Hotel, Tower Hill
Service was quick and professional and whilst not quite at the “personal” level of your favourite local the Italian barmaid and Polish bar manager were more than happy to pass the time of day with us as they were serving.
The Thursday evening that we visit was pretty quiet and it may be that casual drinkers in the area seek out the more traditional looking pubs of which there are many in the Minories so for those wanting a quieter locale to enjoy their after-work beer, the Chamberlain might well be the place.
