Davy's The Factory House is perfect for a business lunch or meeting, located down Lime Street in the epicentre of London’s financial and insurance brokerage district. Private booths at this lavishly appointed, Victorian-era London wine bar have screens that can be attached to your laptop or mobile device for sterling presentations while enjoying fine British and European cuisine and a bottle or two picked from Davy’s incomparable cellar selection.
The legend goes that Lime Street was where Charles Dickens’ Ebeneezer Scrooge
took up residence. The fictional home of the cold-hearted miser is gone, replaced by
the very real (though still rather steely), inside-out Lloyd’s building, the site of
the world’s largest insurance market. This is to say, Lime street is the throbbing heart
of London’s financial district, which makes Davy's The Factory House the perfect
place for brokers and business people to meet over lunch and butter each other up
with fine wine – and hot buttered potatoes, perhaps. Thankfully, Davy's The Factory
House’s Lime Street premises haven’t bowed to the modern, Bowellist
architecture of Lime Street’s Lloyd’s. No, true to the Davy’s wine bar experience,
Davy's The Factory House have preserved some of the Victorian charm that used to
subsist in the area – warm and wood-panelled, with wraparound banquette seating
across from elegant dining chairs and tables. It’s more modern than many of Davy’s
wine bars and restaurants, but that befits a place that means business.
Davy's The Factory House’s menu features Davy’s signature grilled dishes, grass-fed steak selected and aged by David Russell, a master butcher with a Royal Warrant. Factory House favourites include the Factory House steak burger, cooked to your liking, with a pulled short rib of beef and Ogleshield cheese, while the health-conscious are advised to turn to the superfood salad, with halloumi, edamame, quinoa, avocado, broccoli, cucumber, beetroot, carrot, celery, spinach and mixed leaves. A range of beautiful English cheeses and classic British desserts such as the Eton Mess are available to finish. Davy’s The Factory House’s wine list is equally impeccable. A number of Davy’s house wines are pitted against an incredible selection of old- and new-world vintages, while cocktail hour promises classics and bespoke creations alike. Davy's The Factory House down Lime Street is yet another welcome addition to Davy’s London wine bar and restaurant family.
I have been to this place loads of times and am never let down; you know exactly what you are going to get. The steak is good and the service is always attentive.
excellent food especially the cheese, good selection of wines and a welcoming atmosphere. A long leisurely lunch and no pressure to leave! We will return soon
Good food & ambience. Service could have been quicker but was satisfactory. Would recommend for a burger lunch & fish special on a Friday. Convenient location next to Lloyd's building.
Service was a bit slow but they were very apologetic and came over to apologise and offered a discount. However, it was a very good breakfast.
Service incredibly slow. Second time we have been here with the same slow service. Had to wait 50 mins for our food.
