The Saint reviews

By Mike D.

Very friendly, busy bar, great for after-work drinks during the week. They do really good platters of food, which are just the thing if you've got a big group of you. I've been here lots of times, including for leaving drinks, and have always enjoyed the place. It gets pretty busy and can be a bit noisy, but this adds to the atmosphere The staff, including Sylva the manager, are helpful and very friendly. I would not hesitate to recommend this place for enjoyable evening drinks. (Last time I was there was in mid-November 2015, on a Thursday evening)

The Saint is an amazing venue to hold your wedding reception! We recently held our wedding reception at The Saint in Paternoster Square and were extremely satisfied with the venue and their staff. The venue is located in a romantic spot, just off St Paul’s Cathedral in Paternoster Square that is an ideal venue for people looking for a wedding reception with a view of a London landmark; St.Pauls looks stunning at night! Our wedding held around 50 guests, and The Saint was a perfect place for us to share our special day with family and friends. The Saint’s outside area was a great place to hold a drinks reception as our guests arrived and also provided a quieter place to relax throughout the evening. We were impressed by the professionalism of The Saint’s management team, run by Sylva, in organising the venue, setting it up and running the reception on the night. The ambience of The Saint was perfect, with the team dressing the restaurant up with white linen and beautiful flowers lining all the tables. Sylva organised the hire of linen and the flowers so we didn't have to. There was also a great area for our band to be positioned. The dinner they provided was exceptional, with great variety to suit all our guests, including vegetarians and vegans; Veal with chocolate and chilli sauce was incredible and really impressed our guests! Sylva, a big thank you to you and your team for all your help, you made the lead up to the wedding stress free and made our day even more special by how beautifully you set up the venue and how smoothly you ran the evening. You ensured we had the perfect wedding reception!

I'm lucky enough for this to be my local at work, fantastic bar. Great Guinness (unusual for a bar), staff are all very friendly, great service. Lunchtime food is great, extensive menu and very good quality, and the Bloody Mary's are fantastic too! Lively in the evenings, esp Thursday and Friday with good crowd and good tunes. Pay a visit, you won't be disappointed!

A wonderful bar in one of the most beautiful patches of London, where the fast-paced hustle and bustle of city life is brought into contrast by probably the greatest building in London: St. Paul's Cathedral.Extremely friendly and welcoming bar staff, good service, great food and a lively atmosphere whether you're inside or in the outdoor seating area. Can't recommend highly enough!Mo

A quintessential and unmissable London attraction.With the backdrop of london's Grandest cathedral this establishment should be overshadowed. Though the atmosphere and friendly environment raises the profile of this watering hole to the Shakespeares Globe of Saint Pauls. "Cry 'Havoc!', and let slip the glass and pour".

A Gem in Paternoster Square, forget the Cathedral this is where you go to drink the blood of our Christ. Gward

Working close to The Saint I've been here a couple of times for after work drinks and we always have a good time.

I've had lunch here once and the service and food are both very good with a good selection on the menu and there is a large covered dining/drinking area outside the front.

Due to its location The Saint doesn't open on the weekend however you can book it for a private party on the weekend if you can meet a minimum bar spend.

One of my friends did this and we had a fantastic night. About 60 of us easily met the minimum spend which included platters from the menu.

Highly recommended.

The Saint has welcomed its location beside St Pauls with open arms.

The Venue
Perfectly situated within spitting distance of the London Stock Exchange building and slap bang in the middle of the new Paternoster Square development with views over St Paul’s Cathedral, The Saint has struck gold as far as location goes. A lovely al fresco area with some well placed greenery and generous up market wooden dining tables is complemented by a range of modern eclectic furniture contemporary furnishing inside including beige leather seats and a couple of individual personalized areas. Large open paned windows ensure the view is pretty looking out as much as looking in.

The Atmosphere
With the neighboring Stock Exchange be prepared to meet some interesting characters from the trading floor to the 26th floor and beyond. There is a certain vibe and energy particularly when the evening kicks off and the City boys and local workers literally kick back from a hard day behind the desk.

The Food
There’s a menu to suit every diners mood and wallet with simple, modern dishes from light bites to platters ideal for sharing. The Cajun chicken nachos are lightly dusted while the Saint fish pie has a creamy and thick layer of potato. The mash simply falls into the fish and combines well to deliver a hearty classic British dish.

There are a couple of platters that will have you easily being tempted in. The Saint platter at around £16 for two people is good value with dishes featuring chunky and wholesome pork and paprika meatballs, soft and fleshy tiger prawn skewers with a hint of garlic and spicy ketchup that will cut through any dish. However if you arrive after 9.30 then you will have to go hungry as this is the latest time that you will be able to have to opportunity to order food at The Saint.

The Drink
Carefully sourced liqueur is the order of the day as The Saint brings in the cold months with wines and spirits that suit the time of the year. For example the new Sandeman Ports have been introduced for a winter warmer. Try a glass of chilled 10 year old Tawny which is an ideal accompaniment with one of their British cheeses. There is also a good selection of wines by the glass featuring a full bodied Cotes du Rhone 2005/06 and a crisp and medium dry Californian Pinot Grigio 2005/06. The beer range is eclectic and features the premium imported German beer Warsteiner beer which is refreshing.

The Last Word
This is more of a place to chill out and kick off your shoes than a real dining experience but nevertheless is worth a sneaky peek.
