Located at the intersection of Chancery Lane, The Last Judgment is the kind of establishment that doesn’t just join the London pub scene; it redefines it with style and substance.
Situated in the heart of ‘legal London’ and with a former life as the Union Bank headquarters, this place comes with some serious historical weight. But it’s no dusty relic; instead, it seamlessly marries its illustrious past with a refreshingly modern twist.
Towering ceilings adorned with intricate architectural details, the kind of velvet drapery that invites you to linger a little longer – it’s like stepping into a time machine, albeit one decked out with burnt orange banquettes and velvet-covered armchairs.
The Last Judgment boasts Grade II listed status, and the original Union Bank scroll above the entrance is a little nod to its storied past. Inside, the bar area is a masterpiece, with slender columns, an ochre-painted ceiling that’s a work of art itself, and large chandeliers.
But let’s talk about what really matters: the ‘Steak & Sole’ menu. Dry-aged grass-fed beef steaks and freshly caught Cornish day boat sole fillets are the stars of the culinary show here. Sides? They’ve got ’em in spades, from the delightfully crispy ‘blooming onion’ to the comfort-food nirvana of mac and cheese and filthy fries.
The team at The Last Judgment has a mission: creating unforgettable social experiences. That translates to a casual fine dining experience that’s all about passion and precision. And of course, a drinks menu which spans draft beers, bespoke cocktails, and fine wines.
In the heart of ‘legal London,’ The Last Judgment is a living, breathing tribute to the city’s rich history, infused with a contemporary vibe that’s pure, unadulterated fun. So whether you’re after a memorable meal or just a night out with friends, The Last Judgment is where you’ll find it.
