The Place BelowShielded from the rampant capitalism and relentless wheeling and dealing above ground in the City, The Place Below is a calm haven below the streets. The still surroundings of the Norman crypt of St Mary-le-Bow Church and a healthier-than-thou menu are a wholesome antidote to the trials of life.

At breakfast time pick from juicy pastries, crunchy muesli or macro-biotic yogurt. Come lunchtime there's a fantastic selection of sandwiches with inventive fillings. Banish all your unhealthy demons with the health bowl - a surprisingly tasty medley of brown rice, lentils and veg, doused in sesame and ginger dressing. Discounts are available for lunching outside busy periods.
