Pontis Polo Bar, Bishopsgate, Liverpool St

Visited: Sunday 8th February 2009

Interior: All Pontis ‘restaurants’ have a comforting feel of the 1970s about them. This one is a bit different – unreconstructed leatherette, tiled and fluorescent lit caffdom at its best. No natural light and a strong smell of deep fat frying means that the Polo bar feels nicely unironic and unselfaware. You order at the counter and sit in a cosy, if battered, booth.

Food: No granary bread here! I had 2 slices of ‘plastic’ whit e toast with mushrooms (probably tinned but perfectly edible) and a nice orange tea. My companion had the same with beans and black coffee and said ‘it was lovely’.
