Upstairs at Smiths is definitely company credit card territory. But for everyone lower down the corporate ladder, the café downstairs is a great spot for a casual bite. The menu’s short, simple, and it’s big on fried stuff, sandwiches, burgers and meat. All of which is unsurprising, given that it’s opposite London’s most famous meat market. And if there’s a few of you, the tables are big enough that you can seat the whole team, and still strategically place yourself far enough away from anyone you don’t like. Bonus.
