21 St Swithin's Lane, City, EC4N 7AD
The Sign of the Don, the younger sibling of the Don Restaurant is located on the former site of the Sandeman Port Company. The bar, bistro and private dining rooms, with a floor map of the City of London in 1789, a warren of tunnels and a wine cellar that used to be a secret passage to the Thames, pay tribute to the site where Sandeman bottled its vintages for over two centuries.

The Sign of the Don has succeeded in preserving elements of the building's rich past, and the 'sign' refers to a colourful glass image of the Don in his famous cape, which now hangs outside 21 St Swithin's Lane. This informal establishment prides itself on offering good value for money without compromising on quality, and diners can sample the best of British produce, with a nod to the site's Iberian heritage, as well as an array of well-priced world wines.

Breakfast, lunch, bar snacks and dinner are available, and there is a host of menus to choose from - popular starters
include octopus and chorizo salad and Mrs Sandeman's famous croquetas, while the Gloucester Old Spot pork cutlet and crackling or grilled cod with crayfish sauce guaranteed to please.

Of course, this can all be enjoyed while taking in the architectural delights of a fabulously restored historic building
