The Fable


Nestled conveniently between Chancery Lane and St. Paul's stations is The Fable, a quite extraordinary restaurant and bar that draws inspiration from all things mystic and magical.

The Fable also features a 'centrepiece' bar along with several mixology tables. 

An innovative food and cocktail menu will be available throughout the day which will cater for both guests looking for a light snack and visitors looking to settle down to something a bit more indulgent. With quirky functions like mixology masterclasses and late-night supper clubs, The Fable is also perfect for hosting all manner of events, customised experiences and pop-ups. An ideal candidate for after work drinks, visiting for an indulgent meal or visiting for a quirky function alike, The Fable is a true central London gem waiting to be tried out.
