Restaurants in Monument
A guide to Monument and restaurants around Monument
On September 2nd, 1666, Thomas Farrinor, baker to King Charles II of England, neglected to turn off his oven. Soon his house in Pudding Lane was in flames after the oven ignited some nearby firewood. Farrinor, along with his wife and daughter, and one servant, luckily escaped, but the baker's maid paid dearly for his carelessness, becoming the Great Fire of London's first victim.
The fire went on to destroy about four-fifths of the city, but amazingly, it claimed only 16 lives and may actually have saved countless more. After 5th September, the Black Plague, which had ravished London since 1664, abruptly declined, probably because so few of the rats that helped to transmit the disease escaped the flames.
The Monument tower was built a few years later around the corner from Pudding Lane marking the infamous spot and here endeth the history lesson.Whether you want to climb the steps within the Monument for the great view, or you work in or around Monument tube station, LondonEats.com has sniffed out every restaurant, bar, cafe, pub and sandwich shop in the area.
