Visitors to the Square Mile get new hotel

THOSE looking for a place to rest their head within spitting distance of the City’s greatest landmarks have a new option, after The D&D Group opened its first hotel in the Square Mile yesterday between Moorgate and Liverpool Street. The New South Place Hotel is pitching itself as a culinary destination, saying it will place greater emphasis on catering than conventional hotels, with three bars and two restaurants. One of the restaurants, Angler, will serve British seafood overseen by Tony Fleming, the former executive chef at One Aldwych.
