Bar and restaurant operator Novus has re-opened the Sterling, its City of London site at the base of the Gherkin.

The Sterling, which opened in 2005, has space for more than 160 covers inside with a further 200 seats available outside on terrace tables.

The £200k investment has seen both bars at the Sterling refurbished, as well as the introduction of an open kitchen to coincide with a new summer menu, which includes a range of seasonal options including a summer hamper containing picnic style dishes.
