Best city bike brands in the UK

My friend is looking for a bike in the city. I'm based in the US and whenever a beginner asks me for advice regarding city specific bikes, I usually point them to public bikes (PUBLIC® Bikes Official Site. Shop bikes, gear, and accessories). I just realized that public is a US based brand, and it's not available in the UK.

Do you guys have any brand you would recommend similar to public bikes? Any recommendations are welcome. The bike should be properly built with decent components (not a department store bike). It should have at least a few speeds, fenders, maybe rack mounts. I would prefer brands with show rooms in the London area. I'm not a huge fan of low-end disc brakes, so I'd prefer something with a rim brake.

Otherwise, I would recommend something like the alibi sport eq from specialized. For $600 it seems to be a pretty good bike in the city.
