Last reviewed in November 2016 as average, and nothing has changed. The place itself has a certain presence about it. An 18th Century warehouse situated on the docks of St. Katherine in London but again the food didn't impress me. This time I ate in the Grill restaurant on the top floor rather than the Pizzeria restaurant. I ordered fish... More

Mother's Day meal disappointment. Booked this place as setting is lovely. Food so overpriced and so bad. Should be 2 meals for a tenner! As quality was so below pub standard. Glad I didn't order the £17 roast dinner as that looked appalling. We paid £4 for about 7 chips in a cup and fish and chips was over £15!!... More

Saturday night early evening. Very busy and very expensive. Only popped into for a quick drink. Did what we needed would not rush back. Lots of empty glasses and looked quite messy if not a little dirty.

Been here several times. An amazing venue in such a great location. The pub is lovely with great staff. However, the toilets were disgusting. 2 were out of order, 1 had a lock that didn't work, at least 6 were filthy, 1 had no seat, which left 1 decent cubicle. Which we all queued to use. That is unacceptable.

Managed to get in here without a reservation on a Saturday night. Glad we did it was fantastic. I had the salmon fillet which was superb and well cooked. The service is included into the bill but you can ask for it to be removed. But no reason to as the staff were fantastic, Many thanks.

Visited this establishment on Sunday evening, second floor grill, not busy, 12 percent charge for nonexistent service, outrageousness!

Came here for a couple of beers before a dinner at the Tower Hotel. It's massive! Busy though and with staff who work hard enough to keep waiting times down to a minimum. The beers weren't bad and the usual selection of lagers and gin. Plus of course the legendary Dickens Cider. Make sure you get your wife/girlfriend to ask... More
