Pleasant ambience with service that is attentive but not intrusive. Plenty of delicious options and as servings are small, you can manage a pud! But what sets this restaurant apart is its stunning view of Tower Bridge.

Talk about style over substance. Service was slow and snooty. The set menu had obviously been sitting under heat lamps for hours. Meat crispy and covered in glutinous fat. Silly little dribbles of this and dabs of that. I left hungry, which is outrageous at...More

It depends what you are looking for. It is quite a formal grown up place. If your children would enjoy that and are into food, then fine. If they want a pizza and colouring sheets, it is not the right place.
