If we can get a window seat, the sixth floor view of the Thames, St. Paul's and the city is a real pleasure. However, after a few visits over the years, the menu mystifies us, the food we've ordered just hasn't been our taste (e.g.,...More

This "Kitchen" restaurant is one of the worst places we have ever visited in relation to customer service. Reviewers say "great view" etc but the point of the place is that it is a venue for FOOD! The Tate has utterly lost the plot and...More

The cafe is on 6th floor so has a good view over either the Switchroom (for the restaurant) or the Thames (for the bar). We had lunch in the restaurant - food was good but the service was poor. We waited more than 20 minutes...More

The view is really nice. The positives end there. The food is not even mediocre. The chips were undercooked. How can you screw up chips? The service is equally as bad. Every stage of it from getting seated to the bill took forever. Our drinks...More

Restaurant and bar at the Tate Modern. Only wanted a light lunch so we had the squash soup and the leek and potato hash. Both very tasty and satisfying, accompanied by a delicious Scottish Schiehallion beer. Staff very friendly and efficient

Even before the arrival of the instantly iconic Shard,
the riverside scene in Southwark had moved well beyond
any up-and-coming phase of development. For quite some
time, locals and out-of-towners alike have loved
browsing the boutiques of Bermondsey High Street,
foraging through the bounteous stalls at centuries old
foodie haven Borough Market, and flocking to the banks
of the Thames to enjoy some of Britain's biggest
