This is an excellent choice for a restaurant with a river view. The windows are floor-to-ceiling and you can see Tower Bridge in one direction, Canary Wharf in the other. The room is airy and smart, the staff are welcoming and on the ball, and the food has always been very good every time I have visited. Highly recommended.

I would like to take this opportunity to say a huge thank you to everyone to the restaurant for providing such a fantastic service and wonderful experience for our event. The 3 course menu was served according to the planned time and was delicately presented. The Superb view and beautiful set ups has also contributed massively in creating a memorable experience!

It is a great location to host a large event. The Beef Wellington was truly excellent as were the staff who could not have done more to make the evening a success. Thank you, job well done.

We got married here last year and in the rooms upstairs in partnership with the Design Museum. Absolutely magical! Returned yesterday for our 1st anniversary for a surprise lunch organised by my lovely husband and it brought all the memories flooding back - including how great the food and staff are! Thank you for treating us so warmly!

Can't compliment the Restaurant and Staff enough for making our day so amazing. They did everything right and made sure all our needs were catered for - perfect location for a perfect day. Happily recommend to anyone this as use as a wedding reception and their event manager Tania was brilliant.
