With exquisite London views and a sleek interior, Blueprint Café is in an elevated position above the Design Museum. Offering a picturesque riverside spot for a relaxed meal, Blueprint Café London benefits from the striking backdrop of Tower Bridge and Docklands, visible from its striking glazed balcony.

Blending fresh flavours from Scotland to Europe, the superb seasonal menu incorporates these international influences to offer deliciously simple cuisine including game dishes like rump of venison with pickled prunes, cranberries and mash to lighter dishes like skate with capers and black butter. The divine sweets on the dessert list include treats like hazelnut meringue with blackcurrants and quince ice cream or sticky toffee pudding with brown bread ice cream.

The extensive wine list at Blueprint Café Shad Thames features a blend of European wines and New World bottles, with a number of options by the glass. London Bridge Tube Station is within easy reach.

    Food was excellent - even a usually hard to please Spanish amateur food critic boyfriend was impressed. Beautifully cooked and presented fish. We ate at 10pm and it was a bit quiet, which meant it was not as atmospheric as I expected, and the decor is showing signs of wear and could be refreshed, but the service was friendly and attentive and for the price we could not fault it. Maybe a more reasonably priced selection of wines would have been good. Our bill was £75 in total for 2 courses each, a beer each, and one lovely pudding to share. Overall recommended.

    Nice restaurants with great views. The smoked salmon starter was a bit plain and underwhelming but the main course of haddock was excellent. The service was good if a bit slow at times. Overall a good choice in the Shad Thames area.
