Restaurant description

Following a recent redesign, Aqua Shard’s new look restaurant is ready to welcome its first guests. Discover contemporary British menus, using the finest seasonal ingredients within western Europe’s tallest building. This spectacular dining space has floor-to-ceiling glass windows offering 360-degree views of London.

Premium produce is sourced from across the UK to make up the Aqua Shard menu, fish from south-west-coast day boats, and herbs and leaves from farms in nearby Bermondsey. Luxurious flavours include Longhorn dry-aged beef sirloin with roasted bone marrow, or roasted halibut with cockles and grilled langoustines.

Nestled within Aqua Shard in London, a 3-storey atrium bar offers a lengthy drinks list, and a host of enticing signature cocktails. Sample the almondy Battenberg martini, or an indulgent Devonshire cream cup.

Enjoy London's ultimate treat in the aptly-named ‘Tea Wing’: Aqua Shard’s contemporary British afternoon tea. Dine in the stunning triple-height glass atrium at this restaurant in The Shard, and sample a selection of sumptuous finger sandwiches, freshly-baked scones served with Jersey clotted cream and homemade jams, and innovative cakes and sweet treats.

Aqua Shard restaurant also offers a mouth-watering breakfast menu, spanning from wholesome fruit, grain and seed-based dishes, through to a gourmet full English.

Found on the 31st floor, Aqua Shard restaurant offers highly acclaimed dining within one of London’s most iconic landmarks. London Bridge stations are a 2-minute walk away.

    The presentation of the first course was not of a classic restaurant. The chicken main was tasteless. The dessert was just okay.

    Not very friendly. I felt we were rushed to eat to vacate the table. Bad experience.

    The restaurant is beautiful and a nice experience. It was my birthday and I asked to sit next to the window, I was told no they were booked up despite several people leaving at once. My partners food arrived with a long dark hair in it, they took the food away with my lunch too so we could eat together when the food was returned mine was cold, it appeared to be the same lunch. They then took our food away for the 2nd time. The manager gave us a small discount off of the lunch which totalled £10 to say sorry, however, I did not feel this was reflective of the disappointment we felt particularly as it was my birthday. Such a shame, I think the very least could have been a drink each to say sorry or to have taken the main course off of the bill.
