Thoroughly enjoyed the market place lunch with a glass of bellini. As there were six of us it was wonderful to be shown into one of the private dining rooms and made the experience that much more memorable. Felt special and the service was excellent.

Premium produce is sourced from across the UK to make up the aqua shard menu, like meat from the celebrated Ginger Pig butchers, 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.

    The views were great , the way we were seated so all in the party could appreciate the view was good. Choice from the set menu was interesting and excellent value for money . The fish, roasted hake was excellent . All in the party enjoyed the food. The staff were very attentive to start with ,a slight criticism is that once the main course had been served the service was a bit slow, but this did not distract from a very enjoyable experience

    We were celebrating our wedding anniversary and the person showing us to the table acknowledged this - we were very impressed. We asked for a nice table and got an excellent table overlooking Tower Bridge. Service and food were excellent. The pork was amazing. Dessert was swiftly followed with a slice of cake decorated with a “Happy Anniversary” chocolate “plaque”. A truly lovely touch to what was an excellent experience.

    I was delighted to have been given a table by the window, especially as this cannot be guaranteed, and the service was excellent . I was a little disappointed with my choice from the menu. My starter of chicken terrine was not very tasty and the Parma ham which encased it was stringy. The main course of roast chicken was ok but nothing exceptional. However my cheesecake dessert was very good and my daughter enjoyed her meal of tuna, fish and cheese. I’m not sure I felt it was good value for money and the wine was overpriced but overall it was a lovely experience

    I had a very enjoyable Sunday brunch. My wife had booked this as treat on my 60th Birthday and I wasn't disappointed. The setting is fantastic with one of the best views across London and the staff and food was first rate. Extra special credit should be given to the staff as they remember it was my birthday and gave us a small cake to celebrate without being asked.
