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.

    We had a fantastic time at the Shard for our Brunch. The food was amazing would recommend the Salmon starter as this was amazing but so was all the food. We upgraded to the Champagne Brunch which was amazing. I would recommend this experiance to everyone. The view, staff, food and facilities were all excellent.

    Had 3 course breakfast here just before Christmas. Had a superb time. The location is breath taking. The tables arranged to take advantage of the views from the 31st floor. My Eggs Benedict was sublime. Some of the best I've ever had. Not quite as impressed with the Full English 2nd course. Beans came out looking a little dry but the quality of the ingredients was excellent. Service was prompt but not intrusive. Would definitely go back and would be excited about it. Apparently there is a dress code which allows jeans but not shorts or trainers.

    Disappointing start. Arrived 5mins before 10:30 brunch start and doorman on ground floor almost didn’t let us in from the cold and wind... muttering to come back in 5 mins... get a grip. Upstairs no better, asked to wait for a few mins then moved from area to area (not very welcoming at all, we seemed quite the inconvenience) ordered 2 glasses of champagne and an apple juice, taken to our table and the drinks order just forgotten about. Could see our orders left on the side for 5 mins whilst waiting staff disappeared for a cigarette or something. Food ok, but disappointing experience and very £££ for the privilege. Won’t do it again.
