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.

    We chose the Tasting Menu and paired wines which made for a cross of section of choice and taste. The English red from Sussex was especially interesting and the lobster course was superb, so much so that we asked for seconds! A fine dining experience not to be missed and one that can be recommended with ease.

    The location is definitely breathtaking and the ambience elegant and charming. If you order the "sourdough bread" expect a 20g, cherry size, casual bread roll at 175£ per kg, pity. Also I was surprised to to learn that one of the just 3 desserts on the menu was sold out.

    I had a great time at Aqua shard. While waiting for my table for brunch,I tried out a fantastic cocktail at the bar. All the staff were friendly and helpful and the food delicious. I had never had eggs Benedict before, but I will definitely again and the roast beef dinner was as good as you could get. It was a great birthday treat out for me and I look forward to going again and I haven't even mentioned the amazing views. 5* service all around.
