A centrepiece bar showcases freshly-muddled cocktails, while floor-to-ceiling glass envelops this spectacular dining space which offers 360-degree views of London.

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.

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.

    Fantastic evening out. Window seat for delicious cocktails; and perfect table for two for dinner. Bruno have us great advice on wines; and Lazlo helped steer us towards fabulous foods. Great service and terrific views justified the price.

    Delicious food from the pre-set menu and a fantastic view made this a lovely pre-birthday lunch for my Mum. However, there was too much contact in the days leading up to the booking (5 emails/texts in the 2 days prior to confirm) and during the meal, some staff were overly attentive and it felt like every 10mins someone was asking us whether the food was okay, would we like something else or introducing themselves to say just ask me if you need anything. Great service shouldn't interrupt the customers and this aspect - both before and during - could have been much better.
