    Great location just next to tower bridge. The service was great and so was the food. There was a wonderful pianist with a beautiful voice.

    Absolutely incredible! Such a wonderful dining experience. Incredible value 3 courses and a cocktail for £20 and the food was incredible, couldn't fault it. The service was wonderful, so attentive, never an empty glass of water always there if you need them and it was my mum's birthday so we all got given a free glass of champagne and a pudding plate with happy birthday written on. They did everything they could to make us feel special and honestly was such a wonderful dining experience and a wonderful view of london bridge would recommend!!!!!!

    An early evening dinner booked during the London Restaurant Festival for 2 adults & our 10yr old, we found the setting to be excellent with wonderful views of the River & Tower Bridge. Great ambience with a resident pianist to add mood. The special menu had a restricted choice of 3 dishes per course and was disappointing relative to the offerings of other venues during the festival, with side dishes also being an extra charge. The starters [soup, mussels & Caesar Salad] were very good; the mains were ravioli {very small portion], coq au vin and a burger which were ok; the bitter chocolate tart was the meal highlight. The complementary glass of champagne was excellent.

    Dined on a Sunday lunchtime with a London Festival Menu, great value, good food and great service. We were able to sit outside, there are heaters out there and with a fantastic view of Tower Bridge, would be great at night. Tables a little close together and there was some live music inside which would be a little too loud for me. But well worth a visit.
