A laidback riverfront bar and eatery overlooking the London neighbourhood. Pay homage to one of the world's most spectacular skylines. From a busy lunch setting all the way through to a chilled sunset, have cocktails and dine on the heated terrace with Tower Bridge in the foreground, this is the essential way to "Look at London".

Food and drink is globally purveyed and freshly delivered into the Vicinity to create an ever changing menu which serves the very best from world classics to street food inspired plates, including a range of pizzas, sandwiches, salads and platters, accompanied by a selection of cocktails, grand Champagnes (some by the glass), fine ales, steins and elegant wines. With a drink in hand gaze out on the sights of London, if you're lucky you can grab a seat next to a warming and flickering fire pit.

The Vicinity bar offers a great range of beers, an exciting cocktail list with classics and quirks, and a perfectly formed wine and spirit list.

On the water’s edge at St Katharine Dock, Vicinity in London is great for exploring the city’s historical landmarks. Tower Hill Tube Station is around a 10-minute walk away.

    We had the afternoon tea, we were seated promptly and the waitress confirmed what we wanted and bought the hot water for our tea fairly quickly but we had to wait for the teabags. We then finally received our sandwiches and cakes 50 minutes after we had sat down. We understand the delay was due to the gluten free option one of our party had requested. The food was delicious though. We had to ask for more hot water also. The waitress was very helpful when dealing with us but she was difficult to find on occasion. She did remove the service charge from our bill as a gesture of goodwill which we did appreciate and we did leave her a tip. The manager (?) did come over and apologise for the delay as we were leaving which we also appreciated and he did explained that it was due to a new till being installed.

    The environment leading to the hotel is as beautiful, we walked down to the restaurant viewing the awesome lit tower bridge , on entering the hotel we asked if we could go to the Xi bar to have drinks and this was granted , the ambiance was excellent the view in the bar were excellent the service was just marvellous after we had a bottle of wine (reasonable pricing) we headed for our dinner it was delicious from starter to dessert. We did not order dessert because we were all so full up , however I had told our waitress that it was my sisters birthday and as an unexpected surprise the staff brought us a cake with a candle they staff was so friendly and professional I couldn’t have asked for a better place to eat everything was just ?? perfect . thank you so much I hope you give your staff good salaries !!
