Restaurant description

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.

    Staff were very welcoming, polite & attentive. We were seated immediately even though we were a little early. Food & wine were very nice.

    I went to The Brasserie at the Tower Hotel with my husband for an afternoon tea. We really enjoyed the variety of food and the amazing view!

    We were at the Brasserie for afternoon tea. Very nice table at the window overlooking Tower Bridge. Staff very attentive and pleasant. Disappointed in the sandwiches, very meagre. Scones and tiny pastries were good, and unlimited Prosecco for £5 was a bargain. However, tea consisted of a pot of hot water and a "posh" tea-bag, which did make two cups of very nice tea. We asked for another tea-bag and fresh hot water and were charged £2.95 for the tea-bag, which struck us as petty.
