Beautiful historical pub in an incredible location. Sunday roast was very good and service was personal.

    Great location. We all had Sunday Roast. It was well cooked and well prepared. The service was a bit slow.

    Salmon was lovely thoroughly enjoyed. But no potato options aside from chips. I could have done with some type of carb to go with it. My son's burger was over cooked and dry. Food in general was overpriced for standard pub grub that you can get in discount pub chains. I am guessing that its this way because history and location.

    The booking process was easy and the restaurant was expecting us. The service was prompt and efficient and the food was great. All-together a wonderful experience.

    Good service, good food, good place

    Attractive location, service was OK, food was quite good except desserts which were expensive for what they were. My Eton Mess was very disappointing as it consisted of mostly artificial cream with a couple of tiny pieces of meringue and some watery fruit juice with a few small pieces of fruit. At £6.50 this was disgraceful and I now wish I had complained at the time. The cheesecake and brownie both looked rather small. Restaurant was almost empty so they didn't mind us staying for quite a long time to have our coffee.

    Friendly efficient staff. Me and my friends all ordered different things and all enjoyed our food which were good portions and a good price. The restaurant was clean, full but not to nousy that we could not talk to each other comfortably.

    Amazing building. loads of history. Would recommend having a drink in the bar first and then going up to the restaurant to eat. We ate in The Grill.
    Fab location. You can see Tower Bridge from the front of the building.
