Overlooking the London Monument, The Hydrant is a bustling 2-level bar and restaurant serving a mixture of eclectic European cuisine, bar food and tapas platters.

With versatile seating options, The Hydrant menus cater for each area. The chic mezzanine level serves hearty, freshly made European dishes, such as corn-fed chicken breast filled with wild mushrooms and mascarpone served with a flageolet bean and sage stew. The downstairs bar area is more relaxed, serving simple home-made bar meals and tapas.

The Hydrant bar and restaurant offers its diners on either floor a choice of more than 40 different wines from around the world, as well as a selection of bottled beers and ciders.

With a lively atmosphere and only a stone’s throw from the banks of the Thames, The Hydrant Monument is essential city centre dining. Monument Tube Station is only a 1-minute walk away.

    Friday lunchtime Good simple food reasonably priced. I was disappointed by the mackerel salad - fish good, salad poor

    My partner and i arrived at the fine line starving after a day out in london. We were greated pleasantly at the door and ushered to our table. The food was great and came in less than 20 mins which was impressive given how busy it was. The waiter was happy and informatative, even helping us pick our wine! I would definitely visit here again

    I went for a business lunch with an associate. While the location and service were excellent I would say that the food was well below par for the price.
