    Atmosphere is lovely, service is excellent, food is excellent quality — fillet of cod I ate was exquisite.

    Excellent value for money with the offer of two courses and a drink for £20 per head. I was treating a friend to an early birthday present. We were shown to a table beside the window with a superb view of the city skyline. There was a good choice of starters and main courses. We decided to have a dessert and both chose ide-cream which consisted of three generous scoops of a variety of flavours, all homemade. Served with our coffee were two pieces of fudge and two homemade chocolates which we took home with us since we had had an adequate sufficiency by the time we had finished all three courses. The waiters were all very attentive and assisted us with our coats before we left.

    Theatre Supper was excellent value in a beautiful setting.

    The Tower is a lovely place to go. Fantastic offer on the light lunch, complete with a glass of wine. My aged friend and I were both very happy with our choices - lovely soup and salmon starters, delicious fishcake and mushroom tagliatelle for mains, completed with coffee and petit fours. Service was very good.

    apparently well run establishment, delivering a value for money experience for us (although we were enjoying a special deal)

    Great food & service but overall a bit pricey. My starter was King prawn, avocado & chilli on brown toast - great meal but not spicy enough, there were chilies but couldn’t taste them. Main course of shellfish bouillabaisse was excellent.
