An excellent experience as always, the Borough Market room is nice, big and buzzy without being too loud. Had a fantastic Portherhouse to share. I feel like the prices have gone up a bit since last time we visited though. More

Steak | Southbank, South East London

Excellent and very attentive service throughout. Despite being a busy Saturday night every member of staff had time for you. And I mean every member of staff from being greeted right through waiting staff to the toilet cleaner who greeted me cheerfully and with a smile and opened the door for me. Food was also excellent and the advice given on what cut to have and how best to have it was spot on. Also advice on the wine list was brilliant. We throughly enjoyed the Gaucho’s experience thank you More

Afternoon Tea | London Bridge, South East London

Afternoon tea was stunning, I came in January with my cousin, and I knew I had to bring my mum and my grandma. I don’t think my grandma will ever get over how lovely the view and the atmosphere was, we even got to see a rainbow that went all the way over the water! Thank you for helping me create such a lovely moment for my grandma and mother. 10/10 More

Contemporary British | London Bridge, South East London

My college aged daughter and I were in London for a brief time and wished to do something special. This was the perfect place. We originally had reservations for 8:00 pm, but due to a prior engagement had to push the reservation to 9:30 pm and each time we called - the restaurant was more than accommodating. We were lucky enough to get a table for two right by the glass. The view was spectacular. The music they played throughout the evening was perfect background music (maybe a bit too elevator like, but calming). We had three people attending to us. When the first drink order took longer than the appetizers to arrive, they quickly apologized and said they'd be complementary. I had the salmon and my daughter a steak - they were fantastic. Lovely and very special dinner. People pay money to go for the view at the Shard, better to go for dinner or drinks so you get the view and great food. More
