I spent half a day walking through the exhibits at the Tate. I decided to break it up with a solo meal in this restaurant. It was quite busy, but there was a table for one, unfortunately there wasn't a table available by the window....More

We went to this restaurant a couple of years ago and it was a knockout. Unfortunately it seems to have gone badly downhill. The views are still good of course and the service was good but the food was pretty average. They still have an...More

I had a great lunch here. Two of us had three courses. I started with a pea soup with ginger and chilli, and an asparagus torpedo! It was lovely, and a generous portion. I can't remember what my friend had, I was so happy enjoying...More

The window seats along the 6th floor bar are one of my favourite places to perch and have a beer or glass of wine in the evening, if only to see the amazing view of St Paul's cathedral. This is easily one of the very...More

If we can get a window seat, the sixth floor view of the Thames, St. Paul's and the city is a real pleasure. However, after a few visits over the years, the menu mystifies us, the food we've ordered just hasn't been our taste (e.g.,...More

This "Kitchen" restaurant is one of the worst places we have ever visited in relation to customer service. Reviewers say "great view" etc but the point of the place is that it is a venue for FOOD! The Tate has utterly lost the plot and...More

The cafe is on 6th floor so has a good view over either the Switchroom (for the restaurant) or the Thames (for the bar). We had lunch in the restaurant - food was good but the service was poor. We waited more than 20 minutes...More

Even before the arrival of the instantly iconic Shard,
the riverside scene in Southwark had moved well beyond
any up-and-coming phase of development. For quite some
time, locals and out-of-towners alike have loved
browsing the boutiques of Bermondsey High Street,
foraging through the bounteous stalls at centuries old
foodie haven Borough Market, and flocking to the banks
of the Thames to enjoy some of Britain's biggest
