Let’s do environment first... the place looks the business. We were meeting up for a work reunion and this seemed the ideal venue. Although it was Friday evening near the heart of the city, we prebooked a table for us all and once the ‘squatters’...More

Food was excellent. Value was satisfactory. Staff were attentive. There was a diverse enough menu without being spoilt for choice, and we didn't need to wait too long. I was exhausted from work so maybe that has a lot to do with the four stars...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
