We had our work Christmas do , third year running. A large party of 26 attended. There was a good variety of food. The service was excellent and everyone enjoyed the evening. Would recommend to everyone. The restaurant booking team were incredibly helpful as our party kept increasing in size. They kindly accommodated us all.

We took two friends for lunch at the Leftbank on Wednesday. The buffet is amazing, with plenty of choice for starters, mains and desserts. The restaurant also provided Christmas crackers on the tables, which added to the festive feel. All the restaurant staff were extremely friendly and courteous, and we had a really relaxing, filling and enjoyable time. This restaurant... More

Went to the lunchtime buffet. So good. I overate yet again! Such an excellent choice that I wanted to taste everything but couldn't manage that. Quality of food, particularly the meat was first class and I just loved the puddings. I am glad fresh fruit salad was included after all that heavy food. Not eating until sometime tomorrow. What else... More

I use this establishment as it's about equidistant to several old work colleagues; we eat here fairly regularly, ergo it must be Ok! What I can never understand is the matching of vegetables to the cooked meats/fish! That said the food is always good as is the service, even though they never even attempt to welcome repeat customers, which I'm... More

Outstanding. The range of imaginative, superb salads is equally met by the huge amount of roasted meets - stacked shoulders of lamb, to slow cooked sides of beef, all shredded to help yourself . The deserts were as equally good. I couldn't recommend highly enough.

What delightful evening we spent dining here with such an amazing atmosphere. The starters were delicious. We also tried the bread bin - so scrumpy and what different types of bread. I opted for the fish pie as a main -it was divine and one of the best I've ever eaten. A must for all.

Christmas party with friends at the Leftbank Restaurant is simply the best in the area for quality of venue, food and entertainment.

My daughter and I are both gluten and dairy free. I'm also intolerant to eggs and potato. The restaurant had loads of different things that I could eat and Daniel was fantastic at showing me what we could and couldn't eat.

Description
At leftbank there are stunning views of the river Thames from wherever you're dining. Linger over gorgeous seasonal food all freshly cooked and served buffet-style so you can help yourself to a little bit of this, a lot of that...you can tuck into three, four or five courses! The food style is English with gorgeous international influences and it's all prepared freshly for you by people who love food. The wood-fired oven, rotisserie and hobs are always in action - a theatre of cooking right before your eyes.
