A little disappointed how long it took to get outlet order in. However once the drinks came, starters followed soon after. Amazing food! Had a lot if choice on the menu too.

There was no luxury feel to my dining experience. I originally booked the evening for an anniversary occasion, however the staff were not particularly friendly, and food really was not that great, especially given the extreme high price points. We received an offer for 50% off food, which allowed us to afford to dine there, I was expecting a 5 star experience with incredible food, however the dishes were bland and some ingredients were not available (such as the calamari which was in a few dishes on the menu).

Great views over the Thames. Worth going just for that. Attentive service without being over powering. All in all a good experience

Very nice views of the Thames and a menu bursting with choice.

I took a friend here for chocolate afternoon tea for her birthday. While the food -and quantity - was fantastic and the venue was very nice, the service left a lot to be desired! It's very very slow. Overall we had a good time but don't book this if you're in a rush!
