“Panoramas over the Thames” and “an excellent view of Tower Bridge” provide extra incentive to discover this popular fish brasserie, at the foot of a Wapping development (sibling to a long-standing original, in Ongar). It offers a “well-put-together” all-round experience, incorporating “professional” service that “goes the extra mile”, with “well-cooked and presented” fish and seafood.

“If you nab a window table, you get great views” of the Thames, Tower Bridge and City at this “clean-lined, sharp and professional” fish brasserie at the foot of a Wapping development (sibling to a long-standing original, in Ongar). A superb all-rounder, it deserves to be (even) better known, given its mix of “expertly prepared” fish (“fresh ingredients handled with a light touch and the confidence not to over-egg things”), “very accommodating and unobtrusive service” and “impressive” location.

“The view of Tower Bridge and The Shard is stunning” from this Wapping brasserie (offshoot from the long-established Ongar original), which has a “wonderful location by the Thames”. “They do serve meat, but the fish or seafood is the way to go”“it’s exceptional, very fresh and well-presented”.

“A fantastic location with brilliant views over towards Tower Bridge”, isn’t the only reason this Wapping venue is “always busy”: its fish and seafood is “always superb” too. Sibling to a well-established Ongar venture, it’s “generally filled with Essex likely lads and their molls”.
