Harden's survey result
“You can’t beat the view” from the 31st floor of Western Europe’s tallest building: “sitting up in the heavens, overlooking the twinkling lights of London” puts it high on some diners’ lists “for a special occasion”. Prices at this Hong Kong-owned landmark venture are appropriately “astronomical”, but the food is definitely not out-of-this-world and for too many reporters the overall package “can seem poor value for money (even with the special deal!)”
“An utterly disgraceful fleecing of out-of-towners looking for a glamorous ‘occasion’ meal but getting ripped off!” – that’s the gist of too many reports on this 31st-floor chamber which is “so completely disappointing” it “risks giving the Capital a bad name”. “You do get a remarkable view of London” and romantics say it’s “the perfect place to watch the sunset and the lights coming on over the City”… “but that’s it!”. Top Tip – “breakfast is the still-not-cheap-but-cheapest way to sample this otherwise extortionate experience: book the earliest slot the ensure a window table and the chance to watch the city awake!!”
“Only go for the view!” (admittedly “spectacular”) to this swish (but “soulless”) chamber on the Shard’s 31st floor, where “average food is indifferently served” at extortionate expense. “If you go, go on a deal”.
“The views and the loos are amazing… the rest’s not worth it” – that’s the often-damning verdict on the “wondrously designed” but shamelessly “overpriced” vantage point on the Shard’s 31st-floor.
