Known for its “great view” of nearby Tower Bridge and menu of British carnivore classics (“it serves what it says: meat, meat, meat, with limited veggie choice)” – this D&D venue was conceived by the late Sir Terence Conran as part of his 1990s ‘Gastrodrome’ food complex. A typical assessment of the food is that results are “OK for work purposes, but expensive”. A big plus in the era of outdoor dining was that the terrace is “comfortable and warm” even in cooler months, thanks to “heaters that really work!”.

This business-friendly D&D London venue plays to its strengths: the spectacular Tower Bridge setting, plus a well-constructed menu of meaty, classic British dishes. Originally part of the late Sir Terence Conran’s ‘Gastrodome’ project in the 1990s, fans “have been coming here for years” and for a simple grill in prime Thames-side territory, it’s worth remembering.

Created by Sir Terence Conran as part of his ’90s ‘gastrodrome’ overlooking Tower Bridge, this D&D London venue is valued for its “splendid location, especially at night”. “Attentive service” makes it business-friendly, and it “lends itself to group bookings with good table sizes”. Its wide menu, incorporating lots of steak and grill options, doesn’t set the world on fire, but was well-rated this year.

For 31 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. In a typical year, diners submit over 50,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK. Each year, the guide is re-written from scratch based on this survey (although for the 2021 edition, reviews are little changed from 2020 as no survey could run for that year).
