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 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.

A “good riverside location” near Tower Bridge is what most qualifies this D&D London venue as “a decent option”, as its “high-end comfort food” is “never special, and pricey for what you get”. Its better-known stablemate, Le Pont de la Tour, is next door but one.

“Pleasant enough by the side of the Thames” – a harsh but fair verdict on this D&D group property near the better-known Pont de la Tour. The focus is on “fairly straightforward” grills, which are most “acceptable as long as you aren’t paying”.
