Views of the Thames and a chic interior combine to create a lovely setting for this well-groomed South Bank destination: on the ground floor of a swish hotel near Blackfriars Bridge. It escaped the harsh criticisms of past years in the most recent survey feedback: in particular its “super buffet brunch” with bottomless Prosecco is a top feature.

“Way overpriced” – this “noisy” nautical-themed dining room on the South Bank near Blackfriars Bridge has “amazing views of the river” (if from ground-floor level) but the “silly, confusing menu” of sharing plates is simply “not appropriate for a high-end hotel”. The “bottomless fizz” and “burgers-and-brunch catering that masquerades as dining” are clues that it’s “probably focused on the tourist wallet”.

“Top-floor prices with a ground-floor view” makes for an often unhappy combination in the “trying-to-be-über-cool” dining room of this Thames-side, US-owned hotel, near Blackfriars Bridge. The odd fan does applaud its “fabulous Eurofusion fare”, but the whole “bizarre sharing concept” seems like “too much style-over-substance” and “hugely overpriced: even with someone else paying it seemed like a rip off”.

The “nautical-themed setting” and “splendid Thames views” of this American-owned hotel dining room on the South Bank “do justice to the former shipping-line building’s heritage”. Instances of food that’s “nothing exciting or special” however, lead to numerous gripes about the “unwarranted price tag”.
