Great British dishes start with great British ingredients

We are proud to work with farmers, fishmongers and grocers who share our passion and ethical stances. Our groceries and bread are delivered daily from Borough Market, with our meats coming to us from high-welfare Lake District Farms. Our fish is responsibly sourced from UK waters whilst our pantries are stocked with produce from local London businesses wherever possible.

A la carte dining and a traditional British roast on Sundays

Our English menus are flavoursome, uncomplex and flattered by a well-chosen wine list. Enjoy seasonal, produce-driven cooking that celebrates the best of British ingredients on our a la carte menu, and if you are ready to indulge, our sharing specials and expert puddings are a must-order! Meanwhile, our generous Sunday roast is one of the best in the area and served with pillowy Yorkshire puddings and all the trimmings, of course.

Add a little magic to your afternoon tea

Our ‘A Midsummer Night’s Dream’ afternoon tea features an array of tempting fancies inspired by Shakespeare’s great romantic comedy. Dainty wild mushrooms and evocative floral and berry flavours recreate the characters’ journeys through the play. Our heady Love Potion cocktail is a fitting accompaniment, whilst steaming silver teapots of loose-leaf tea brew. For a truly Shakespearean day out, pair with a fascinating tour of the Globe theatre next door.

For guests with a savoury tooth, our Gentleman’s afternoon tea is a deliciously different indulgence. Think hearty rare-breed sausage rolls, baked Stilton cheese scones and potted smoked salmon.

Comfortable dining in a stylish setting near Tate Modern

Come for dinner but stay for the relaxed yet chic vibes and that view. By day, our second-floor dining room is light, airy and pleasant, and come dust the lighting is low and the views of the river are particularly special.
