A first class restaurant with a fabulous sophisticated menu of food and drinks and amazing views out onto the river Thames right next to the Millennium Bridge and with the Tate Modern on the opposite bank. Beautiful. Perfect .. everything.

Northbank is located next to the Millenium Bridge with spectacular views of the Tate Modern and Shakespeare's Globe Theatre and just a short walk from St Paul's Cathedral. Enjoy a Modern British menu with a West Country influence along with Cornish ales, ciders, cocktails and wines. Together with river views, a terrace and friendly service, it is a great lunch and dinner getaway.
