We had lunch here last week. We had not booked and there was only one available table outside but as we felt the outside area was a little lacking in atmosphere we were quite happy to sit inside. The menu was fairly brief but very...good and both the quality of the food and the presentation were excellent. The salad dressing was especially noteworthy. Next time we are in London we’d like to return with the rest of the family who also love good food.More

The service was excellent - efficient, attentive and friendly. A good choice of South African wines at very good prices. The food was very good indeed and well presented. We shall be returning for one of their special wine dinners.

It was my first visit and it’s decent. Little tricky to find as you need to walk down High Timber to get access, the other local streets leading to the river Thames don’t have a riverside path. A decent wine list range from £40 to...whatever you want to pay. Good selection and as you’d expect South African which is all good. For starters I had salmon which was full of flavour and a decent portion. For main we (there were 3 of us) had a medium rare rib which came sliced accompanied by some creamy spinach, mushroom and Brussels sprouts with Ndjua. The steak came with chips which were a bit disappointing as dried and tasteless. The cheese board was lovely, three decent cheeses with chutney and some delicious crackers. Service was great and we weren’t rushed at all.More

Fantastic little find on the river Thames near the millennium bridge. Friendly staff who went out of their way to accommodate us. A well thought out wine list that complimented the best burger I have had in a long, long time. Possibly ever! Can’t recommend...it enough. The river view is also a big bonus.More

I really enjoyed my melon starter, my ribeye main and my double expresso. My two friends were neutral about their melons then schnitzels. Hence the 4 stars. The wine list is pricey but the ‘house red and white were acceptable. It’s a strange location on...the Thames riverbank from the Blackfriars bridges way along the Thames walkway until it stops opposite the Globe theatre. The servers were enthusiastic and motivated so good luck to them all.More

Had to impress clients and this restaurant was recommended. What a find! Food excellent, ribeye steak worth mentioning. Owner showed us the cellars and will certainly use them for private meals. Awkward to find but do make the effort!
