Enjoyed fish and chips for lunch then coffee and cake later. Good selection of food but better organisation re queuing would help greatly.

We went here for lunch because they had an ad in front of their café for their bestseller fish and chips. Interested, we went it and shared one order of fish and chips. Hubby who dislike the fishy smell in fish hated it. I ate...More

We stopped here for a quick drink while we were visiting the tour. The coffee was good quality and quickly served. Sat inside at one of the tables and it was quite well spaced out.

popped in as part of Tower of London Trip. This café let's down the rest of the site. The layout is bizarre and there is just no organisation. You pay once you have hot food standing in a long queue, the tray's are hidden out...More

Lovely cuppa with gorgeous cakes, didn't have a meal but saw some of the choices and they looked appetising.

The fish and chips are expensive and lukewarm, by the time you get through the payment que, they are cold, also take a credit card as they run out of change and no one knows where the change box isMore

Unlike most museum cafe's this cafe provides an excellent selection of food. This includes salads, soups, hot food items, and yes, fish and chips. It can get crowded so you might want to consider an "off peak" lunch.

A nice lunch that wasn't overly priced. We had the potato & leek soup, which was good. There was a good selection of food, including a large dessert display. The set-up seemed a little confusing and was not the best lay-out for a quick and...More

It's a cafeteria-style takeaway but the food was fresh, high quality and there was a surprisingly large selection. There were hot and cold choices, things cooked to order and all the expected British standards like fish and chips, scones, etc. I was there for lunch...More

Generally, when there is a sole restaurant in a tourist attraction, the food is subpar; not here. One, there is surprising large variety of hot and cold food, deserts and drinks and your portions aren't stingy. Two, the food is visually appealing. Three, the price...More
