Description: Home / About us MENU / Private Hire Contact / Gallery What's on? Sign Up / Gift Vouchers Tompkins is an uber-stylish new restaurant and bar located within Pan Peninsula, the UK's tallest ever residential building, in the heart of London's docklands. Providing a home from home for residents and a stunning destination venue for visitors, it also boasts the largest al fresco waterside dining and drinking space in the whole of the area. Based on the great brasseries of New York City, Tompkins offers a fresh and exciting dining experience at any time of the day. The theme continues with Tompkins' take on classic brasserie fare such as Tuna Tartare, Grilled Tiger Prawns and Angus Rib Eye Steak & Fries, without forgetting our latest addition to the menu; classic pizzas Tompkins is divided into four areas: a main bar, lounge, restaurant and mezzanine bar. Design elements are both eclectic and dramatic, incorporating an eight metre-long, bronze-fronted bar, bespoke Tom Dixon chandeliers and a Foscarini cloud mural. The floor throughout is made from small blocks of solid Argentinean eucalyptus wood, whilst the furniture is a mix of styles and periods, from 1950's leather sofas to glossy black lacquer tables.

Booked a table 2 months in advance for my boyfriends 21st birthday, a month later I received a phone call cancelling my reservation with no reason given, like an idiot I rebooked for the following day. When we arrived, spending over £30 to get there, we find out that the kitchen has closed and no one has bothered to let us know - even though they had my number! Absolutely horrified with the customer service and ruined his 21st birthday!!

Its in the Canary Wharf area in the Pan Peninsula Residences. Right on the water. At the South Quay DLR Station. A great water view of one of the inlets. Its a very large restaurant but it wasn't crowded. I had one of the pastas - delicious, flavorful. The service was very attentive.

We found this place on a quiet afternoon and were delighted. Nice location, nice staff and a very pleasant environment. The food was delicious - well-prepared with good quality ingredients. For what we wanted and when, this was perfect - and we will probably return. Give it a try.

I've been unfortunate enough to eat and drink here more than once. Once by choice and the other times as part of a group. Overall I've been for breakfast, lunch and drinks

The food is bad; really bad. Poor quality ingredients and badly cooked. The restaurant service is also poor and staff are indifferent to customer satisfaction.

In the bar, the beers are over priced even by Wharf prices and in the cocktail bar at the top of the tower, the staff dont know how to make cocktails; even the ones on the menu are mixed with the wrong spirits and with the wrong techniques.

Other than the view from the top, this place has no redeeming features.

Did not have high hopes as was struggling to find somewhere to eat at Canary Wharf on a Sunday-pleasantly surprised though-good steak cooked to order and my wife's fish and chips were excellent-portions could be a bit bigger though-would definitely return though
