We stopped here on a hot, hungover day for a cocktail in the shade (and because 2 of our party we're wearing trainers which meant they were refused entry to Sushi Samba!). When we arrived we were told we couldn't sit in the ground floor area, but could sit outside or upstairs. We opted for outside and ordered some cocktails. They took a LONG time to arrive!

It is at the bottom of Heron Tower and definitely doesn't have the glam of the two restaurants at the top of the tower - Sushi Samba and Duck and Waffle. It wasn't easy to find either, because it is to the side of the building. It belongs to the same chain that operates Folly, the Anthologist etc. It has the same look and feel to it - high ceilings, benches and floral design. I went there for...more
