Where to Eat South of the River

Friday 14 November 2014 by Tim Ripman London’s South Bank has become significantly known as an arts and entertainment district, where restaurants and bars now line the length of the river. With a fantastic view of the Thames and the skyline of London, this is a great place to relax after work or having explored the sights of the city.

Where to eat

The Riverside is a contemporary pub that sits directly beneath SACO @ St George Wharf, set alongside the River Thames, with a large outdoor seating area that provides stunning views across to the imposing skyline. You’ll discover traditional British classics with style and an excellent drinks menu to peruse - a place to truly kick back and relax.

Brunswick House is situated within a beautiful historic Georgian building and the large glass chandeliers hanging from the ceiling are something to behold – this is a place of sheer elegance and sophistication, but in a calming and relaxed atmosphere. Enjoy gourmet seasonal dishes with a twist; the menu changes daily, and by night, it turns a little more adventurous! 

Set on the third floor of the Royal Festival Hall, Skylon provides spectacular views and exquisite cuisine. The Destination restaurant serves delicious European food in a tasteful setting, whilst the Grill is more relaxed, and why not pop into the bar afterwards for a cocktail and admire the views of the Thames through the floor-length windows.

Las Iguanas is a vibrant and exotic restaurant located in the Southbank Centre, adjacent to the Royal Festival Hall and the London Eye. The food here is a fusion of Latin American influences, bursting with flavour and made with love and pride. Don’t miss out on their fantastic cocktails either – we’d recommend the classic and authentic Margarita or Caipirinha!
