This is a lovely hidden gem. Even though it is so close the the Tower of London it is peaceful and we've always got a table. Lovely wholesome food and very nice coffee and cake selection for pudding. Really friendly service too. We only stumbled across this place recently but will definitely be back now we've found it.

We purchased a groupon for afternoon tea with fizz and it was really lovely - a bargain for the price. Everything was lovely, they kept us topped up with tea, lots of food and the staff were excellent even packing up the cakes we couldn't manage so we could take them home. Would highly recommend and great location.

we found this place quite by accident, breakfast was delicious although it could have been warmer, the staff were very pleasant and helpful, the cost was reasonable, would visit again now that we know where it is

Went there for the Royal afternoon tea. Were seated immediately and offered tea, coffee or hot chocolate then we were immediately brought the selection of cakes and sandwiches and the champagne. Sandwiches were salmon, cucumber and egg which were all nice. Special mention must go to the toffee cake and scones which were truly delicious. Service was very friendly without... More

Found this place by accident on line and ate breakfast prior to visiting Tower of London. Loved the food and the people. The menu was varied and offered a great traditional breakfast. No better place to get away from the hustle and bustle of the holiday crowds. Look forward to visiting upon my next trip to London.

This time we went for the liver and bacon and it's yummy, lamb's liver, shredded bacon the best mash ever and peas for £10.50 in proper gravy. they also do fish and chips which looked good and pies and...

I love this quirky restaurant/cafe. It's in a lovely location, the interior is colourful and quirky and the staff are a delight; friendly and funny and chatty (if you so desire). The food is of a good quality, I've had breakfast there a number of times and afternoon tea on two occasions. It may not be a 5-star restaurant but... More

Today I ate at kitchen@tower with my husband and young child. I had the fish and chips and my husband had the beefeater burger. Both meals were cooked to perfection and served within a reasonable time. The service was good and the atmosphere of the restaurant was nice and relaxed.
