Nice relaxed atmosphere for a weekend breakfast. Good value overall. Server was friendly. Quality of ingredients could be higher but you get what you pay for. I liked it. An oasis of calm in the city.

Arrived for breakfast. A great find and good value. Good breakfast, well cooked and delivered by a friendly staff. A nice venue, close to the Tower of London. They do lunches as well. In nice weather there is a courtyard style eating area under a rather large tree.

Top tip: breakfast at nearby hotel approx £20 a head if booked online with room, on arrival at hotel told about 'weekend offer' breakfast for £10, much better decision to come to the Kitchen! For £6.50 (before 11am) you get a huge cooked breakfast including coffee/tea and toast. Plus it's part of All Hallows church so your money is helping... More

Kitchen @ Tower had delicious food, reasonable prices, and a friendly staff. Service was a bit slow for the amount of people in the restaurant, but sufficient. I opted for a lighter lunch and my friend had the fish & chips. Both were very good. This is a convenient place to go if you are visiting the Tower of London... More

Stopped in after a busy morning of walking around London. The close proximity to the Tower of London made it a great location to have a place to sit and eat lunch. It was not very expensive and everybody in the family enjoyed their lunch. The staff was friendly and it was a nice airy restaurant versus some of the... More

Fabulous food, fantastic staff!! We fell upon this wonderful place by accident, and what a find. Lovely owner who makes running a busy place look easy!! Obviously freshly prepared food, which was scrumptious! Don't bother with Wagamama's round the corner, or fish n chips!! Just go for the best!! Next time we're down we know where we'll be heading!!!

I arranged a visit to London for my other halfs birthday. Due to the very over the top cost of breakfast at our hotel we chose to look else where, feeling we would have a much better, much less 'large branded' experience! After scouring the internet I fell upon this hidden gem a few minutes from where we were staying,... More

Twice in the last few weeks have we been to this lovely little restaurant and you will not find a more friendly place to grab breakfast or afternoon tea. The staff make you feel at home, the menu is uncomplicated and the food just as mum used to make it. Great place. Will be back.

Was staying locally at the new Cheval Three Quays and the security guard recommended the Kitchen. Lovely, friendly service, good food - I was very happy, as were the rest of my group (wife and 2 friends)

Ventured out to The Kitchen one morning and grabbed breakfast. The location was great as it was right next to the Tower and across from our hotel. Food was excellent - my partner and I ordered the English Breakfast (of course) and a meat pie (can't remember what kind). Service was amazing as the server assured me that my ordering... More
