Popped in here for an early lunch (Monday). The food was amazing, staff friendly and helpful and it is great value for money. Would most definitely return and thoroughly recommend this wonderful place.

Went there for an afternoon tea after buying a Groupon coupon. The food was good and nicely presented (and lots of it, none of us could finish it!). The service was correct. Recommended for the price.

Reasonably priced; simple and tasty food. 3 of us all had different lunch meals which hit the spot after a busy but chilly visit to the Tower of London. A nice change from having a sandwich in a chain coffee shop. Friendly, fast service.

Myself, granddaughter and two great grandchildren were making a half term visit to the Tower of London. Whilst looking for activities to keep the children occupied on the 2 hour train journey I 'discovered' The Kitchen. What a discovery! We arrived at about 1.45pm after a very enjoyable three and a half hour visit to the Tower. The staff were... More

I was recently privileged to visit The Kitchen @ Tower (07/02/15) for afternoon tea with champagne courtesy of a deal I had purchased on groupon. Upon arrival, my friend and I were immediately greeted by a friendly waiter who took us to our reserved table. Straight away we were supplied with a selection of scrumptious looking cakes, scones and sandwiches.... More

I had a huge pot of... More

Came here for the early bird breakfast while staying in London recently. Great location, right next to the Tower of London and Londons oldest church, All Hallows. £6.50 for brekkie before 11am is good value - would recommend
