It is a good place to get a decent photo of Tower Bridge, grab a bit to eat and get a very small history lesson of working life in London.

Excellent location and view but almost empty on a Tuesday lunchtime, so why? Eclipsed by trendier alternatives? Not exactly well sign posted for passing traffic? No lift and looks shut? Mgmt need to know. View is spectacular, beetroot and goats cheese starter was spectacularly good!...More
