Steak was amazing, cooked to just the way I like. Wine was great, service was polite and non-judgemental, considering how drunk I was. Will go again and recommend to friends :)

The wine was great, food was tasty but very small portions e.g. £15 for 4 small pieces of scallops. I would stick to Bilton and wine or the steak offer. The manager was border line rude. She asked us if we were going to eat, but didn't ask any of the other tables. She said the tables were booked but... More

We ate here last night and had the Friday steak and chips special. It was cooked to perfection and came with a glass of wine for £20, which was excellent value. When you consider the setting, overlooking the Thames, and the attentive and friendly level of service, this is a hidden gem in the city. Try not to miss a... More

I am really struggling to decide on what overall rating to give this restaurant. The steak I had was excellent. My friend had cod and she enjoyed it. The view was lovely. Must across Thames from Globe and Tate. Lovely location. The service was pretty bad. 1.) they forgot to bring out the vegetable sides. 2.) The waitress was constantly... More

Had a world class rib eye steak cooked to prefection washed down with a top flight South African red. Starter was the pork terrine. Faultless quality of food and superb service. The Jaffa cake dessert was unique and very good; a nice twist on a favourite biscuit but served as a cake. Top marks all round. The only criticism is... More

A cosy and intimate restaurant located by the river Thames with a stunning view on the shard and a pleasant staff. Obviously, if you're vegan it's not the place to go, but if you like meat it's definitely one of the best places around ! Warmly recommended.

On Friday evenings they run a special for £20 giving you a steak, chips and glass of South African wine. Situated on the Thames next to the Millinium Bridge.

High Timber has a warm atmosphere, lovely staff and fantastic food - perfect for a long lunch or evening meal. I've been twice over the past two months and I must say it has been sublime - the fish of the day is perfection and steaks are fantastic. Best of all however is the Dom Pedro with salted caramel ice... More

We had a very nice dinner here for a group of about 40 people. The service was excellent, and the food was quite good, with a few minor slips. We had a limited menu so we didn't get a chance to see the full range of offerings, but what we had was fine. One thing to note if you are... More
