Buffet style restaurant can be awful but the Leftbank do it so well. Sunday lunch was amazing. Beautiful array of starters. You could literally have pretty much any starter under the sun. From olives and crostini to scotch eggs and prawn cocktails. It had everything! The carvery was excellent. 3 meats to choose from and a great selection of vegetables.... More

Flawless service and reliably delicious food. Have now been to this restaurant more times than I can remember and have never been disappointed. It's hard to keep me happy where food is concerned. So, the Leftbank must be doing something right, time after time after time.

This is my second review of the left bank and there is a very good reason for that. The high standard of both service and food has been maintained.

We went one Saturday evening when a pianist was playing which created a great atmosphere. We were not disappointed, we both tried the celeriac curried soup which was... More

My wife and I have eaten here many times before. This time we were entertaining a guest. The surroundings, standard of service and quality of food were as good as ever. It is so nice to have discovered somewhere that maintains such a high standard. I only wish more hotels were like this.

If you like a buffet then this is the place. As much as you like and plenty of choices for starters, main course and deserts. Excellent value at a fixed price of £25.

Description
At leftbank there are stunning views of the river Thames from wherever you're dining. Linger over gorgeous seasonal food all freshly cooked and served buffet-style so you can help yourself to a little bit of this, a lot of that...you can tuck into three, four or five courses! The food style is English with gorgeous international influences and it's all prepared freshly for you by people who love food. The wood-fired oven, rotisserie and hobs are always in action - a theatre of cooking right before your eyes.
