My husband loved a dish with black pudding. Desserts were good too, we both ate too much. Next time we will try to get a table on the terrace on... More

My wife and I often visit The Leftbank because the quality of food is good, there are lots of different meats and salads to satisfy everybody's needs and if you want something different just as the chef. If he can do it he will oblige with a smile. Good service as well from the other staff too.

Ok so this isn't great food, but it is good food and very good value for what you are offered. Starters are salads and fish mainly, although there are some meat options too including pate. Mains are a good selection of different hot dishes and various vegetable options. Desserts are again a good selection and there is also cheese. This... More

Went for Sunday lunch with my family. The food was very good but the staff were inattentive and apathetic. Very hard to get a drink and get attention from the staff. It's a shame because so much is good but this spoils it.

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.
