3 Places To Eat in Tower Hill
1. COPPA CLUB
Ever wanted to sit in a private glass igloo, overlooking the Thames and Tower Bridge, whilst tucking into fine, seasonal British cooking?
Well, Coppa Club were doing isolated bubbles before it was government-mandated - talk about being ahead of the times! There are a few Coppa Clubs around the UK, and they're all beautiful and classily decorated, but none of them have so iconic a view as the London branch. I always recommend this spot for people who won't be in London long and want to soak up as many sites as possible and tuck into a range of grills, pastas, pizzas - all with a side of truffle fries, of course.
2. The Dickens Inn
It's all about getting the balance of "pub-grub" and "classy establishment" if you're wanting to eat out in London without attending only Michelin-starred restaurants that require you take out a small loan to afford more than a side salad... Of course I'm being facetious and by all means, they're all worth a visit. But sometimes you want something simple, without compromising on quality, and that's where The Dickens Inn comes into the picture, inspired by the English writer and social critic, Charles Dickens. Between the eye-catching floral exterior, the varied drink selection and the value for money food selection, you're in for a good time by St Katharine's dock.
3. Bravas Tapas
It is my great hope that I'm not the only one who gets more than a little overexcited by the idea of tapas - provided you're with people who are good at sharing, because there's nothing quite like having to wrestle for the last Bravas Tapas Crispy Foie Gras Stuffed Quail... The small plate selection is a prime example of modernising traditional dishes for the good, rather than for the sake of it, and Bravas Tapas feels very much like a slice of Spain in Tower Hill.
