With Tower Bridge, the Thames and the Tower of London on its doorstep, this all-purpose venue enjoys the sort of classic views that launched a thousand picture postcards. The building itself is a
plain-deal pavilion of admirable modesty, complete with a sought-after terrace for sightseeing; inside, expect lots of hand-crafted features, from earthenware beer jugs to banqueting-style tables –
perhaps referencing the eponymous reveller from Chaucer’s Canterbury Tales. The food is contemporary British with cosmopolitan touches, from saffron linguine with Cornish crab or a ‘perfectly soft’
poached egg on rocket with pickled mushrooms to salt-marsh lamb three ways, a ‘sumptuous’ herb risotto with Rosary goats’ cheese or doughnuts with jammy sauce. Twin bars dispense punch bowls,
vintage cocktails and nicely balanced wines, alongside resolutely local ales from the Kernel and Meantime breweries. Service blows hot and cold.

Only, it’s not. In fact, once you’ve gotten over the spectacular views and taken in the options on their seasonal, contemporary British menu, you start to realise that it’s all actually rather good by tourist-ville standards...

For a touristic all rounder wedged between The Tower of London and Tower Bridge, this place dishes out a quality dining experience and an excellent introduction to the best of British fare.Yeah, I was really impressed with my meal. Everything was tasty and freshly prepared and (according to the menu anyway) seasonal and made with local produce. Service was friendly. The view was iconic...

She says: My younger brother from Japan came to visit me in London a few weeks ago. I quickly scanned Hot Dinners for a restaurant to welcome him to London, somewhere that could provide him with a taste of the Great British dining scene. There was a new name I hadn’t seen before – Perkin Reveller. With marvellous views of the Thames and a menu made ‘from the finest seasonal British ingredients, and complemented with foaming jugs of locally brewed beer, exceptional wines’… I was sold!...
