SquareMeal Review of The Draft House Tower Bridge SE1

For somewhere that takes everything it does so seriously, the Draft House is really rather a hoot. Beer drinkers can order third of a pint ‘samples’ at this self-styled ‘home of the third’, which lists hundreds of craft brews in bottle or on tap – all complemented by a range of ale-friendly food to have you drooling. The range of burgers with various toppings, char-pit ribs or chilli-cheese fries, could hail from a new-generation diner, while foot-long pork scratchings, Scotch eggs with curried mayonnaise, Fish & Chips, and sticky toffee pudding betray British leanings. But back to the beer: with such brilliantly named brews as Bitter & Twisted, Mongozo Coconut and Schremser Bio-Roggenbier on offer, how could you not be tempted? Vintage posters and rockin’ music complete the picture.

Inspired by the late-60s psychedelic counter-culture, this freaky cocktail bar below the Draft House craft-ale pub by Tower Bridge serves trippy drinks guaranteed to blow your mind. The 'bump' in Bump Caves refers to its range of custom-distilled spirits, which are created using a rotary evaporator. Their signature EKAAT cocktail (Bump malt, Campari, Cocchi di Torino vermouth and sparkling Picpoul) is presented with a 9V battery and a bag of white powder (nothing dodgy we're assured, just tangy citrus acid) – good value at £10. Another off-the-wall shocker is Schiz-a-Colada (Diplomatico Anejo rum, pineapple and crème anglaise), served with an electric cigarette that creates a coconut vapour; far out, indeed. It's not all gimmicks, of course, but one thing's for sure – you've got to see Bump to believe it.
