SquareMeal Review of The Ivy Tower Bridge

"VERY GOOD"

The extraordinary development of the Tower Bridge district keeps getting better. Alongside a brand-new 900-seat theatre, a branch of the Ivy Brasserie has opened as part of the Berkeley Homes mixed-use development close to City Hall. The riverfront-facing restaurant is a more casual version of the Covent Garden original, but the stunning views of Tower Bridge add to its wow-factor. An intimate alfresco terrace (which comes complete with blankets for colder nights) is perfect for those looking to get the full riverside experience. Once inside, you’ll find the brand’s well-groomed, colourful interiors. On our visit, polished waiters talked us through a huge, cuisine-leaping menu that features everything from the famous shepherd’s pie to a truffle chicken sandwich with chips. A starter of scallops came served in a sweet and creamy pea purée, topped with broad beans and lemon zest. Our main also impressed – a thick and rich helping of crab linguine, which we had with a side of indulgent truffle-and-parmesan-topped thick-cut chips. Come dessert, we skipped the Instagram-baiting chocolate bombe for a more traditional crème brûlée, with crisp shards of caramel cracking to reveal a thick custard base. With its super-slick service and stunning location, this incarnation of The Ivy has a slight edge over its counterparts – while critics may moan that The Ivy is predictable, at least it’s predictably good.
