SquareMeal Review of The Reach Bar and Kitchen

Decent Docklands drinking and dining within easy reach of the DLR is now available at the Gallions Hotel – a restored Grade II-listed pile originally opened by P&O in the 1880s to accommodate first-class liner passengers newly disembarked at Albert Docks. Turner-esque views of the river aside, today’s populace can expect a smart, post-industrial warehouse serving global brews and a mix of trad Brit pub grub, Asian dishes and tapas. Start with gratinéed oysters, bruschetta or salmon ceviche, ahead of Cumberland sausages and mash with a boozy Burgundy sauce, beef satay, linguine with pesto, moules marinière or tempura king prawns with pak choi. Puds include the usual suspects (tiramisu, crumbles, brownies etc) and there’s a children’s menu too. A short, largely French wine list offers plenty of quaffable stuff around the £20 mark. Occasional live music is anticipated.
