SquareMeal Review of Coppa Club Tower Bridge

Bronze Award

This all-day restaurant, bar and lounge is the first non-members site for a brand which began with Coppa Club Sonning in Berkshire. Situated next to the Tower of London and overlooking the Thames and HMS Belfast, this London debut offers a menu of straightforward European dishes including steaks, pizzas and pasta, as well as superfood salads. The food doesn't quite deliver, especially in comparison with the striking interior and gorgeous views. A serving of tagliatelle Bolognese was insipid, while some crispy fried squid was tough as old boots. On the other hand, seared king prawns with garlic, lemon and chilli were juicy and delicious (served on a hunk of bread to soak up the flavoursome fishy juices), while a Tomahawk pork chop was chunky and moist, well-paired with sage, slow-cooked greens and lemon. A flourless chocolate and almond cake with orangey crème fraiche was also delicious. Staff are friendly, accommodating and well-informed and the cocktails are top-notch: we recommend the Toasted Nut Sours (amaretto, Frangelico, lemon, egg white, bitters and Griottines cherry). Coppa Club has found a fantastic site with great potential, but the kitchen here needs to improve.

About

The concept behind Coppa Club is that it has all the benefits of a members club but without the fees and exclusivity. So, you can expect all-day dining, suitable for both early risers and night owls, networking-style events, a community feel and even laptop-friendly spaces, but without the usual price tag. There are over ten Coppa Clubs around the UK, but the Tower Bridge branch is one of the most recognised because of its incredible location and stunning views. 

While many people know of Coppa Club Tower Bridge thanks to the viral sensation of its outdoor pods, there's much more on offer here than just an Instagram-worthy setting. The cosy lounge space, for example, is decorated with rich colours, sinkable chairs and lots of greenery for a laid-back, lived-in feel. It's a great space for enjoying a coffee and looking out to the terrace. There's also a sophisticated restaurant with large booths for ordering a snack, lunch or dinner at, and a bar which serves both coffee and cocktails, and everything in between. 

The food menu has a modern European feel, with dishes from Spain, Italy and Britain all included. The list boasts a lot of crowd pleasers so that there's something for everyone. Choose from a range of sourdough pizzas, fresh salads, antipasti, pastas and on-the-grill dishes. Highlights include rare-seared yellowfin tuna, grilled marinated chicken with skinny fries, king prawn linguine, and the club Caesar salad. And, at the weekend, there's a great brunch selection with buckwheat and rye pancakes, crushed avocado and eggs and the skillet breakfast with sausage, bacon, black pudding, eggs and all the trimmings. 

Drinks wise, expect all the usuals when it comes to coffee - from a cortado to a chai latte - and when you're in the mood for something stronger the bar has a fabulous cocktail menu. We like the sound of the Cuban Missionary with Havana Club Cuban Spiced, peach, honey, pineapple juice and fresh mint, and the Scots 75 with Hendrick's gin, strawberries, rhubarb and Piper Heidsieck Brut NV Champagne.

Poor service with great view.

The view is great, if you get the view. This is your text book restaurant that uses the location and view against you by providing poor service and poor attitude. They have the if you don't like it then go somewhere else attitude.

We looked online to make reservations but all the time slots were available for early morning breakfast, so we decided not too. Poor choice, make a reservation. As soon as we walked in and the hostess/manager asked if we are walk inns she instantly git irrated and threw a fit that everything was fully booked and sat us in the back of the bar all tucked in. The place was empty when we walked in, and the place was empty when we left. She said the same to other people when they came in as well.

The food was brilliant, decor was amazing but the service was truly poor. Not only did the waiter take a while to bring the bill but the food was delayed, menus were not given to me whilst waiting in the freezing cold Cabanas.

I visited the Coppa Club for lunch a couple of months back. We booked to sit in a pod, with high expectations. The food itself was very good, couldn't fault it. However the pod experience wasn't brilliant. It didn't fell particularly clean as the seats were covered in old, furry blanket like covers that were quite uncomfortable and itched my legs!! It was very hot in there also, so i would rather sit in the restaurant next time. .

Service has always been brilliant, food simple yet great and the igloos at the winter time were just amazing, love forward thinking places.
