SquareMeal Review of Le Pont de la Tour Bar & Grill

Bronze Award

The newly refurbished bar at this iconic restaurant is darker and more atmospheric in its new attire. Green art deco furniture gives way to a seductive, heated terrace outside, where – in accordance with the Franglais accent of the whole place – cocktails celebrate the very best of England and France. To eat, there’s a menu of nibbles and sharing plates – if a Nicoise Pan Bagnat with warm goats’ cheese and vegetables doesn’t please, perhaps roast quail with spring onion, chilli and lime will suffice. Come the weekend, expect live music with civilized acoustic sets of classic tunes and jazzy contemporary tracks. This is one for the sophisticats.

A mixed up experience
18 July 2018  
The food was good and good value. The service was mixed. We ordered two glasses of wine, one came. We were given the meal the next door table had ordered which meant two of us were waiting and some dishes were sent back. Then all was taken away to start again. The site is great by the river. The staff were pleasant if with varying degrees of competence. Could be improved if there were jugs of water left on each table but the answer to that suggestion was a definite “Non”!

Raw lamb and soggy salty profiteroles
27 April 2013  
Our party of four ate here last night (a Friday night) and we were all looking forward to it. We dine out often and have expectations of service and food quality that are reasonable and balanced. This was a premium venue and so we expected a high standard of food and also service. We realised that it was a bar and grill, so we weren't expecting restaurant level service either. Unfortunately, the service was more provincial bistro than London restaurant. The most popular wine on the menu was out of stock and the wine waiter recommended completely unsuitable replacements that were markedly different in grape variety and region, showing a very shaky understanding and then made no enquiry about what were planning to eat with the wine. I chose a Jumilla which was very pleasant. The food was very ordinary, and in the case of the lamb steak, inedible. It was almost raw and had a strange chewy consistency, so we sent this back. No member of staff discussed this with us, simply offering us a replacement dish. It's almost as though they were practiced in offering replacements! We declined a replacement and went on to order profiteroles which were pre prepared, so the pastry was chilled and soggy along with the filling… unfortunately one of the profiteroles ordered was overly salty, so much so that it too was inedible and was sent back. To say that our evening was ruined would be overstating it, the ambience is busy and fun and the piano music was pleasant. However based on the food alone, it was very poor. Cannot recommend it, except for the view of Tower Bridge which was very nice
